Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Healthiness is a comprehensive medical resource for the whole family, applying Dr. Dean's practical health philosophies to today's most pressing topics, from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder to obesity, depression, and the effectiveness of alternative medicines.
Dr. Dean has answered more than 50,000 questions on the air in the last twenty-five years. Here, he encourages listeners to take charge of their own health with their most powerful weapons, common sense and a dose of skepticism, saving patients time, money, and especially anxiety.
"Edell...presents relaxed and practical advice....The questions Edell fields are very specific and relevant to many, and cover a wide range of topics....It is a useful reference, especially for advice on nutrition and alternative medicine." (Publishers Weekly)
"A health expert with a radio and TV following and a polished voice to match, Edell offers a sweeping range of observations, philosophies, and suggestions on how to live well....Edell's advice is worth hearing repeatedly." (AudioFile)
Having listen to and read Dr. Edell in the past it is clear that this abridged version left much to be desired. Points were often made and opinions given without backup or explanation. This is all too common with abridged books. Whenever possible I believe both versions of a book ought to be offered.
