The Ultimate Vegan Guide: Compassionate Living Without Sacrifice

By Erik Marcus

I’ve made the first edition of my Ultimate Vegan Guide available for free reading right from this page, since I would hate to think that anyone interested in eating fewer animal products might be hindered by the cost of learning how to do it. Better yet, you can pick up the updated Kindle edition for just 99¢. And the updated print edition costs just $8.95.

Want even more detail about the meat industry, and greater motivation to move towards a vegan diet? Check out my previous book: Meat Market: Animals, Ethics, & Money.

If you like my books, you’ll almost certainly enjoy my daily blog. You can subscribe to my blog, email list, and podcast on this page. Now, with that preliminary information out of the way, the following links will offer you the unabridged text of the first edition of my Ultimate Vegan Guide. Enjoy!
