'Revenge of the Vegetarian' looks at the lighter side of vegetarianism

While most books on vegetarianism can be very serious and even sad, Revenge of the Vegetarian by Jim Tilberry offers a new viewpoint for vegetarians and vegans looking for a laugh.

I recently read Revenge of the Vegetarian, and I loved it. The book is chock-full of entertaining tidbits such as "interviews" with dead vegetarians ("A human being in reality is just a human bean," 'says' Socrates), ways to give up meat (including hypnosis and "the meat patch"), how to remove meat from everyday language (turning "meat of the matter" into "tofu of the topic"), and more.

"I attempted to write a humorous book which would still touch on many of the issues that are relevant to vegetarians," says Jim Tilberry. "But I wrote the book in a completely tongue-in-cheek style."

Truly unique, wacky, and laugh-out-loud funny, Revenge of the Vegetarian is a lighter spin on the usual serious topics of vegetarianism.
