    "Just Okay"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    More valuable to someone with less knowledge of nutrition or less of a scientific outlook.


    What was most disappointing about Mark Hyman, M.D.’s story?

    Lacked details of the medical evidence substantiating his claims for the links between diet and diseases.

    Story
    "Great health plan, too many politics"

    This is a really good examination of the types of foods we should be eating a why. The why part takes up chapters 1-14. To get to the plan, just start around chapter 15.

    Warning: this book is very political.

    That may not bother you if you either agree with his politics (think ObamaCare) or if you can ignore them long enough to listen to the many good ideas about nutrition that are presented here. But if your blood pressure gets raised at the very mention of health care politics, it might be healthier for you to avoid this book.

    The author clearly knows his stuff as the book is very well researched and his ideas are presented in a clear format. The author is the narrator, and he does a wonderful job of reading his own material. His plan is understandable and doable, but the general ideas about how to choose food - what to eat and what to avoid are, to me, the meat of the book.

    Speaking of meat, I found him to be very open minded - he won't tell you that you have to be a vegetarian or a vegan to eat well, he just presents various ideas that you can choose from to find the best nutritional plan for you. He also addresses the use of a variety of vitamins and supplements.

    Another warning: if you're not just looking for ideas, but considering following the plan he outlines, you may want to consider getting the print version.This is also true for some of the more complex suggestions (vitamin and supplement usage).

    Personally, I liked the book so much that I bought the digital Kindle version for my phone so that I can pay closer attention to the details. The book did not receive a perfect score because I prefer my nutritional advice without a side of politics. Apart from that, I thought it was a great listen, and I will probably listen to parts of it again.

    "Sales pitch dressed up as health advice."

    If it was a hard copy book I would have tossed it in the first refuse bin I came accross. Perhaps I am not suited to the "go to my website........blah blah blah" style. Luckily it was just $4.95

    Story
    "A new way to think about what you eat"
    If you could sum up The Blood Sugar Solution in three words, what would they be?

    A revolutionary way to think about the health of your body and the food you eat.


    Have you listened to any of Mark Hyman, M.D.’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    This is the first.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made me realise I needed overall my diet so I could regain my health.

    Story
    "sensationalism is back"
    What disappointed you about The Blood Sugar Solution?

    I did not like how the author/narrator Mark Hyman, M.D. read the book. It seemed like he wasn't taking it seriously with a laughing rhythm to his voice. I felt like he was joking the entire time.


    What could Mark Hyman, M.D. have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    There were many calls to action, but not enough clear cut advice.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Someone else should have read it.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    It does make you think about your health, your input, and how most food and beverages we consume have no nutritional or redeeming values to it.

    Story
    "Wrong on some topics, but confident in all of them"
    What would have made The Blood Sugar Solution better?

    If the good doctor had put as much research into all of the subjects as the basic metabolism parts this could have been a good book.


    What was most disappointing about Mark Hyman, M.D.’s story?

    He embraced some very non scientific crap about electricity and magnetism and ran with it as if it were valid. This puts all of the material in doubt as I can't trust that he has examined the basis of his knowledge on any subject if he did such a poor job on this one.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment.
