Editorial Reviews

Christopher McDougall
“Superb. It's a true owner's manual for the care and maintenance of the human machine. I've pored over health and fitness books for the past five years, and I haven't found anything to compare with the clarity and wisdom of Dr. Phil Maffetone.”
James Taylor
“Dr. Maffetone’s system goes beyond dealing with symptoms; he looks at health and fitness as an integrated balance. He deals with the whole picture clearly and directly. Fascinating and illuminating… and I feel great!”
