As an emergency physician I read this book with dismay, if too many of you take its advice, it will drastically decrease my income! In all seriousness, if you have been frustrated by all the diet / health advice books out there - look no further - this one truly puts it all together! Dr. Masley does a masterful job of explaining why most of us aren't really very healthy and then plots out a reasonable, entirely doable program to remedy that. Weaving in fascinating vignettes from his patients and family, he artfully explains the rapidly evolving science of staying healthy.
Most similar books advocate changes in diet so radical, that they are absurd and patently unrealistic - not this one! It explains in plenty of detail how to reasonably modify our diets in order to have marked effects on those diseases that rob us of our health and vitality. In addition to his dietary counsel, Dr. Masley wisely includes practical advice on how to exercise efficiently, de-stress our minds, and improve our sex lives.
Although I already consider myself pretty healthy and knowledgeable about the medical field, I was thrilled to learn so much more from this one book. It will definitely change not only my diet, but my approach to life!
