Editorial Reviews

Midwest Book Review
"Complete with a sample meal plan, What Nurses Know...Gluten-Free Lifestyle is a sage and recommended resource, not to be missed."-Midwest Book Review

"People with celiac disease can face many challenges in their journey to getting diagnosed. Sylvia Bower has put together a book that beautifully illustrates and provides solutions for these challenges."-Mary K. Sharrett, MD, RD, LD, CNSD, Dietitian Advisor to the Gluten-Free Gang Clinical Dietitian, Nationwide Children's Hospital, Columbus, OH

"For the vast majority of human beings eating is another automatic activity. Not for celiacs for which eating is a very engaging task of their daily routine. With this book, Sylvia is giving us the tools to address these challenges with a creative approach that brings gluten-free lifestyle back to human dimensions. The book is fresh, easy to follow and, most importantly, full of "useful condiments" for the reader." -Alessio Fasano, MD, Professor of Pediatrics, Medicine, and Physiology, Director, Mucosal Biology Research Center, University of Maryland School of Medicine

"This book provides easy to understand information about the labs used to screen for celiac disease, as well as patient testimonials which puts you right at the heart of what patients are going through."-Marlisa Brown, MS, RD, CDE, CDN, President of Total Wellness Inc Bay Shore, NY and author of Gluten-Free, Hassle-Free

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Lisa G Brown, BS, RD, LD, CDE (College of Saint Benedict)
Description: This is a practical guide for nurses to increase their knowledge base to help patients make lifestyle changes to live gluten free. It provides personal stories as teaching tools for health professionals to gain insight into living gluten free.
Purpose: The author would like the book to serve as a resource for nurses to help patients overcome the challenges to eating gluten free. The author's objectives are met with her testimonials providing positive real life options for people diagnosed with gluten intolerance.
Audience: Although written for nurses, as the title reflects, the book would benefit all healthcare professionals and people diagnosed with gluten intolerance. The information is based on currently available research outlined in a bibliography by chapters at the end of the book.
Features: The book provides down to earth information to help people move forward in their lives living gluten free. The author uses testimonials to provide insight into, and tools for, this lifestyle. She provides scientific, evidence-based information on celiac disease, gluten intolerance, and gluten allergies. The book is written in an easy to understand style, making the information ready to use. A glossary, a chapter on resources and where to obtain them, and a well-referenced bibliography round out the book. The shortcoming is in the title, which might unnecessarily limit the audience to nurses when other health professionals and people needing to follow a gluten-free lifestyle could benefit from reading the book.
Assessment: This book delivers useful, accurate, well-documented information with a personal feel and it is a great addition to the field as a general introduction. Other books that provide additional information in this area include Gluten-Free Diet: A Comprehensive Resource Guide, revised and expanded edition (Case Nutrition Consulting, 2010), The Gluten-Free Nutrition Guide, Thompson (McGraw-Hill, 2008), and Celiac Disease: A Hidden Epidemic, revised and updated edition, Green and Jones (William Morrow, 2010).

    Great Resource to Learn About Celiac Disease!

    Both my 12-year-old son and I were recently diagnosed with Celiac Disease. I have read everything I can get my hands on to learn about how to eat, what to do, what this all means for both of us. Of the half dozen books I've read, this is been the best reference so far. Living Gluten-Free for Dummies is also very good, but I liked this one because it has a lot of practical tips, other people's stories, it's well organized and gives really down-to-earth advise. It's a great resource to help understand all of the different changes and gives good advise about where to start.
