Back in June of last year, I shared news about my upcoming book Never Too Late to Go Vegan. I’m happy and excited to announce that the book is finished and shipping from booksellers in the next few weeks.
My co-authors are Patti Breitman, a former literary agent and current vegan activist and educator, and Carol Adams, who you probably know from her groundbreaking work The Sexual Politics of Meat. Patti and Carol invited me to write this book with them and I’m so grateful to them for bringing me on to the project. And, I’m really happy with how our book has turned out.
Amazon has been slow to get the “look inside” feature activated for this book, so I want to share some the table of contents and some text from the preface.

From the preface:
“We wrote this book to reassure you, bust your notions of what aging looks like, show you how to prepare scrumptious food, and help you rediscover one of the most precious, life-affirming parts of yourself.
We hope it will be a successful introduction to a lifestyle that brings you renewed energy, better health, a new sense of purpose, and a new experience of power to affect change. That is what it has done for us and for countless others who choose a vegan way of life.
According to popular folklore, wisdom comes with age. What could be wiser than choosing compassion, vibrant health, and a vast, delicious cuisine to be the guiding principles in our life?”
