No other news a the moment, but here are some great ways to make sure you always catch the latest news as it breaks.
I want to share some of the feedback I've been getting about my book because it is inspiring on many levels. I found these comments on Facebook, Twitter, or in short notes emailed to me. I'm keeping it all anonymous. I'm not posting these things to feed my ego or to pat myself on the back....I worked insanely hard on this book to make it a powerful tool that would change lives, therefore save lives by inspiring people to think differently.
My book has been out for one month, and these are some genuine and sincere comments I found posted on my Facebook page, on Twitter or posted randomly on the internet about my book. I didn't ask for testimonials, I wanted people to come forward and write authentically if they were moved to do so, and many have.
Here are some of those findings.
"We just received your book, and love it. It is very thorough, and we found it inspiring, motivational, and much more than expected. We have been vegan for five years and try to be athletic and keep fit. Your book will be our top book. Thanks so much for it.
It was worth the wait, and thank you for signing it, makes it more personal."
"Thanks, Robert! I appreciate the personal message inside, too! You are not only an inspiration in what you have achieved, but a total class guy.
Absolutely love the book. Rich with info and perfect length. Great personal content about yourself and somewhat humble beginnings.
I was so inspired that I signed up today at a nearby gym. Stoked to hit the weights ASAP (but smartly, too).
Thanks again. Keep it up."
"I got my book today and can't wait to start reading it tonight! : ) : ) I read a few pages and am super pumped already!"
"I got mine today!!! Yay...thank you. It looks amazing and I can't wait to read it. Congratulations for accomplishing a dream and sharing it with us!!"
"Awesome, I got my book yesterday. So far it is a great read. Every page has more great advice to live a great life."
"My copies arrived! Just in time!!! I have a feeling this book will be my bible for the next several years."
"The book rocks, brother! I should have it finished by tonight. It is crazy informative and has inspired me to rededicate myself to being more hardcore about veganism and fitness. Keep pumping!"
"I got mine yesterday. Worth the wait. Already posted this in a different place and you already responded, Robert! You rocked when I first met you on here and you still rock -- even more so now. This world needs more people like you."
"I just got mine this week and have started reading.....easy to read..well written. I have about 30 books on nutrition, exercise and bodybuilding so not a beginner in that sense but I am definitely picking up tips and things from this book."
"LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the book. I will definitely suggest to my vegan groups up here."
"About 27 pages into your book, makes me step back and look at what I can do to make this life better for me and those around me."
"Man, this thing ROCKS!!! I'm 2/3 through and taking my time with every page. The stuff is magic. Got me crazy inspired today. Bought a ton of vegan goodness to get back on the right track and had my best workout in months! What did it for me was talking about eating for purpose rather than palate & being a more influential ambassador just by looking better. Thanks for the push, bro!"
"Your book is flying off the shelves, Robert - I think I may have needed to order more! Haven't seen any book sell this well since the day Veganomicon came out. Great work!"
"I have the book in front of me and it's already inspired me! I don't plan on body building but "building my body" so that I am stronger and healthier (and eventually can run a marathon - my dream!) and it looks very helpful already :)"
"There is SO MUCH in there - I just read the chapter "Where Do You Get Your Protein?". Great responses in there Robert. I'll be using them in the future :)"
"You rock! Your book takes away any excuses for not working out.."
"OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I GOT YOUR AMAAAAAAAAAAAAAZING BOOK IN THE MAIL TODAY!!!!!!!!!!!!! JUST IN TIME FOR "VEGAN DRINKS" IN SAN FRANCISCO WHERE I TALKED IT UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

THE PHOTOS ARE GREAT, TOO!!!!! GREAT WAY TO EDUCATE AND RESPECT THE ANIMALS, SIMULTANEOUSLY!!!!!!!! YES, I'M SHOUTING, CUZ I'M SO HAPPY ABOUT THIS BOOK!!!!!!!"
"I can only imagine that you're going to get a LOT more positive feedback as people get through your book. It's so well done and so motivating, I don't see how you could get anything but praise for it :) I'm so glad to hear that things are starting off well enough, and I look forward to seeing more as you get flooded with people who write to say how much they love it!"
"Really enjoying it Robert and I can tell your heart is in it 110%, like everything you do. Congrats on all your book success - very deserved!"
"I am so loving your book!! Thanks also for signing it and the Vega goodies! I can really tell a difference in my workouts since starting the products! Cheers!"
"Hello Robert!!!! It seems like just a couple of days ago you were saying you were shipping the books! They arrived late this afternoon! Thank you! And two were out the door again within about an hour! I've got one put aside to take to the Society lunch on Sunday for a lass who not only does bodybuilding but makes costumes for people too. Love the autographs!! And so will the recipients! Robert, it has been an absolute pleasure dealing with you. Thank you for that."
"We received your book yesterday, yayyyyy!!!"
Just wanted to say thanks for the Vega goodies, the card, and for signing all of the copies! Wowee, we weren't expecting that!
I took home a copy and started reading it last night! Very well done! And Congrats to you!!
This will be a great addition to our shop!"
"If I may say so...I'm not the least bit surprised (about the success of your book). It was almost 10 years ago when Melanie and I heard about this young, vegan body builder. We thought, "What a great inspiration for young vegans and vegetarians. I wonder if he'll let one of the kids interview him." And you did. You jumped on it. You were ready to share info, inspiration, and just be available to the kids. That put you on the top of my list. Well earned, well deserved and well done. Keep up the great work!"
"My book arrived today, WOOOHOOO!!!!!!!!!!!! To say that it is inspiring would be the understatement of the century!!! Now get your vegan ass over to England, dammit!
YOU DA MAN, ROBERT!!!"
