I've read and would recommend Becoming Vegan, Vegan for Life, and Eating Animals. I'd like to read Eat & Run since I'm an eater and a runner (though not ultras -- eek!).

I read the "Skinny Bitch" books - or enough to get the premise - and also Alicia Silverstone's cookbook - the Kind Diet. The SB books may be good for others, not for me. AS's cookbook is okay, but I know that some recipes used unusual ingredients, and didn't define them. Like the diet field in general, there is a lot of junk out there....

I am reading "Eat & Run" right now - about Scott Jerek, the ultra-marathon runner and vegan. It's a good read for inspiration and for the fun of it. Not so much for facts and figures. A few recipes are included.

I also agree with The China Study and How to Reverse and Prevent Heart Disease, those are the books that got me on a plant based diet.

I second The China Study. It's a really good reference. How to Reverse and Prevent Heart Disease by Dr. Caldwell B. Esselstyn is an excellent resource as well. The Engine 2 Diet by Rip Esselstyn, his son, has recipes, but also a lot of straightforward facts on a vegan diet.

I would suggest Eating Animals and the China Study. Becoming Vegan was very informative too, though I think it is slightly outdated.

I've just recently converted.. I was a vegetarian for years though.. so taking the next step to vegan won't be so tough, i don't think. I just want to make sure im properly educated.
Anyone know of some good books for me to read? I don't really want recipe books (im traveling right now so I can't do mass amounts of cooking anyways) but just good things about vitamins, the food, etc...
someone told me to read Skinny Bitch and I did, but i can say I was less impressed with that book.....
