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.
