Not for the weak of wallet...
I purchased this book post Oprah. I should have known then to proceed with monetary caution. Warning: the following statement may appear to be hateration, but is actually admiration. I dream of the day when I can afford cosmetic surgery. I wouldn't necessarily get it, but it would be nice just to know that I could afford it. If perchance you fall into the category of people who can afford cosmetic surgery, RUN to the bookstore, get this book before going to the surgeon. Dr. Perricone is about to save you money, time, and pain. However, for the rest of us working class people who not only are trying to get ends to meet, but have them sit down and be civil with each other, the next part of this review is for you. After reading Dr. Perricone's book, I now dream of the day that I can afford to purchase wild Alaskan Salmon by the case. Granted, beans are affordable, but I'm not going to eat the bloody buggers every day. If nothing else, I have had it reinforced that I need to reduce or avoid high glycemic foods (starchy veggies, starchy grains, and certain fruits), eat lots of vegetables, throw in a few fruits, and drink lots of water. Pretty much the same information spewed by the American Diabetic Association and other 'diet' gurus re-packaged to sell new hopes and dreams. Now before those of you who have read this book get all bent out of shape, allow me the time to state that this book does contain some valuable and very detailed information about 10 superfoods, herbs, and spices. However, I've bought this same info at the corner health food store ala Dick Gregory and the Black Muslims in a more concise and affordable format. But I understand everybody's got to make a living. Everybody's got to get their hustle on.
