I was wary about downloading this audiobook based on the two poor reviews. Fortunately, I checked amazon's reviews and found over 270 5-star, more thorough reviews. I downloaded and listened to this audiobook during each gym workout. I was blown away by the wealth of research and results given in this book.
Let me quickly address the two reviews given here. Marianne, you're right when you say the recipes are not included in the audiobook version. However, very early in the audiobook, Dr. Fuhrman announces a website - his own website if I recall correctly - which apparently has a wealth of recipes along with a forum to connect to other users. Because I was in the middle of a gym workout, I wasn't able to write it down and will have to go back to it to obtain the address.
Rob, either you reviewed the wrong audiobook, or there's another reason for your inaccurate review that you haven't shared with us. I paid close attention and don't recall hearing even one mention of "miraculous". In fact, the only fad-type talk I heard was when Dr. Fuhrman was revealing the deception behind fad diets! And you mention how his quoting of medical studies turns you off... it's called supporting evidence. And unlike fad diets and so much of the confusing, conflicting information we receive, Dr. Fuhrman referenced a vast amount of credible sources with conclusive results. Lastly, I question your sincerity of actually listening to/reading this book. The whole point of the book is there is no miracle or way to cheat to lose weight. In fact, Dr. Fuhrman repeatedly reminds us that while short-term, immediate results are often favored by people looking to lose weight, the real importance are the long-term effects on our health and lives. That's precisely why the book is called, "Eat To LIVE".
Lastly, Dr. Fuhrman recommends also reading/listening to T. Colin's book, The China Study. I just finished it; it's another EXCELLENT, worthwhile book.
