Editorial Reviews

Review

"In a witty but candid and no-nonsense language, Howard Lyman speaks a truth about health that needs telling. Few messages are more important for our times and almost no one has the personally compelling experiences that make Lyman's telling of the story so unique and so persuasive. This is a fun but serious book to read. Try it and I think you'll like it!"
-- T. Colin Campbell, PhD., Jacob Gould Schuman Professor Emeritus of Nutritional Biochemistry, Cornell University

"Reading No More Bull is an amazing experience. It is a wonder how a book can be such a pleasure to read, so entertaining and enjoyable, and yet carry such a profoundly important message. If you read this book, several things will happen. There will be more health in your life. There will be more joy in your life. And you will be playing a part in the greater healing our troubled world so greatly needs."
-- John Robbins, author of Diet for a New America

The Mad Cowboy rides again! The long-awaited continuation of his rants and raves on veganism and politics comes through as madcap as ever but with a smart edge that promises to leave a trail of vegan converts. We all know someone who went vegetarian after reading Diet for a New America, and Howard Lyman is threatening to become the next John Robbins, with an endearing smile and naughty wink. No More Bull is a Howard Lyman hit.

The infamous cattle rancher-turned-vegan has a no-holds-barred writing style that occasionally smacks of his mischievous speaking style. I envy his matter-of-fact manner and I'd hate to find myself debating him, but I count on him to tell it to me straight. As a fan familiar with his speaking style, I often hear his co-writers in the pages of No More Bull, as if two others are sitting with Howard and me over coffee discussing veganism. Their writing styles gel together well.

Lyman doesn't mince words when he addresses meat-eaters in the chapter "Message for My Meat-Eating Friends":

"To state the obvious: vegetarians live longer than meat eaters simply and solely because we do not consume the filthy, fatty, disease-ridden, decaying flesh of animals. (Forgive me for being so blunt, but there is no such thing as a clean, lean form of meat, and no other honest way to describe meat - even if you buy it "organic," or blessed by rabbis, or hunt it down yourself.) Vegans live longer still because we avoid as well the fatty, hormone-rich, cholesterol-ridden by-products of the lactation of other major mammals."

Simple as that, my friends.

His call to arms comes in the next chapter - "Message for My Fellow Vegetarians and Vegans.

Thanks, Howard. You did it again. I gave this book 5 stars, but that's the average of 6 and 4. I give the actual written part of the book 6 stars and the recipe section 4. I own Mad Cowboy and expected this to be a bit of a rehash. To my pleasant surprise, "No More Bull!" is up-to-date, eminently readable and a hard book to put down. Howard writes like he's a trusted, old friend sitting on the front porch on a summer's evening. But don't be fooled, this man is no dummy. He's in the unique position of having been on the other side of the fence, too. He knows exactly what he's talking about. His research is impeccable and his novel and savvy way of interpreting the facts will have you wondering why others can't see these obvious truths. This is a subject near and dear to Mr. Lyman's heart, but he and his writing associate could make a book on composting a spellbinder. If you're a pots-and-pans alchemist, you'll enjoy the recipe section. Howard has enlisted contributions from some of the heaviest hitters in the vegan culinary world. I didn't find the recipe section too enthralling since I invent my own, admittedly simple, vegan creations. One of these days I'll tackle one of those recipes, but for now I'm going to re-read this excellent book. It's well-written and, in spite of the gravity of the subject material, contains some hearty, unexpected belly-laughs.

I was hesistant to buy yet another book on the benefits of a vegan

diet. John Robbins already convinced me, over 10 years ago. But to know Howard is to love Howard because we know he's paying attention to what's going on in the world and wants nothing more than to share some really important and timely information with us -- for us. Anyway, I was really shocked at how much I didn't know about the state of affairs of the meat industry, and, considering the subject, I can hardly believe Howard got the message across with so much love and humor! I most definitely did not expect this book to so shockingly expose the stark reality of the biggest and grossest cover-up mankind has ever inflicted on fellow sentient beings of all sizes and shapes, human and animal. This book truly covers every angle, puts every piece of the grand jigsaw puzzle in place, and all while reminding us that it's not too late to open our eyes, proudly become vegan, and restore the

health of our beautiful planet and all its marvelous creatures,

including ourselves! What could possibly be more important, especially when us baby boomers are, yikes, getting up there in years and may need, yikes, healthcare???? I want to buy this book for everyone I know -- vegan and nonvegan! If your friends and family are not listening to you anymore about your crazy diet, pay them to read this book -- do whatever it takes!

Thank you again, Howard -- and Glen and Joanna Merzer -- for not

stopping to tell the truth until we all really get it!

This book faces all the recent fad diets that became very popular very fast since 2000. Going through one by one the reader understand why Veganism is eventually the best diet for the human body, for the human mind and for the planet.

This book is so updated in relation to the current events and trends of the diet world in particular and the environment protection in general.

As an amid Vegan I recommend this book to any Vegetarian, Vegan or anyone who is on this path. It will give one more inspiration and encouragement like the first one -' Mad Cowboy' did.

Glen is an amazing write and puts ideas and thoughts in writing at the most pleasant way possible.
