This is a true resource for anyone interested in how specific components of food (not just in a vegan diet) affect the body. This book doesn't just tell you how to make a balanced vegan meal, but why its important and how to enhance your diet to suit your body's unique needs. Chapters range from fertility, mental health, cancer, and aging. If you read the entire book you'll find that some information is recurring, not because it is redundant but because it is important. Also, if you only read the chapters that you are interested in then you might not see the same information as much. There are some unique recipes, but if you eat like you've been educated (and you will be educated if you read the entire book), then you wont need to depend on other people's recipes to get the nutrition you need.

This is very, very thorough. Allocate a good amount of time to take in all the useful info in this book. I really appreciated the info on vegan athletes as well as the section on chronic pain. Those who are overweight will delight in a chapter dedicated to the challenges of keeping weight off, and the benefits of even minor weight loss.
I understand that free glutamates (MSG) is naturally occurring in some foods, so I'm not convinced of her arguments on this topic (1 page) for people with migraines and fibro, but I tend to avoid it being added to my foods, except when eating at vegan Asian restaurants (not that there are many of those around where I live!).
Well referenced book, with resources for further information and recipes near the end.
