"Tell that hot girl in your yoga class that you're making sweet and sour tofu balls over quinoa (the recipe is later in the book). She'll be doing some downward dog for ya later that night, homie" (p 199).

Hysterical, straightforward, factual, and oh so true, this book is a true gem! Written for dudes for sure, this guide to vegan living delivers a swift kick in the butt to men who think eating vegan is for pussies. His whole point is that polluting the environment, eating an innocent animal that...more

"Meat is for Pussies" is John Joseph of the Cro-Mags' take on the merits of vegetarianism. After reading his autobiography and learning all of the crazy and powerful stories of his life, I felt like I knew another book from him would be, at the very least, entertaining.

One thing confused me about this book - I had a really hard time figuring out who exactly his intended audience was when he wrote this - and more often than not I thought to myself "I really hope it isn't me!"

I read books very slow unfortunately, I read meat is for pussies during my 1 hour break between classes, I love john Joseph and I wanted to become vegan. This book def.helped big time. and he's not using pussy to disgrace women.

I highly recommend this book to anyone that cares what they put in their body. John Joseph is spot on, love him. I know some guys that think its manly to eat meat and they do it almost because of peer pressure. That's ridiculous. They all need to read this book and tough up.

Great book by the frontman from Cro-Mags, and there is a lot more info in here than just why you shouln't be eating meat. A good read for men and women.
