I thought my lifestyle was very healthy, but I learned a number of practical and reasonable ways to improve my health immediately. The book has footnotes with authoritative references for all points covered which is extremely helpful in evaluating the merit of each suggestion. The book covers diet, diagnostic tests, exercise, supplements and mental health. I have read this book twice and taken notes on areas of most interest. I strongly recommend this book, it is the best book on overall health that I have come across.
