Oh, and even though the tone and vocabulary varies DRASTICALLY between the parts of the first chapter that describe the illness and the part that describes the "cure", I am 99.99% positive it's not outright plagarized.
Oh, wait, it totally is, plug it into google.
But the book was inexplicably awful. Not only is the author obviously unqualified in the field of health, she is unqualified in the field of written English. It may be that there is some actual science hidden in all those clumsy attempts at complete sentences. Probably not. It was a very disappointing read. How could I have been misled?
I went back to the product page and re-read the description, and I realized what I had missed before: the author lists the eleven sports she is good at as "near-professional golf, swimming, surfing, hiking, pool, Ping Pong, skiing, ocean kayaking, lake kayaking, and white water rafting." Count them carefully...that is only TEN sports! Lynette Ann Yount, you should be ashamed of so brazenly misrepresenting your qualifications. If I had known you were only good at ten sports, I would never have considered purchasing your book. Anyone can be good at ten sports.
Also, ocean kayaking and lake kayaking really don't count as two different sports.
I would just like to say that, as promised, reading it did save me! It likewise saved my distant cousin Hepatitis, who is also truly grateful, but unfortunately, being a virus instead of a bacterium, is unable to use a computer and leave his own review.
I'm hoping the remaining seven illnesses chime in and report their own results after reading this book.
After laughing my a$$ off reading the acknowledgements I read the first page. I was shocked to read something coherently written. Hmmmm... So I googled a random line from the first paragraph. Guess what? That line appeared verbatim on [..]
Turns out that the first several pages at least are just copied down from the National Institute of Health website.
Yes, darling, you are smarter than a doctor. Those stupid doctors that wrote the material you then plagiarized were stupid enough to do research and publish these things out on the interwebs for the public good. You were smarter b/c you skipped all the hard work and just copied and pasted their words into your book. That's soooo much smarter b/c its easier. Why didn't they just do that?!
Plagiarizing even one line would get me kicked out of my engineering program. Yes, you can quote a source but you must employ some way of referencing that quote and assigning the proper credit for it. The author here did not do that.
But, I digress. Who on earth encouraged this woman to publish this piece of nonsense? Her family should be ashamed of themselves for allowing it. Was this the only way that they could keep her out of their hair?
Did obtaining all those caffeine counts from companies regarding their random products and the trips to Costco keep her busy enough to stop bothering everyone around her? I'd think the eleventy sports she plays would have kept her busy but I guess not.
If avoiding caffeine could save lives, imagine what a simple run through with spell-check could do :-)
The most amazing part (to me) is that Amazon actually carries this piece of crap in stock. If only there was a "no start" option for rating. Maybe a little icon of a toilet. Amazon - look into this.

Now, is the sensor going to go in your cup, or your mouth? Perhaps the pot? I'm all for it, unless it's going in the anal tract, because by then it's just too late.Published 23 months ago by Sarah Alzas
