David Wolfe has really succinctly captured the quintessence of his life's work and love in this beautifully informative and extremely useful book. He doesn't just give you information, he gives you *knowledge*. And he gives you that knowledge with love and years of devotion to the lifestyle and the pursuit of the most valuable nutritional substances with the most powerful effects. A must read for anyone struggling to take their life and health rightfully into their own hands, and also to share that with anyone they know and love or even happen to meet! This book is a bridge over the gap in wisdom and health and wholeness that has been created and upheld over the years by the systems and companies that care for profit before the people. This is your chance to take back what health, power, and happiness (and years to your life!) you may think you've lost. If we expect our species to thrive and advance, it MUST start with the most amazing nutrition and health and perspective that you can gain from this book and the lifelong journey it will take you on. Let your life be "the best ever"!! I've read quite a chunk of material on nutrition and its application over the years, and I consider this book to be one of the most important and most powerful books I've ever read. It has transformed my life and health, and that of my partner who's battled numerous struggles in his life (including cancer). And perhaps most importantly, it has transformed my ability to help my family, my friends and my clients. Invest in this book and the return will be greater than you ever believed possible. Thank you David Wolfe for you unwavering dedication to the best living ever and your help in pushing for that better tomorrow.
