    Dr. Fuhrman's scientifically proven system enables you to finally conquer your cravings and food addictions, while steering your taste buds toward healthier food choices. Medical research proves that this is the most effective weight loss method ever studied. But be aware of the side effects...you may experience reversal of diseases such as heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes, and you will feel better than ever before!

    "Fantastic Book"
    Overall

    This is only book 1, book 2 is referenced a great deal in this book, so be aware that you won't be getting his recipes. That said, it's a fantastic program. Dr. Fuhrman is a very inspiring speaker and gives you the knowledge to make his program workable for you.

    "Be warned"
    Overall

    I bought this solely on the recommendation I heard from Orson Scott Card, I did not listen to the sample first. Be warned. While the story itself might be good, the reader destroyed it for me. I could not get into the story, for me, the rendition just made the whole thing sound dull and lifeless.

    dak in California says: "Bad Timing"
    "Bad Timing"
    Overall

    The readers pacing felt very awkward to me. Just did not flow well, pauses were way too long between sentences and she didn't seem to know what to do with the "he said" and "she cried out" after speaking in the characters voice. Her lack of timing hurt the story, which I found very dreamlike. The reader had a good voice, perhaps better editing might have helped.
