Being macrobiotic for over 30 years (but not always perfect) I like the way Lyman writes. I appreciate his difficult journey from cattle rancher to vegetarian and the very honest way he describes it. Yes, I already know about seitan & tofu, and this book isn't as controversial as I had hoped. But I walk away thinking that I'd really like to meet this guy. This is a remarkable perspective.
And so what if portions of his book come off as an introduction to vegetarianism? Isn't that what we want? A new way to reach more people? I wonder if these self proclaimed experts remember the way they oh'd and awed over their first introduction to dietary revolution. I do. And I see Mad Cowboy reaching more people in the same way.
I think I'll read more of his books.
I was already considering cutting out meat and dairy form my diet, but I wanted to educate myself first, before I made any huge changes. I loved this book, especially coming form a man who was in the meat and dairy industry, for most of his life. I tend to believe Howard more so, than just some guy who heard it form another guy.
The shocking truth will set you free. Pick this book, and share it with a friend.
I would suggest this book to people who think veganism, healthy eating and loving the environment is "hippie woo-hoo bulls***". Mr. Lyman appears to definitely be on the other end of the hippie spectrum, however shares the same vision of a healthy planet and people.
