Janet Stranger: America Goes Vegan is two books in one. Glen Merzer, passionately and yet with humor, provides the fact-based narrative of how vegan choices are essential to your own health and to the continuation of life as we know it on our planet. He pulls no punches. Here's an example quote: "We must not delude ourselves into believing that we can escape the climate crisis by any means that does not involve a transformational change in civilization." Ceasing all animal agriculture is foundational to that transformation. Tracy Childs shows you how to put change into action with a wide variety of delicious, healthy recipes. She shows how to make an endless variety of burgers using her burger template. And then there are her recipes for breakfast, sauces, sides, soups, main dishes, desserts, and much more. All made with no added oils or refined sweeteners. This book is an excellent investment in your own health and the future of our planet.

Patty / Amazon customer: Every one in America should read America Goes Vegan! The first part of this book provides solid reasons (backed with references) why animal products are bad for Americans. From how eating meat promotes cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes to how the meat industry negatively impacts our environment, Mr Merzer’s arguments for a meat-free America are convincing and frightening. The second part of this book, has a calming effect in that it provides solutions. Solutions in the form of tasty and easy to make recipes. Ms. Child’s recipes for delicious comfort foods like Cheezy Garlic Bread and Presto Pesto Potatoes were so yummy, my hubby went back for seconds. I highly recommend this book!

Steven / Amazon customer: This excellent book is an enjoyable, entertaining read. It presents vital information for us all and is chock full of recipes by our nation's foremost food wizard, Tracy Childs. Her recipes are healthy, delicious, and practical for you to make for yourself and your loved ones. Even if you're not a "foodie," this book hits the spot! We're so fortunate she shares her gift. Spread the word, America Goes Vegan! is a delight, worthy for you to savor and share.
