Informative, life-changing, helpful
Yes, I was annoyed by the tone of his voice, but I got used to it. Mispronouncing words like Quinoa (Keen-wa is correct), and Shiitake (sh-tah--kee is correct) and other examples of mispronouncing things drove me up a wall and was distracting.
Mother, Wife, Cultural Anthropologist, always a scholar and lover of books!
I enjoyed this book and found far too many of my own symptoms listed in the problems of gluten.
I heard about this book for some time. Since I loved bread and all pasta related products it was a hard thing to pick up this book and read it.
I'm glad I did! what a game changer!!!!!!You will never look at modern bread the same after reading this book - Thanks to dr. William Davis. He provides a lot of information and data, as well its all evidence based medicine! Not his word or opinion.
this is a must read book !!!
I listen mostly on my bike as it's how I commute. I like to listen to a lot of non-fiction but also autobiographic comedies and some novels.
The evidence was limited to case studies and correlative evidence trying to pass as conclusion causation.
Certainly no from the genre but I'm turned off of the author.
By siting repeatable double blind tests.
It was structure coherently.
Many of the authors similes or attempts at a social/human touch sounded egocentric or condescending siting over simplified stereotypes for characters and situations in a failed attempt to empathize with the audience.
The premise behind the book is very interesting but after awhile it sort of feels like there should be an altar call.
In the very top.
All of the health problems caused by wheat, especially bi-polar mental illness, I have dealt with this first and second hand!
Relief, my health problems were real, not in my head. Healing here I come!!!
This is the most helpful book I have ever read on health! I have read it 3 times so far. I will probably try to read it once a month!
Excellent Science to back his works.
The diversity of the effects wheat has on our bodies. His works are superbly spelled out so you completely understand. He uses some good humor as well. Not at all dry, great book. Loved it.
He is a great reader. He has good all around reader qualities. He does hard to digest material well. Legal, political and this book which is medical. All well delivered without feeling like you're watching paint dry.
I gave it space, I also re listened to some chapters as there are points that are technical but not complicated.
After this book. I eat NOTHING wheat at all. Nor have the rest of our family. All seeing improvements. Great recipes in the download. That alone is worth the book.
This book is not for dummies. If, after hearing what this man has to say, you continue to eat wheat (and sugar - HFC) you are a real dummy. I bought this audible book a few months ago and implemented a wheat-free regimen after listening to it the very first time. I have now listened to it 3, probably 4 times, and learn something new each time I hear it.
I think the author, William Davis, is right in his evaluation of the current state of American health. I have lost 47 pounds in the last six months. You know, it's tough, but after I started looking at certain foods (wheat and sugar) as being poison, I just don't put them in my body anymore. Oh, yes. My diabetes is under control, I have lost 13 inches around my waistline, and I have found my lap again. I can fit in an airplane seat, in a restaurant booth, and no longer drag the chair I'm sitting in up with me when I stand up. I've lost 3 dress sizes, too. Whole grains are NO GOOD!
I did some research on the author and on the whole "wheat controversy", and there are a lot of people out there, including my own health insurance company, that told me not to do this diet. They can shove it. I don't consider it a diet. It's my new lifestyle, and I am thrilled!
If you have a medical condition that justifies that you avoid wheat then this is a good book. The problem is that wheat is a health food for the vast majority of people and this book avoids the facts of current medical research as it pertains to the benefits of wheat. I recommend reading "The China Study" if you want a book based on the facts as supported by hundreds of medical studies.
