If you aren't familiar with any of his previous works, read Eat to Live first. This book seems to be the answer to criticisms and further questions. It is packed with studies, critiques of those studies and application to his message (if you prefer to see that kind of stuff than listen to it, get the kindle version). He also breaks down why other popular diets don't work (including eat to live vs. Paleo, Mediterranean, Wheat belly and Low Fat Vegan) and the redeeming qualities of those diets. This part was pretty interesting. In the last bit, he lays out the specifics of the nutritarian lifestyle. He gives suggestions for those who complain of lack of time to food prep. He also talks about how to prepare food so that it is very appealing. Some of the concepts are repeated but that's to drive those ideas home so that you recognize their importance. At the end I thought it was interesting how he also addresses his product line as to why so many products, their price and what it funds. It positively changed how I view his "brand."
The supplemental document is fabulous. Packed with lots of information and recipes. All the sidebars seem to be there as well as charts, images and more. I don't feel deprived of the kindle version with this document.
For performance, I would have preferred to hear Joel Fuhrman read the *whole* book (not just the beginning and end only). There were some medical terms that were strangely pronounced (unrelated to accent) and the speaker lacks the passion Joel Fuhrman has for his work. That passion would have made it easier to listen to although the speaker isn't terrible to listen to either.
Bottom line: I definitely recommend it.
