Those of us who have read this book have described it as 'I can't put it down', 'thoroughly enjoyable', 'life changing', 'very intriguing', 'this message has got to get out', 'right on target', 'unique message', 'nothing like it', 'firm but true', 'great book', 'very thought-provoking', 'even though the truth hurts, you are right on', 'Wow!!! - What a Ministry!!!', 'I hate it because it's great', 'well-researched', 'well-written', 'solid-Biblical-true', 'so convicting', and 'I wish my mom had never bought that book. Now all she buys is healthy stuff'. I can promise you that you have never read anything like this before. It is pure Bible from start to finish; not watered down with man's wisdom. This is God's plan for our diet and health, not some theory of man. Every Believer MUST read this!!!
