Skinny Bastard: A Kick in the Ass for Real Men Who Want to Stop Being Fat and Start Getting Buff | [Rory Freedman, Kim Barnouin]

Skinny Bastard: A Kick in the Ass for Real Men Who Want to Stop Being Fat and Start Getting Buff

In Skinny Bastard the authors explain why the macho "meat and potatoes" diet is total crap - and a turn-off - and how to get buff on the right foods. Eating well shouldn't be a "girlie" thing, and the Skinny Bastards will whip any man into shape with their straight talk, sound guidance, and locker-room language. This is another in the wildly popular series of no-nonsense, tough-love guides to real health.

    "Crazy Bitch"

    I strongly suggest reading the "Skinny Bitch" page on Wikipedia before ordering this recording so you're prepared for what's coming. What's coming it a strong dose of conspiracy theories, vegan propaganda, and animal rights activism. All wrapped in a condescending attitude mixed with necessary profanity.

    Just a few quotes to give you the idea;

    "eggs are a hens menstrual cycle"

    "meat is the decomposing decaying rotting flesh of a dead animal ... no matter how you slice it it's still a putrefying corpse"

    "go suck your mother's tits" (likened to eating dairy)

    "get you head out of your ass (and) rock the dairy free"

    "Good-ish book, but better books elsewhere"

    The book definitely is about getting skinny, but even more it is about the vegan life. The book definitely challenged my thinking. Still, be warned that this book is more about protecting animals and vegan diet than about general health. My favorite books on "industry" and food are by Michael Pollan. Skinny Bastard tries to shock you into change. It probably works on some, but the approach turned me away. It seemed more drama than data.

    Michael Pollan's books are the kick-in-the-pants I needed - Omnivore's Dilemma and In Defense of Food should be read by many. So good.

    "not a bad book"

    not a bad a book but take everything with a grain of salt. I will admit that I FREAKED OUT with some of the subject matter but a someone else brought me back down to earth. I did learn a bit here and there but I really think one should look at this as a resource book and not a book of absolute truths (like I first did).

    Story
    "Eye opening and slightly disturbing."
    What made the experience of listening to Skinny Bastard the most enjoyable?

    As juvenile as it is, the cursing. Seriously, the un filtered "real world" expressions in the writing is what did it for me. In order for a lot of this content to hit home for me and to get to me to listen it had to sound like a friend telling me the information and on that front they nailed it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Skinny Bastard?

    It was very early on, but the information dump on Aspartame. Rocked my world...


    What three words best describe Hillary Huber’s performance?

    Real, Human, Clear.


    Any additional comments?

    There are a few moments where the book becomes list heavy, but they are short lived for the most part, and add extra value to info junkies.

    "not really impressed, too preachy"
    Would you try another book from Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin and/or Hillary Huber?

    No


    What could Rory Freedman and Kim Barnouin have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Kept the wonderful information but stop the judgements of other people who do no believe as they do, and stop preaching!


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    dissapoinment


    Any additional comments?

    don't tell me what to think, and judge me for my actions just because you don't agree, just give me the information you want me to have and let me make my own decisions of what to believe or change in my life.
