MAD COWBOY: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat - Howard F. Lyman, Glen Merzer Though I may not have the willpower to give up milk, fish, cheese and ice cream (say it isn't so!) cold-turkey I am definitely going to aim towards a bean, grain, fruit & veggie diet and am starting to research vegetarian & vegan lifestyles. This book is a real eye opener and I'm very glad I had the chance to read it.

The scariest part about this book for me was the possible US epidemic of Mad Cow and the fact that this book made so much sense that I want to scream out these facts to the world. Lyman, a former cattle rancher turned vegan activist, goes into graphic detail about practices kept well hidden from the unsuspecting public. It's a tough read but an important one.
