Review:

Vegetarianism is not merely a healthier, more eco-friendly, more humane way to live. According to Victor Parachin, it's a guaranteed conversation starter (reason #11); it makes it easier to control weight (#31); it teaches you to identify adzuki, fava, mung, and numerous other types of beans (#56); it prevents constipation (#171); and it can save you thousands of dollars a year in food costs (#346). Peppered throughout are quotes from vegetarians ranging from Paul McCartney ("Eating bits of [animals] makes no sense") to Immanuel Kant ("We can judge the heart of man by his treatment of animals"), along with Albert Einstein, Isaac Bashevis Singer, Plutarch, and Albert Schweitzer. 365 Good Reasons to Be a Vegetarian is fun to read, even for nonvegetarians, and sure to be inspirational for those who've chosen the meatless path through life.
