Freston (www.kathyfreston.com), author of several titles on cleansing, weight loss, conscious eating, and overall physical and spiritual wellness, here presents a treatise on adopting a vegan diet and lifestyle. Less a guidebook or cookbook than a testament to the benefits of being a vegan-e. g., weight loss, improving the planet, achieving emotional balance, and saving animals' lives-the book includes anecdotes from people who have benefited from the switch as well as extensive excerpts from an interview Freston conducted with fellow author/wellness expert Dean Ornish, M.D. (founder & president, Preventive Medicine Research Inst.). Audie Award nominee Karen White delivers an excellent reading of the material, and the production quality of this audio is high.
But while the text is informative, it sounds like an infomercial or extended Oprah or Ellen segment-both shows on which the author has appeared-and the lengthy interview portions detract from the narrative flow. Most likely to appeal to fans of Freston and those new to the vegan lifestyle, who will find much of interest here.
