5-0 out of 5 stars Potential Guide for Discovering Yourself
I found this book in the lobby of my apartment in San Jose in 2001 shortly before my dad died..I was overweight, had many health problems and knew I needed to make some changes..This book assisted me in moving towards a vegan diet and cutting down on calories and unhealthy foods...I love his disdain of Western Medicine unless one is injured or has structural damage..I don't agree that the macrobiotic diet is 100% the answer..A vegan organicwhole foods diet with occasional fish oil and fish probably is best..Also avoiding drugs, caffeine, sugar, processed foods, alcohol, etc etc makes a lot of sense.....Nice spiritual journeu described in full honesty..Dirk encourages the reader to go inside for the answers...I do question the fact that Kushi smoked/had cancer. that Dirk smokes cigars and that Kushi's wife/daughter died of cancer..An inspirational read with many holes, however.

2-0 out of 5 stars Irresponsible
I understood from this book, that Mr Benedict believes that smoking is hardly any threat to one's health as long as one gives up dairy products. I think he is fooling himself, and has been fooled by his macrobiotic diet guru's.

I sincerely hope that he only smokes when he is alone, or if there are only smokers around him.I am sure he would not want non-smokers nearby, who eat dairy, to get cancer from breathing in what he is breathing out.

I sold the book after only reading half of it - I do not appreciate someone trying to pull the wool over my eyes.

2-0 out of 5 stars An unconvincing tale
Dirk Benedict has written a most thoughtful and interesting book about his experiences with relationships, lifestyle, diet, and health, but as a prostate cancer survivor myself I felt let down by his claim that he overcame this disease by a macrobiotic diet alone. A careful reading will find that at no time did he have a biopsy to determine if he had prostate cancer or not, and other tests available today did not exist in 1975.
So how does he know he had cancer? Because he had sent a Polaroid photo of himself to an "Italian scientist" who from 6,000 miles away had divined from the photo's "aura" that he had a tumor and treatment was paramount. Yes, it's true that he had an enlarged prostate (presumably from a Digital Rectal Examination), painful urination, and he had blood in the urine, but these are also indicators for non-cancerous Benign Prostatic Hyperplasia (BPH, enlarged prostate) and/or inflammation and infection of the prostate (Prostatitis), as well as prostate cancer.
Whether he overcame a severe case of BPH and Prostatitis using a macrobiotic diet is interesting, but claiming to be cured of CANCER when he might have had no such thing is misleading at best. Unfortunately, other authors have taken this up and claim that Benedict "cured his prostate cancer" by a macrobiotic diet.

3-0 out of 5 stars interesting read
This book is interesting.Often crude and graphic.Could have done without the rough language.Good advice though and my husband is following much of it.Thanks

4-0 out of 5 stars Good read, good philosophy, but got to question it
The life of Dirk Benedict, the benefits of a macrobiotic diet, taking control of your own health instead of using pills, that's what this book is about.I loved the book, but if you're an A-Team or Battlestar Galactica fan, I'm not so certain you'd want to hear much about Benedict's advocation of a vegetarian diet & how he believes he beat cancer through it.

I am a practicing medical doctor, so hear me out on my opinion on his views on diet & cancer.I very much support much of what Benedict says--perhaps about 80-90% of it.He mentions going vegetarian, incorporating a macrobiotic diet & excercise saved his life in more ways than 1.Take into consideration that Benedict wrote this in a day & age when cutting down harmful fats, excercising & eating "whole" foods were seen as a harmful fad.It is understandable why he writes his opinions in a tone that is somewhat preaching & angry.Its actually quite revolutionary that he had these views in the 70s, since this seemed to only catch on in the 90s.

I also strongly support that people in general need to take control of their health through diet & excercise & not really on the doctor for wellness.Its unfortunate, but the pharmaceutical industry & managed care have created something I nickname "fast food medicine".They only want us to see patients for about 15 minutes, give them a pill & see the next one.They don't want us sitting with our patients & educating them about health.No, they will not outright claim this but all the financial incentives push us in this direction.In several places, I can only get paid for a 15 minute check.If I don't prescribe a med, I might not get reimbursed.Doctors are pushed to treat sickness, but not promote wellness.Those that promote wellness often are doing it at a loss of pay because they care.

Some of the approaches that Benedict did to treat his cancer without medication or surgery have now been validated by modern science to have a positive effect.Several meats today for example as a result of factory farming have several unwanted chemicals.E.g. cows are fed feed with tetracycline, which stays in the meat & ends up in our own system.Hormones in animal meats can possibly affect the prostate.Some nutrients in vegetarian products have now been identified to be healthy for the prostate that were not known in the 70s to have this effect.Reducing calories has been found to help treat cancer because it starves cancer cells.So, Benedict's approach to treating his own cancer which was seen as ludicrous back in the 70s-80s, now doesn't sound impossible with this knowledge that wasn't known then by western medicine.

However as a doctor, I really need to point out 3 parts of the book that I question & cannot advocate.I am not saying they're not true (I don't know), just saying that I could never reccomend them to a patient.I could never tell a patient with protstate cancer to simply & only use diet. Benedict also believes that someone who was a something of a spiritual health guru accurately diagnosed his cancer by simply seeing a polaroid photo of him, and this person had a skill at detecting illness because of the properties of a polaroid photo.Keeping the most open mind possible (and this is a stretch), perhaps this person did have these metaphysical powers.Maybe its miracle on the order of Lourdes, but if science accepted miracles simply on the word of another, we'd be accepting 100 mistakes for every real benefit.Besides, if this really worked, why didn't this person allow himself to be researched?I do need to add that Benedict did go to traditional western doctors who then reconfirmed that he did indeed have prostate cancer (another reviewer claims Benedict did not do this, I double checked, he did).Finally, the last point is yes, I agree that several doctors have a closed minded approach to eastern medicine, but there are several today that are more open minded & know perhaps even more than he does on this matter.Andrew Wiel, M.D. for example has used a scientific approach to study eastern medicine & has found much of it to work.
All in all did I enjoy the book?Yes, very much so.Just wanted to point out the above.Outside those portions, I very much loved this book & hope you will try it out.

4-0 out of 5 stars More Confessions from the Kamikaze Cowboy
For most of my life, I knew Dirk Benedict as the guy starring in two of the more prominent TV series of my youth - BATTLESTAR GALACTICA and THE A-TEAM. Like a lot of people, I have a tendency to associate the personality of an actor with that of the role(s) he plays, and I assumed DB was a cigar-chewing, featherheaded adrenaline-junkie interested mainly in chasing women. Two years ago, however, I bought his book CONFESSIONS OF A KAMIKAZE COWBOY, and I discovered that he is a cigar-chewing, deep-thinking adrenaline-junkie interested in changing the world...when he isn't chasing women.

Long story short, Benedict grew up in rural Montana on a diet of beef and...other kinds of beef. In later life, he suffered acute health problems, including prostatic cancer, which gradually chivvied him into a different way of eating, drinking and looking at the world. He's since become a kind of spokesperson for an alternative philosophy of life, and COWBOY is a sort-of Bible of that philosophy. Its central theme, however, is how the food choices we make effect not only our physical but our emotional and spiritual health as well. ("Someone," he wrote in its introduction. "Needs to do for brown rice and bancha tea what John Wayne did for red meat and whiskey.") AND THEN WE WENT FISHING is a related but very different type of book, in a way far more personal than COWBOY was. Like COWBOY, it has a clear-cut message garnered from autobiographical experience; unlike COWBOY it is not about changing the world. It is about changing oneself by letting go of pain, regret and grief and learning the lessons of one's own past experience. It's about, to paraphrase Poe (the singer, not the writer) "One more look at the ghost, before I make it leave."

FISHING is two books in one. In the first story, Dirk and his then-wife Toni are preparing for the at-home birth of their first child, a disaster-plagued affair which is half-comedy, half-nightmare: the midwife deserts them for a Chuck Norris benefit, the assistant is interested only in raiding the fridge and napping, the last-resort doctor is out of town, and an anonymous functionary at the nearest hospital (50 miles away) does his best to make matters worse. The second story takes place 25 years earlier, with Dirk an 18 year old kid who seemingly has it all: good looks, athletic talent, hot girlfriend, bright future. Unforunately, he also has crippling emotional pain, brought on by the death of his father at the hands of his brother following a nasty domestic argument. The shooting, which Dirk witnessed, effected him in many different ways, but most deeply by giving him a crippling fear of fatherhood. And as he comes closer to becoming a father himself, he realizes just how effectively he has deferred the pain of his dad's death, and how dangerous that deferrment will be if he doesn't discover the lesson buried under his emotional denials. The birth of his son proves to be the opportunity he has long awaited: the chance to lay his father's ghost to rest, and to shed the tears he held back for a quarter of a century.

AND THEN WE WENT FISHING is not the book KAMIKAZE COWBOY was, but it was not meant to be. It is an intensely personal story of choices and consequences -
"fate, fatherhood, and forgiveness" - mingled with wit, sarcasm and irony (the fact that medical-establishment-hating Benedict had to deliver his kid via a regular doctor is a subject he approaches with no small amount of chagrin). Those looking for a sequel to COWBOY, or a memior about DB's acting career, will be disappointed, but those looking for inspiration will find their money well spent.

5-0 out of 5 stars A Spiritual Classic - very grounding
Dirk Benedict represented the unattainable for me in the 70s: incredibly handsome, famous, and wealthy. What could we possibly have in common? Nothing, I thought until I read "Confessions of a Kamikazi Cowboy". As a teen and young adult in the 70s, I was also on a spiritual quest and was a vegetarian for three years. But the worlds of my competitive career and rodeoing hobby were not supportive. After a doctor recommended I eat the traditional diet after setting my broken leg from a skiing accident, I gave it up.Not coincidentally, my spiritual quest was also pretty much on hold for decades.After retiring, I began moving towards a vegan diet again.Then I read about Dirk's spiritual quest and his incredible bravery for standing fast to his ideals despite the enormous pressure from the studios and networks who mainly survive from pharma and agribusiness support.Dirk, of course, is a famous celebrity, but he would probably be a superstar if not for his determination to speak and write the truth. In 200 years, he will be more famous as a philosopher.His depiction of a person taking back the responsibility for one's health that could have been hijacked by the AMA left me breathless. His work has insprired me as a nursing student to work as a nurse in the lower paid natural healing arts as a coach. Thanks Dirk, for lighting the path.

3-0 out of 5 stars Kamikaze Cowboy diet/ lifestyle change
Interesting to read the story of a successful diet that defeated Cancer.
I really liked the idea and the proof that can be found with further research.
I don't know that I can become a vegan, but eating better is the 1st step.
A cowboy becomes an Actor, his struggle, his choice, to live better.

5-0 out of 5 stars From the medical profession to the reality of diet and lifestyle
I haven't read this book cover to cover yet; I have tons of reading to do daily so I try to get to sections of it as time permits.Since I've been dealing with my aging prostate for about 10 years now, I've tried my best to educate myself about this little organ buried in the male anatomy that is as important as pure gold bullion.This book is at the opposite end of the spectrum in terms of it's "credibility".I don't mean that in a bad way; to the contrary, it's a real time account of one man's struggle with prostate cancer and his reality-based approach toward conquering it.Again, I've still got a long way to go before I get through it all, but I'm taking my time and slowly changing my lifestyle and diet in accordance with the suggestions and recommendations made by this man (and many others out there who have had similar experiences).If I have the opportunity, I'll update my review later.Aloha, jp

3-0 out of 5 stars Dirk's Macrobiotic Journey
I'm writing this review for anybody thinking of buying this book. First and foremost what you should know is that this book is not a standard autobiography, it does not tell Dirk Benedict's full life story, it is only part autobiography. Dirk is documenting his journey into macrobiotics, an oriental-based diet and lifestyle developed by Japanese-American George Ohsawa and his students. Dirk begins the story with his first introduction to the term and diet by a fellow actor in 1971, it would take several such exposures before he would decide to embrace the diet. Key to making him a convert is his relationship with silent-screen actress Gloria Swanson, and her husband, William Dufty, author of 'Sugar Blues'. But once Dirk embraces the diet and philosophy, he doesn't look back, regardless of the consequences. He describes several "detoxification" episodes, even several years into his diet, that tested his resolve. His Hollywood doctors tell him the diet is making him sick, but he sees the "detox" episodes as manifestations of cleansing what he had built up in him during is animal-food eating days. Finally, he faces the ulimate battle. He is diagnosed with prostate cancer. But instead of fearing the diagnosis, throwing away his macrobiotic cookbook and following his doctor's standard remedy of surgery and chemotherapy. Dirk decides macrobiotics is the answer. He meets up with the leading authority on macrobiotics in the U.S., Michio Kushi, who loans him a secluded cabin, where he can retreat to in his attempts to cure himself using macrobiotics alone. Dirk's approach is to starve the cancer tumor by starving himself, thru following a strict macrobiotic diet. Three months later, he's twenty-three pounds lighter and according to himself, and Michio Kushi, cancer-free. And he remains so for eight years, after which the cancer returns.

I learned alot about Dirk reading this book. I never imagined the handsome lady-killer from Battlestar Galactica was so strongly opinionated, that he never wanted to be a star, suffered from health problems such as hair loss, acne, and impotence, that lived in poverty while acting in high profile shows, and that he lost his father at an early age, etc. I guess we imagine Hollywood movie and television stars to have perfect lives and exponential success. This is certainly not Dirk's view, as he reminds us again and again throughout. Even before his major success on shows like Battlestar Galactica, and The A-Team, he was well aware of this. The greater the heights you reach, the bigger the fall you experience, yin follows yang, it is a universal law of the universe.

I had two reasons for buying this book, one i've been transitioning into a macrobiotic diet myself and wanted the read the journey of someone who had followed a similar path. Two, i've heard about some of the health claims made by those who have adopted a macrobiotic diet, that it cures cancer, or other diseases. Dirk is one of the more high profile members of the macrobiotic community to make such a claim, so i wanted to read his story.

5-0 out of 5 stars Great read, deeply meaningul, well written
I;ve read this book three times now... each time i get something new from it. For anyone looking to take back their life from chronic health issues or cancer, there is much to draw on here for inspiration. Unlike most in Hollywood, Benedict, no doubt influenced by his Father, is an independent thinker who argues eloquently for a deeper understanding of natural law and how we can align ourselves with it using traditional Asian medicine as a compass.

This book has something for everyone. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars A revealing look at life, death and family
In Dirk Benedict's second autobiographical work, he juxtaposes two key events in his life: the violent death of his father when he was just eighteen, and the birth of his first son twenty-five years later. The life-and-death contrast could have been a cheap cliche, and Benedict's writing sometimes comes across amateurish in how he awkwardly weaves the two stories together. But it is a powerful story to be told, and I felt a great deal more understanding for Dirk and his strong personal beliefs after reading this work--even if I still find much I disagree with about him on certain issues of gender relationships and roles.

Dirk and his wife Toni had planned on an "all-natural" home birth for their child, with only the assistance of a mid-wife. But things begin to go wrong quickly as the mid-wife has other plans delaying her involvement as labor begins, and the back-up help she summons in her absence is of little to no help at all. As Dirk tries to help his wife--mostly on his own--through a long, slow delivery, he reflects back on his youth and the death of his father which has haunted him for decades. The exact details of his father's demise are not revealed until the climactic ending, but much is foreshadowed and hinted at as he talks about his fractured family.

I could relate to the difficulty Dirk faced in such a familial situation, feeling a closeness to his father while his siblings were more bonded to their mother. Being stuck in the tug-of-war for his affection and loyalties in the midst of his parents' divorce, he tries to help his mother even while he does not want to give up striving for his father's approval and love. These events seem to have been a large part of what has shaped Dirk's beliefs and relationships for most of his life, for good or bad, and he talks of several failed and early romances from his high school and college years, as well as sporting events where he tried but didn't manage to meet his goals.

Where the book stumbles a bit is when Benedict spends too much time away from the "action" (both current and past) to ramble on about his distrust of the modern world, the medical profession, and the sexual revolution. There's a seeming contradiction to some of it, as he appears to believe the birth control pill and the sexual freedom it brought about was a BAD thing for women--yet at the same time he describes the traumatic stress an early Catholic girlfriend went through because of the strict religious doctrines of her family and a pregnancy scare. He praises Toni and women in general for their physical and mental strength, yet at times he can be quite disparaging of them as well--such as when he berates their mid-wife for talking about men in sexual ways or expressing any interests besides motherhood and traditional roles.

Still, the book is an easy and engaging read. I finished it in two days and probably would have finished it in one if I'd had the time. It's a brave and honest look into the author's life and beliefs, like them or not. I would recommend it to fans of the actor's work looking to learn more about him, as well as to anyone who has gone through a difficult childhood and the struggles to accept it--and move past it.

5-0 out of 5 stars A SHARING OF EXPERIENCE
This second book by Dirk Benedict touches on some deeply personal experiences of his life that he shares with the reader.It interchanges between the tale of his father's death and his first child's birth, each unique experiences.
He and his wife had elected to have a homebirth way before they became fashoinable, and the endless parade of misfit Midwives makes for humorous reading.
the personal tradgedy of his father's murder, and the state of the family during that time give depth to the pages.
As well as he touches on subtle aspects of his life that may haunt him later, such as his head injuries that kept him out of the Army and his suggestion Natural birth should be required by law for at least two children per family.(Do we really want the government making this personal decision for us?How could anyone make such a suggestion!)
One point of note is chapter 9.A rant against birth-control and a disticntly male-sided view of free love and yuppies, (These views only are valid with one generation and don't seem to apply to us younger then baby boomers) which is typical of his style but totally seems out of place with the rest of the book.
A deeply moving recounting of past experiences with an ironic climax.
But a suggestion to a would-be-buyer:Get it off of Amazon.It's much cheaper.[...]

5-0 out of 5 stars Bravo! Bravo!
I loved Dirk's Second book, and it was so wonderfully written by a honest man, not by a celebrity, and I actually felt for the man what he went through for the birth of his first son, George, by reading the pages, and I love the ending, and I hope that he would actually write more for the happiness, and the being of his fans, because we would want more, who wouldn't agree with me?

5-0 out of 5 stars A TAPESTRYOF THE HEART
In case you didn't know, Dirk Benedict is that good looking actor who endeared himself to millions by playing the loveable scam artist, "Face" on the A-Team. In addition to this and numerous other acting credits, Mr. Benedict has to rank as one of the finest yet most under-rated writers of non-fiction in America. Believe it! He is THAT good!

In, "And Then We Went Fishing", he delicately intertwinesthe story of the birth of his son with the tragic murder of his father. And hethrows in a little bit of Shakespeare for company. But the English bard is not needed here as Mr. Benedict's smooth and thoughtful prose can easily stand on it's own merits.

The author does not play it safe with this book. It's not just that he chooses to show us his heart and share his intimate thoughts. He risks compromising this by using flash backs. Lesser word smiths can mess up their storieswhen they use this style by confusing their readers with the "back and forth" technique.Not Dirk Benedict. He has masterful control of his prose and manages to captivate his reading audience. The result is a beautiful tapestry of 2 different stories that occured decades apart.

The only criticism I have of this work is the occasional use of cuss words. Not to be prudish, but most of them were really not necessary.I would recommend that those who teach others how to write prose, put this book on their students required reading list. The tome will not only teach them technique but it will give them a clear example of what putting one's heart into their writing is truly about.

Dirk Benedict, you're not only a talented actor but a great author. Encore.

5-0 out of 5 stars Not just a pretty "face"!
From the guy who brought so many cliches to the screen, to a writer with an honest and traditional background, came "And then we went fishing". I cannot describe the underlying sense or feeling one receives when reading this book.Then comes a story from out of the blue that confirms to you inside that there are good people in the world, moreover, there are people who can be honest with those they know not. To me that is the sign of a true writer,more importantly of a good man. Good Luck. ... Read more

Excerpt: Peter Henry Fonda (born February 23, 1940) is an American actor. He is the son of Henry Fonda, the brother of Jane Fonda, and the father of Bridget and Justin Fonda (by first wife Susan Brewer, stepdaughter of Noah Dietrich). Fonda is an icon of the counterculture of the 1960s. Fonda was born in New York City, New York, the son of actor Henry Fonda and his wife Frances Ford Seymour; he is the younger brother of actress Jane Fonda. On his eleventh birthday, he accidentally shot himself in the stomach and nearly died. Years later, he would reference this incident to John Lennon claiming "I know what it's like to be dead", which ended up becoming an indirect influence behind the Beatles song "She Said, She Said". Early on, Fonda studied acting in Omaha, Nebraska, his father's home town. He began attending the University of Nebraska at Omaha and joined the Omaha Community Playhouse, where many actors (including his father and Marlon Brando) had begun their careers. Fonda found work on Broadway where he gained notice in Blood, Sweat and Stanley Poole, before going to Hollywood to make films. He started his film career in romantic leading roles. He debuted in Tammy and the Doctor (1963), which he called "Tammy and the Schmuckface". But Fonda's intensity impressed Robert Rossen, the director of Lilith (1964).
