Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Celebrity dermatologist Perricone (The Perricone Prescription) claims to have the key to blocking age-related illness while achieving youthful skin and energy. Based on nutrigenomics, an emerging field linking nutrition and longevity, his plan claims to activate age-reversing genes and biochemicals with superfoods (e.g., wild salmon, watercress, chia seeds, barley grass, cinnamon, cocoa); supplements (e.g., vitamins K and D, astaxanthin, Pycnogenol); a fat-burning diet with recipes; yoga; and rest. While other recent titles--particularly Michael Roizen and Mehmet Oz's YOU: Staying Young--echo such counsel, Perricone takes a beeline approach, backed by new technologies (Perricone's own Cold Plasma cream) and noninvasive skin treatments (micro-current). A resource list directs readers to Perricone-brand or promoted products (Williams-Sonoma cookbooks, Le Creuset cookware, etc.). Many favorite foods are forbidden in exchange for ageless beauty without chronic dieting and excessive workouts. After a few days free of dietary devils, readers might even embrace Perricone's model of success: Madonna and her salmon retox.

As usual, Dr. Perricone is a Scientist I can trust. This book is a Master Piece! In answer to the only person that didn't give it an excellent rating, I'll state the reason why she/he didn't interpret it the way I did, which I hope it will help you in reading this book. Dr. Perricone is a Scientist and although scientific language can get to be hard to understand, Dr. Perricone does a fantastic job in using scientific language but at the same time explaining well for the rest of us (non-scientists)! When you are reading a book like this or any other technical work, Read those scientific descriptions and move on. Seek for the main idea of the paragraph or section. Dr. Perricone will follow with what he is getting at in such a simple way as no other. The technical part is necessary, at least to me, not because I'm passionate about how to spell these weird difficult to pronounce and spell difficult words but because it gives credibility. If a person tells me or I read that someone says that "X" fruit from France does wonders in your skin, I'll say, what proof or what kind of research you have done to come up with that. Even further, the word "research" does not give it credibility. A research study has to follow certain guidelines, example two groups, one expose to what they are testing and another a placebo (water pill) and they don't know what they are getting, the size of the group and other factors. This is why I trust Dr. Perricone, he is a true scientist.
So, back to the main idea in the book. He is letting us know that this field of Nutrigenomics, in a simplistic way, the things that you choose to eat will give your body "instructions" on how to behave and also inter-act with other nutrients.

Dr. Nicholas Perricone's book, "Forever Young" offers so much to the Reader, in terms of being healthier, and even more attractive.

I am a woman of 82 years old, I have been told, I look at least 15 years younger. His advice regarding what we should eat, since
our body is our Temple, and we should treat it as such, is highly valued .

I have watched Dr. Perricone on PBS Programs , in the Past, and learned on how to be "Forever Young", as my Reward!

Oh yes, I have very few wrinkles, could it also be attributed to the organic virgin olive oil, I grew up eating, being Italian?
I have already lent his book out to my closest friend.

This is my all-time favorite book of any type. It is my first Perricone book. I have now bought six or seven copies, including gifts and loaners that friends have kept. The content is interesting to a wide variety of readers, from my nephew in his twenties to my men and women friends in their thirties to sixties. The content covers Dr. Perricone's recommendations on everything from green tea, breakfast, super foods, spices, supplements, microcurrent skin treatments, and more. There is a very important chapter on menopause, its effects on aging, and suggestions for managing them. This book will help you separate truth from hype. This is a good book to read and then keep on hand for reference.

I ordered this because I really like Dr. Perricone and his products. It will take awhile for me to research side effects of his recommendations, but overall I think he is ahead of anyone else on skincare. I love the detailed explanations he provides. I will be incorporating his advice into my routine.
