Full disclosure: One of the authors, an online friend since 2007 at and elsewhere too, gave me a copy of the book. Also, I was interviewed as a participant for the book as it was being written.I recommend this book for all vegans, especially those who have shamed others or been shamed for anything other than optimal health, all those who believe in end of life planning, all feminists, all disability activists, all caregivers and those who need the help of caregivers, all those who fear illness [...]

Overall, a fantastic and first of its kind to address the many myths and false promises of a vegan diet. but from pro vegan authors who are well known in their fields. They call out the ableism, illness shaming, the fat shaming, and denial of death that thousands of vegans proselytize.I love how they write things that address how of course Christine Brinkley look "good"--- but it is not because of a vegan diet. They note that it is because she is wealthy as hell and can afford the money it takes [...]

Important book that all vegans should read. Most vegans think about death when we talk about animals who are killed for human desires. But most of us don't want to think about our own inevitable death. Sometimes we create this illusion that plant based diets protect us from all the illnesses but the reality is that even vegans can get ill and die prematurely. "Even Vegans Die" helps vegans to think about these issues, and offers lots of practical advise. This is much needed and much appreciated [...]

I'm the publisher of this book, and I thought I'd make a few observations. This book is something of a personal project for me, given the deaths of a couple of vegan acquaintances in the last few years who had not prepared psychologically or legally for their passing, with the result that their final legacy was compromised. Carol, Ginny, and Patti did a fantastic job not only in making sure that we vegans—who may think our diet provides us with immortality—know how to get our estates in orde [...]

Recommended as a primer to knowing what to do about making difficult decisions about life and death.

Uncomfortable but I'm glad to have read it. Although it's brief and businesslike, still the talk about companion animals mourning made me tear up. This will be a great resource to have on hand on that hopefully distant day when I or my partner need to confront serious illness or death.

This book accomplishes so much in a very approachable manner. It combats the idea that being vegan is equivalent to good health, as well as healthism itself and reminds the reader that veganism is a commitment to ethics around our use of animals. It talks about compassion and how to be supportive of someone struggling with illness and dying. It covers a lot of ground on how to be there for caregivers. This book is both practical and philosophical making it a surprisingly easy read for the subjec [...]

I especially liked the first part of this book and puts vegan diets in perspective. As a vegetarian, most of the time vegan, I especially appreciated the perspective of not having be perfect in your vegan living. Embracing even partial vegan living as honoring life in all forms and doing your part even if not perfect. I think the end could have been tightened up a little, TMI.

ExcellentAn excellent resource for vegans with considerations for chronic illness, care-giving, and preparing for death in a responsible manner and as a means of continuing one's compassion and care afterwards.

Not as much helpful information as I'd hoped, but still a decent read for thoughtful vegans/animal activists.

Even Vegans Die is a short and excellent read that many people- not only vegans- can benefit from. The book is part critique of many mainstream vegan movements' ableism and body shaming, part analysis of many humans' fears of and evasion of (inevitable) death, and part self-help book for vegans and others seeking to care for their loved ones and prepare for their own death. It is carefully written and centers kindness in its delivery.I am a vegan with multiple chronic health conditions who is on [...]
