I wouldn't based on the title but I've tried a couple of his other cookbooks, I didn't like them, gave them away.

I have all of his 30-Minute cookbooks except the soup one, and I like them quite a bit. But I don't need a cookbook about healing.

I bought this book recently, but haven't had a chance to try any recipes. As the title indicates, this is aimed at the 'whole food plant based' reader. There are a lot of interviews and essays by plant based doctors (and a brief bit of woo about cleansing). Disappointingly, I haven't seen any reference to ethical veganism. When I looked at recipe titles there were plenty that sounded appealing enough to buy it.

30 Minute taste of Europe is the only one of his I kept when I had my enormous cookbook purge of last year. I like it, but even if he were my favourite cookbook author ever I wouldn't buy a book with that title.

Same, and I like all of the 30-min vegan ones. Esp. the Europe one--I've made a bunch of things from it I like.

Sorry to judge a book by it's cover but...well the name is on the cover.

I am OK w/the Whole Foods Plant Based term. If it gets more people to not eat animals (and improve their health), then why not? The WFPB term refers to eating foods - real foods- and not vegan junk food.

The healing term is sort of "dramatic" but I am willing to check his book out. I liked his Asian cookbook .

I might try the European one since more than a few liked it but I would never buy a cookbook with "healing" in the title. Food is not medicine; you can eat all the "right" foods and still deal with a chronic illness.

Also, from the Amazon blurb "With practical tips for plant-based living, 200 simple whole-food recipes, health-supportive cleanses, menu plans, and more, Healing the Vegan Way helps you maximize benefits for both body and mind." The word cleanse in anything that does not involve soap is a warning sign. There is also apparently a chapter on the magic of raw foods.

The recipes may be awesome but there is a suggestion of much woo from the reviews.

Count me as another one whom the title and concept turn off.

Agree with you, LFL. While it makes me happy that someone might try plant-based eating as a path to wellness, I'm torn that this kind of title reinforces the sickly vegan stereotype.

I'm confused. How does it reinforce the sickly vegan stereotype, when it describes veganism as healing? I do think food can either contribute to or help with a lot of illnesses, and I think it's great that there is more and more recognition that veganism is good for you.

(I don't have this book, so have no opinion about the contents, just responding to the discussion about the title.)

I think that some people might interpret the title as meaning that vegans need healing, i.e., because of veganism, they're not well. In fact, I'm fairly certain my brothers would read it this way.
