Darin's very easy to understand writing style of these 5 basic building blocks to live a superlife are easy to follow and put forth in a very non threatening way. A lot of diets and health books talk a lot and have little substance at the end of the day, this book provides instant things you can start doing right now to live a better, healthier life. And the recipes in the back of the book are yummy too!
