Publisher's Summary

Told by the man who kicked off the infamous lawsuit between Oprah and the cattlemen, Mad Cowboy is an impassioned account of the highly dangerous practices of the cattle and dairy industries.

Howard Lyman's testimony on The Oprah Winfrey Show revealed the deadly impact of the livestock industry on our well-being. It not only led to Oprah's declaration that she'd never eat a burger again; it sent shock waves through a concerned and vulnerable public.

A fourth-generation Montana rancher, Lyman investigated the use of chemicals in agriculture after developing a spinal tumor that nearly paralyzed him. Now a vegetarian, he blasts through the propaganda of beef and dairy interests - and the government agencies that protect them - to expose an animal-based diet as the primary cause of cancer, heart disease, and obesity in this country. He warns that the livestock industry is repeating the mistakes that led to mad cow disease in England while simultaneously causing serious damage to the environment.

Persuasive, straightforward, and full of the down-home good humor and optimism of a son of the soil, Mad Cowboy is both an inspirational story of personal transformation and a convincing call to action for a plant-based diet - for the good of the planet and the health of us all.

    "Good as expected without Lyman voicing it himself"

    Lyman in himself proves that if an "everyday" can make the connection and go vegan then any man can. He will be remembered as a pioneer of both the ethical and climate Vegan movements.

    "Mindboggling"
    Where does Mad Cowboy: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is one of the most amazing and influential books I have read to date.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mad Cowboy: Plain Truth from the Cattle Rancher Who Won't Eat Meat?

    Where he talks about when he decided to have empathy for the cows he had lived off of for decades. The leather couch part was really surprising and beautiful.


    What about Dave Wright’s performance did you like?

    He did a marvelous job of reading the book!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES!!! I was not able to but I read it very fast :)


    Any additional comments?

    I am so grateful to Howard and I so look forward to meeting him someday. I hope to bring him to my Spokane VegFest sometime :)

    "Interesting thoughts"

    An eye opening view on a controversial topic. The Mad cowboy makes excellent points and shares very poignant opinions on the meat industry and what it isn’t telling the consumer. My chief complaint about this book would be there are not enough sources sited in the facts stated by this book. The book sometimes seems written more by alarm and anger then a thoughtful argument ( although there is plenty of that as well). Most eaters of animal products will rebuke this book purely for insult they may feel. Either way if you are a person who eats animal products and read this book, perhaps it will inspire you to research on your own.

    "Boring"

    The book would have been very good but the narrator was intolerable, just droned on.

    I want to send this book to everyone. It's an amazing insight into our food and how we should respect ourselves and the environment in looking into the food that we eat and support with our wallets and taxes.

    "Crazy"

    You learn so much throughout this book and it's amazing how little I knew about the industry before hand. This, along with some documentaries, have me really rethinking my diet and beginning the vegan lifestyle. There needs to be something done in this world and it starts with us. Great job!
