    The tables of data, which were my main reason for buying the book, are almost completely unreadable on kindle on my ipad.

    Hard to believe the extremely low price I paid for this big, hardcover book I actually paid for shipping than I did the book, so we bought one for ourselves and our relatives The information is easy to decipher for someone who is well versed in health as well as beginners Really a fantastic compilation of information.

    Excellent book I recommend it to anyone serious or partially serious about getting their nutritional habits under control Tons of information that, really, cannot be found in any other reference.

    First I ll say I gave up on this book pretty quickly I originally bought it because of the indexes in the back, which list calorie and other nutritional info for all kinds of fresh foods But as I began to read the other healthy eating information, I realized it was complete spin, sponsored by Dole foods among others When I read the statement that organic foods are not proven to be any better for you, I closed the book and put it away Haven t opened it since This statement is so obviously false It has been clearly, scientifically proven that organic foods are nutritious and healthful, both for their improved nutritional content and lack of toxic pesticides.This lie made me decide that I couldn t believe anything else written in this book, either I will find a trustworthy source for my diet advice in the future.
