Wow. That's nothing short of a narcissistic personality disorder I guess...

Robert obviously has done a good thing getting veganism out there but unfortunately people think he's what other vegan body builders look like and the truth is him and lean and green are tiny compared to heaps of other vagan body builders.

So, it's a book on veganism and weight training, written by someone who is a VF member, but is not on the veganfitness strength table. Hmmm...

I'm pretty sure "Keegan" on the table is Cheeke. Rumour has it that if you pass him on the table YOU get to tell HIM to have an "awesome day". How's that for incentive, huh?

Well, given that Robert is NOT a strength athlete and instead trains for mass, definition, etc, in order to look good on stage sort of makes strength tables inconsequential ;)

I preordered his book and I look forward to reading it!

To let you know, this last weekend he paid to fly himself out to my town in order to help raise money for the local farm animal sanctuary I volunteer at by speaking at our vegan Thanksgiving dinner. He not only provided a draw for people, he advocated for veganism and for the sanctuary to a crowd of mostly meat-eaters (many vegans bring friends and family to this event and meaties soon outnumber the vegans), and he donated TONS of vegan items for the silent auction! He never asked for a dime and was wonderful to have out. He even drew in a local television station to the dinner and we were on the air that night and it was all about healthy, tasty vegan food that we served. If his one flaw is that he promotes himself (and thus promotes veganism in the process), then I feel it is no big deal! If you don't like him, fine, don't get or read his book and start promoting all those other vegan bodybuilders!

Hope to get him back for his book signing tour! :D

No doubt Robert does a load of good things promoting veganism :D . Nevertheless, I find the style of constant selfpromotion he utilizies quite annoying. Still looking forward to the book :) .

for me who is not interested really in the sport of bodybuilding it's a decent read.

it was nice that he advertised this forum, and other vegan sites, numerous times throughout the book

I bought Robert's book and I think it's awesome! He sent me some Vega samples too :o Robert Cheeke is such an inspiration to me and so many. I'm sure there are books with more detailed writings on bodybuilding exercises but this book covers a balance of topics; diet, inspiration, training, business. We need more inspiring figures like Robert.

The book is partly an introduction to veganism, part nutrition guide, part training guide, part introduction to the sport of bodybuilding, and part introduction to activism - but most of all I found it to be something to really motivate you and aim for your goals, sort your life out, and cut away things that hold you back. It covers various things, so it's not just pages of exercises and technique like Arnie's encyclopedia or anything like that - he writes in a way that assumes you can already get that information from anywhere else. It's more about focusing your lifestyle and getting mentally prepared, as well as having the correct information. Rob definitely is not shy to also be positive about himself and his achievements! But he also references other people and their successes too, and definitely wants other people to get noticed as vegan bodybuilders / fit vegans.
