"Hodgman (Beat This, Beat That) tackles with humor the challenge of making food without animal products. The text is filled with a chatty sass that is the author's trademark ... Unlike other vegan cookbooks that start with the rationales for going vegan, Hodgman's explanations are saved, like a punch line, for the end and are summed up with 'right vs. wrong period.'" –Library Journal
"If you like reading cookbooks for more than the recipes, you need to read Ann Hodgman, one of the few cookbook writers whose introductions (we call them headnotes) and even recipe names regularly make me chuckle, if not guffaw. Her latest book, “Vegan Food for the Rest of Us” is no exception, except now, as you can tell by that title, Hodgman, 60, is bringing her matter-of-fact sense of humor to the topic of vegan cooking, something she has been trying to master since becoming vegetarian in 2009."
Joe Yonan, Food and Dining Editor, The Washington Post
"In her newest cookbook, Hodgman convinces naysayers and skeptics that veganism doesn't have to be pretentious."- Publishers Weekly
