Great references, and simple common sense observations
How illnesses were reversed, like the woman w/rumitory arthritis

If you always have a book with you...
Loved this book. The author does a fantastic job explaining wheat from it's origins right up to today and the extreme effects it has on our lives. This book is a real eye opener and has changed my life. Based on science and actual accounts, Dr. Davis makes this a really enjoyable listen spotted with witty one liners throughout. Well worth the credit!
I went gluten free 3 years ago, only because my coach suggested it as well as my naturpath, I lost 100 pounds, threw away the nexium, and finished an Ironman-nuff said

This is the first book that I have listened to. So, I can only say that the voice was very pleasant. The inflection was perfect for the medical/anticdotal/documentary history of wheat and it's effects on modern people. I have listened three times!
The story of Wendy, a 30 something wife, mother of two and a teacher, who was facing small intestine removal and replacement by a colostomy bag. She came to Dr. Davis for a heart concern. He learned her story and suggested the removal of wheat. She said she tested negative for Celiacs disease so didn't see how that could help. Dr. Davis urged her to try, she had nothing to lose by doing so. She came back three months later, 38 pounds lighter, no surgery and no more of the previous symptoms that were requiring surgery! Cured from symptyms by the removal of wheat!The point is, Celiacs is hard to diagnose and there is no down side to removing wheat regarding health, in this case a cure! Imagine getting saved from that fate? Having to carry around a bag with you the rest of your life, now your intestines work correctly and your health restored! This struck home with me because my health took a severe change from healthy to not, in a very short period of time. I am 48 years old, but I felt like I was 80! I was diagnosed with inflamation, and that was the way it was. I started a food program called Transitions, that calls for no sugar, no processed food, no dairy and no grains for a period of time to figure out what a person may be sensitive to. Through the course of a year I discovered I was sensitive to wheat. I did not understand why until recently when I listened to Dr. Davis' book. AMAZING!
I would never have made it through all of the medical jargon or information!
At appropriate moments, there was a little comedy. Mostly amazing story after story very well read!
I highly recommend listening to this book because every bit is important and everyone should have this information! It will effect your life and the ones you love in a very positive and quality of life way! Without the ability to listen to the book, I wonder if I would have made it through the whole book, thus missing some very valuable information!
Maybe, depending on the topic and length of time to listen and value that goes with it.
Maybe, depending on topic relevant tomy health concern.
Listening tone monotonous sometimes. too fast in citing examples, some words/examples not easily grasp by listener.
No. Discussion was too long already. Convincing enough to let us know of disadvantage of consuming wheat products.
Many examples of food are repetitoious. Should mention food items from other countries since listeners and marketing of the books is global. Some listeners are From Asian countries.
I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
The message is important and I'm grateful for it. The science was not friendly to me. I took 4 years of high school math, 1 semester of higher level college math, high school biology, chemistry, physics, and two semesters of college biology and one semester of college anatomy. With this background under my belt you would think I would find this authors science interesting. No, it is boring. It is hard to listen. This book educates on the bad side effects of "wheat". It needs a new writer and a new narrator. Here's an example of how it could deliver it's excellent message and reach more people: "The Omnivore's Dilemma" authored by Michael Pollen is an excellent treatment on the bad side effects of "corn". Both give us excellent facts to improve our health. But "The Omnivore's Dilemma" educates on the ills of genetically modified corn in a way that is fascinating. I read the book twice and plan to reread it annually(and it was 5 times longer!). It was great! On the other hand "Wheat Belly" is so boring (after the first 30 minutes) that I have to read another audio book between 30 minute intervals of reading "Wheat Belly" to stay alert. It is like listening to a college biology/chemistry class: boring. Info is healthful but prepare for 7 hours of a sleepy college lecture.
Warning - I did not finish the book, so take my review as you like.
Doom and gloom narration is over the top and annoying.
Found the book repetitive. Ultimately got bored and stopped listening.
Yes and I will purchase a hardback of it as well. Tom Weiner gives these statistics life and energizes facts and a possible boring book to some. He did very well to keep my attention on those facts and why it is so important to know wheat is and has not been wheat for a long time.
No but I like his structure, tone and overall presentation as he read to me. Thanks Tom
Yes but as always I needed to reread areas again but that is just me and my brain working.
Learning I need to try this and see if it is do-able
The reader kept an at times technical book interesting.
It scared me for my grandchildren.
It gave me the insentive to pass on a lot of carbs, especially bread. Haven't eatin it for weeks and don't even miss it.
I'm not sure here. I don't like reading, so audios are for me!
Thanks to this author I have lost 6 kilos in 6 weeks.
