Recommends it for: any teen thinking about becoming a vegetarian (and their parents)
When I became a vegetarian at 13, I probably would have starved to death if my mom had not bought this book. It has lots of great info for both teens and parents, although it is written for teens. There are chapters covering why vegetarianism is a good choice, how to explain/defend your choices to family/friends/etc., how to get proper nutrition, and how to deal with being meat-free in a meat obsessed world. It is a must-have for any young vegetarian.

It says nothing demeaning about those who ...more

this book is what it is. A lot of the book dealt with how to cope with a family who eats meat and doesn't approve of your choice. The main theme was "do what you know is right no matter what parents tell you. And go behind their back if needs be." It did have some good recipes in it though.
