Contrary to popular belief, it is not anti-vegetarian. Anti-vegan, yes, in a way. The author maintains that some animal fat is necessary for the proper absorption of nutrients. On the other hand, if you look at the recipes, there are many very nutritious dishes and much sensible eating advice that even the hard core vegans would do well to consider looking it over. And in case you're wondering, I haven't eaten meat in over 30 years. You don't have to agree with everything a book says to learn something useful.
Otherwise the book is a little dated and could do with a revised edition. The author makes a very silly suggestion on how to dry salad leaves (put them in your washer on spin cycle? has she never heard of a salad spinner?).
