There is something so calming about this book, so frank, that it puts to rest the feeling that we're not doing enough to spread the word.
Victoria Moran gives us a gentler approach, that is just as important, and is just as effective in our movement to reach more people, and help them transition toward veganism, as demanding it be so.
It is for some people ok to bang on the heads of their peers, and convince them. It is ok for some people to show the horrors of eating meat on the animals that give their all. Most people don't know what it looks like. Most people cannot take the blood, guts, and screams of the dying animals. I know I can't.
I also know that it is the gentle approach that will work on a lot of people, the way they see us living, the example of what a vegan can be, not the youthful, in-your-face methodology some use to justify their being a vegan. It can be both ways, and is just as effective a method, as the other.
Being an example can be a gentle, push, by not being combative, or detail oriented, or exacting, and rude. But by being gracious. She infuses this book with wisdom, and energy, along with a few recipes. I've read it to my husband, and we are both agreed, this is a great book.
I would push everyone to read this book, and give yourselves a break and a breath of fresh air. Victoria Moran is a wonderful writer. Give her a read, and find out for yourself.
