Revenge of the Vegetarian by Jim Tilberry
I was interested in reading this book due to the fact that it states that it is humorous:) I am actually not a vegetarian, nor do I plan on being one, (unless we can have a vegetarian type who eats bacon and steak!) But, I have a couple friends who are vegetarian, and this was definitely going to be something I thought I could steal a few jokes from:)
The cover is hilarious enough, a tofu in a heart tattoo? LOL! The back cover is just as funny with all of the review excerpts on. Even the author's girlfriend has a review on the back! So does the author's mom, and stepbrother and a neighbor and a teacher from the 8th grade. Oh and Jim Tilberry's research assistant, he was super happy that the author mentioned him! (I figured i would try and make him happy too)
Anyway, the intro is funny, very witty and definitely makes the book sound interesting. Jim Tilberry doesn't wait, he just dives right in and starts with some very clever jokes! I am truly a fan of anybody who can in a sense, make fun of themselves! This world would be a much better place if more would do this!
On top of this book being filled with jokes and laughs, it actually does have depth to it, and some actual information, kind of:) My favorite part was, The Veggie Diary, written by a neighbor that the author persuaded to give up meat and become a vegetarian... he did quite well, just a couple White Castle stops and a bacon breakfast lol!!
I do in fact feel much more intelligent after reading this book, especially my horoscope! I learned that my birth bean is Pinto, and that my ruling vegetables are Brussels Sprouts!
I recommend this book for all vegetarians, new or old, no matter the type, and even meat eaters, like me! It makes a unique gift for friends or relatives, or for that day that your pre teens find out what bacon is!!
This book is available for purchase on Amazon!
