  • Fantastic Resource to Have5

    Rachel den Hartigh I turn to this book a lot. It's like an encyclopedia. It has a lot of helpful information analyzing modern food as well as healthy recipes. It does seem daunting and over-whelming at first, but over 4 years I have slowly changed our family's diet to become a 'nourishing traditions diet', and we are better for it, especially our young children. by Rachel den Hartigh

  • Disappointed.2

    Michael J Davis This book contains all the faults it condemns in others. I found it totally impracticable and just another fad eating dissertation. From the description, I was expecting a knowledge-based critique of the claims made by so-called medical authorities and diet "gurus, based on valid scientific studies and at least some knowledge of mammalian physiology. I was "expensively" disillusioned. by Michael J Davis
