There is a lot of good information in this book with plenty of science to back it up. But, the presentation is a turnoff to an analytical mind. The endless testimonials are a turn off. When you have good science, testimonials not only are not necessary, they make it a less professional presentation. Additionally, it is repetitive. A good editor and proofreader could do great things with a new edition.

The book strikes a great balance between biological/medical information, taking action, and utilizing recipes. I would highly recommend it for anyone interested in an anti-inflammation diet/lifestyle.

Inflammation IS the cause of many illnesses and ailments. My child and my mother are living proof that ridding your body of inflammation helps your body to heal itself. I agree with most of what's in this book, but would suggest George's Aloe Vera as a substantive anti-inflammatory that every one should have every day.

A very interesting read with good nutritional insight into the modern diet and foods that contribute to many health issues, as well as quality suggestions for healthier options that relieve symptoms and sometimes even heal the body. As someone who's prediabetic and a long time sufferer of allergies (airborne and food) and asthma, I'm anxious to make some dietary and supplement changes and see if it helps.
