Review quote

Advance Praise for THE SPECTRUM A Scientifically Proven Program to Feel Better, Live Longer, Lose Weight, and Gain Health "In 1993, Hillary asked Dr. Dean Ornish to consult with us on improving our health and well-being and to train the chefs who cooked for us at The White House, Camp David, and Air Force One. I felt better and lost weight when I followed his recommendations. As this book illustrates, my genes may have been improving as well! If you want to see where medicine is likely to be five or ten years from now, read this book today." -President Bill Clinton ""The Spectrum" is absolutely fantastic. Time and again, Dr. Dean Ornish has scientifically proven that what was once thought to be medically impossible is, in fact, possible. His work is truly revolutionary." -Mehmet Oz, M.D. Professor of Surgery & Director, Cardiovascular Institute, Columbia University Medical Center author, "You: The Owner's Manual" and "You: On a Diet " "Dr. Ornish's wonderful new book, "The Spectrum," can make an important difference in the health of the world at a time when it most needs it." -Gro Brundtland, M.D. Former Director General, World Health Organization, United Nations Former Prime Minister, Norway "Dr. Dean Ornish knows more about inspiring people to eat well, live well, do well, and be well than anyone on the planet.
