    Excellent resource for improvement of life.

    This book reinforced much of the nutritional information found in some other works by Pollan and others, but was much more useful in providing a practical guide to health and wellness. It also delves more deeply into the minds role in wellness than anything I've read before. The world needs more physicians like Dr. Weil.

    I love this book!

    This is book on health, but it is written like a story book--filled with cases of hope and healing. It covers all aspects of altenative medicine, from nutrition to mind body medicine. I simply loved it and recommend it highly.
