This book only contains general information about the idea of low-carb diets, and pretty elementary information at that. There's really very little of the "how-to" of the various kinds of the low-carb diets mentioned in the title. There is little information to help you compare and contrast these diets, because there are significant differences that are ignored in the book. For example, the Atkins diet teaches "don't be afraid of fats," whereas the Dukan diet is quite anti-fat. There are also many misspellings and grammatical errors that give the impression that the text was just slapped together. You can get more info for free from a simple Internet search.

Every low-carb expert seems to have their own take on what works best and which way you should do it. I've tried a few (yes, I jumped on the Carole Middleton bandwagon) and so after deciding I wanted to put together my own diet, this book was perfect. It's like a compilation of expert low-carb advice - without a hard-sell for there being just one way to do it. I found it very eye-opening, and it's helped me put together my own plan that I think I'll have a much better chance of actually sticking to!
