About the Author

Danna Korn is respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it. She's been featured in People Magazine, on ABC's "20-20," and dozens of other national media outlets. She is the co-author of Gluten-Free Cooking For Dummies.

More About the Author

(www.dannakorn.com) ...
Known as "The Gluten-Free Guru," Danna Korn is an author, motivational speaker, and renowned expert on the gluten-free diet and medical conditions that benefit. She is the author of six bestselling books (her 7th is in the works) on the subject of the gluten-free lifestyle, including three in the prestigious "For Dummies" series. "For Dummies" authors are always the gurus in their field, and are asked to author the books -- not the other way around.

Respected as one of the leading authorities on the gluten-free diet and the medical conditions that benefit from it, she has been featured in People Magazine, on ABC's "20-20," and dozens of other national media outlets.

Danna's passion for helping people live (and love!) a gluten-free lifestyle was born from a desperate need to help her own son. In 1991, her son was diagnosed with celiac disease, a genetic intolerance to gluten. Doctors told her that her son, like others with celiac disease, would "suffer" a life of deprivation and restrictions, and they gave her no direction for following a gluten-free diet, which was the key to his improved health. Danna wasn't about to accept that sentence, nor would she flounder like many others attempting a gluten-free diet did. Furthermore, she was committed to helping others who could benefit from her knowledge. She was a mom on a mission to help millions.

Without the benefit of the internet, and ignoring the widespread warnings that no one would ever publish a book on the subject, Danna conducted extensive medical research with the nation's foremost experts, and then wrote her first book -- she sent four proposals to publishers. She received four acceptances.

Her work in the gluten-free community has had profound effects, resulting in availability of products that would never have made it to store shelves, and a skyrocketing awareness of the benefits of a gluten-free diet.

Several bestselling books and thousands of speaking engagements later, Danna has earned the moniker of "Gluten-Free Guru" -- and in the process has helped improve the lives of millions by helping them adopt healthier lifestyles. She is a partner with General Mills and their gluten-free initiative, and a consultant for Prometheus Laboratories. In 1991 she founded (and still runs) the world's largest support group of its type, R.O.C.K. (Raising Our Celiac Kids), which has more than 140 chapters throughout the U.S. and Canada.

Danna's passion for wellness extends far beyond gluten-free living. She is co-founder and CEO of Sonic Boom Wellness, an innovative corporate wellness company with more than 100 well-known clients throughout the world.

Don't let the "For Dummies" moniker fool you. Typically, you find so much mis-information online and in other published books relating to gluten-free advice, it's refreshing to read such a well-researched, vibrant, accurate, and, dare I say, inspiring game plan for embarking on a lifelong gluten-free journey. No stone is left unturned, and many myths are dispelled - with an ample dose of wit and humor.

Most gluten-free books are clinical, boring, and dry. This one is fun, whimsical, positive, and energetic. You feel like the author is truly optimistic about the gluten-free diet being the key to optimal health. No gf book I've read paints such an accurate, in-depth and rosy picture.

As the author of Simple Gluten Free Living I have read a fair number of books on gluten free cooking and living, this is one of the good ones. A solid introduction to living a gluten free lifestyle, plenty of advice and some very good recipes. Very useful section on eating out.

I am not celiac, but am gluten-intolerant. This easy to understand guide got me on the right track and saved a lot of time on what to do, lists of items to avoid and those to include and where to go.

I've had a recent diagnosis of Gluten Intolerance and I was looking for a good book to teach me what I need to know to avoid wheat. I was completely overwhelmed with all the choices of books on "Gluten Free" living. However, having had excellent luck with other "Dummies" Books, I decided to get this one. I am SO glad I did!

This book is totally comprehensive. It covers everything from getting the diagnosis to recognizing covert gluten ingredients to how to change your favorite recipes to make them gluten free and so much more.

I expected to need to buy another book or two after this one to get a complete education on gluten free living, but now I don't need to - this book really taught me everything I needed to know.

It is kind of scary to find out you have to stop eating wheat for the rest of your life - it can seem so overwhelming because wheat feels like it is in EVERYTHING at times. This book broke it down and made the lifestyle MUCH more managable for me.

She also has a really good chapter on dealing with negative feelings regarding this kind of diagnosis. I have not dealt with the negative feelings she describes [my health has improved SO vastly that I can honestly say I don't miss wheat at all!], but I think that chapter would be incredibly helpful for people who ARE struggling with their diagnosis.

The other thing I loved about this book is that it is so readable. The author is a great writer - she is witty, she includes little anecdotes from her life to help you understand what she's teaching, and the book is really entertaining to read. I was very afraid that it might be dry and "medical text book" type reading, but it is not at all. It is a fun, enjoyable read.

As a RN with dermatitis herpetiformis (celiac with overt skin manifestations), I can say with complete authority that a celiac cannot use beauty products with any type of gluten - contrary to the misinformation in this book. As a person with a background in biology and chemistry, I am lucky enough to know what those are...(FYI - They are not always listed as 'wheat.')

Dietary restrictions set forth in this book are not enough to keep a celiac healthy. There is more hidden gluten in food than what this book would have one believe. Just because it says "gluten free" does not necessarily mean it is safe to consume. 'Gluten free' Oats, even if made in a dedicated factory, still have proleins to which celiacs react. In addition, quinoa is now being looked at as unsafe. A simple Pubmed search quickly reveals that (perhaps after personal experience of being horribly 'glutened' by it after heeding the suggestions in this book.)

The book does not touch on cross-reactivity or other relevant dietary considerations. (i.e. celiacs should be very careful to not eat genetically modified corn and soy. Furthermore, some SMART experts say celiacs should just avoid all grains.)

In addition, I do not think this book was written by someone with celiac who knows the pathophysiology of it or how to handle living with it. It might be worth a perusal at the library. For more information on celiac, get Celiac: A Hidden Epidemic after first looking at the National Library of Medicine online and celiac.org.

After surfing the internet to learn a bit about gluten and what it can do to the body, this is one of the first books I read about celiac disease and gluten intolerance. I knew I was dealing with inflammation in my body and wanted to find a way for my body to heal itself. I found this book very helpful in many ways and very encouraging! I have now purchased it for my young adult son who has struggled with some health issues as well. I realize there are others in my family dealing with gluten intolerance too.

Recently diagnosed with a gluten intolerance, I was looking for extra information. This was easy to read with organized chapters. Another reviewer chastized the author for mis-using the term "gluten allergy" saying it should say wheat allergy. The author explains this very early in the book and uses "gluten allergy" as a catch-all, even though she knows itis technically incorrect. I will recommend this to anyone who has been found to have a gluten intolerance.
