The stand-up comedian of his generation. Star of stage and screen. Tireless supporter of charity. Runner. Political campaigner. Fashion icon. Human. There is no one quite like Eddie Izzard. This is the story of how a boy who wanted to become a professional footballer and win the lead in Joseph and His Amazing Technicolour Dreamcoat found comedy.

In The Vegan Solution: Why the Vegan Diet Often Fails and How to Fix It, prolific author Matt Stone shares his pioneering research on the role of metabolic rate in health as applied to a vegan diet. In the book you'll learn about "The Frigid Fourteen" - fourteen metabolism-lowering mistakes that are frequently being committed in the vegan world. These simple, misguided mistakes are commonplace and extremely detrimental to the metabolic rate and all of the body's systems affected by it. Yet they are all simple to fix, returning the body back to proper function, oftentimes while remaining completely vegan.

Came across as anecdotal self styled guru advise like all the rest (while explicitly stating he isn't, pfft). I felt like I wasted my life listening at half way point and his intro section def alienating to many vegans I'd imagine.
