I just finished reading the book, and I have classify it as well-written, worth reading, and thought-proving. I'm not one to subscribe easily to the theories outlined, but there is certainly a lot of material to make you think - even if you are skeptical about any new age theories. It's important to make clear this is not a self-help book, it's a popular science book about Dardik and you can form your own opinion at the end. I suspect some other reviewers have made assumptions about the book without reading it.

It's not a hard-sell for Dardik's theories. On balance I'd say that the book is more ABOUT Dardik and his theories, than a PROMOTION of his theories. Yes, it's a fine line (so many might disagree with me), because the author is more a fan than a skeptic, but at the same time he is careful to point out that the empirical studies appear to be consistent with the theory rather than prove it. The author is clearly a balanced popular-science writer and not a marketing mouthpiece for Dardik.

As for some reviews enthusiastically endorsing the book, I do find them suspiciously well-written to have come from the "ordinary public". I wouldn't for a minute suspect the author Mr. Lewin to be behind this (or even Dardik who probably has much better things to do with his time)... however the style of their language does make me stop and think. For example, one of the reviews says "Lucky for you, you can start the program for less than $20 for this book.
Get the book. Do the program. You'll be glad you did. I know I am." - well, actually the book does not outline the program nor does even the website for Dardik's company - you have to sign up for their program.

I really liked the book, on a literary level. It was well written, engaging, and thought provoking. However, it really fails, and fails badly at giving the how to's. I'd love to try the protocol the Dradik has developed and the book describes, but there just isn't enough detail about how to institute it. i feel like I was shown a menu and then told I couldn't ordewr the food. From what I undersatnd, Dardi charges $5,ooo a month to enroll in his program! That leaves out most of the planet. So much for sharing usable information.

Format: Hardcover
In his/her short "review," "jubjub" makes the extremely serious accusation that either I, as author, or Irving Dardik, as the subject of the book, must have "paid" some of the reviewers, because of their positive comments. ("Jubjub" uses the derogatory term "infomercial language.") While I refrain from stooping to respond to such a base claim, I would ask why "jubjub" would seek to hide behind a mask of anonymity while making such a claim about me in such a public arena? Does she/he not have the decency or courage to simply identify themselves? What does she/he have to hide, if anything? (In entering this "review," I was asked to select a rating; as author, I simply entered its current rating, not wishing to skew the rate either way.)

Format: Hardcover
As a science writer Roger Lewin has always been on the cutting edge of science and as a gifted writer he has made the most difficult scientific concepts read like a novel. He does it again in "Making Waves." Weaving a biography, science, and the evolution of a revolutionary idea, Lewin hits on a big idea, that we can "cause health" rather than attack disease. Beyond the intellectual argument, the power of "Making Waves" strikes an intuitive chord. In a society where the pace is fast and flat, where we grow ever more disconnected from nature's cycles, intuitively it makes sense that if we recreate cycles of exertion and rest, of action and reflection, that we will be healthier because we are in rhythm with nature. It's provocative to look at life through the lens of waves,cycles rhythms or lack of them--according to Dardik everything is waves.

Although controversial, Dardik has to be commended for his tenacity against a lot of resistance. From Galileo to Darwin, new ideas are not received quickly--people resist change when their foundation of beliefs are challenged. But like his predecessors, Dardik perserveres because he has a gem of truth that can revolutionize our world--from cold fusion, metallurgy, to health. This book is a great and fast read and will leave you thinking. It offers ideas for small actions we can all do to get back into sync with ourselves and with nature. And for those with chronic disease it is a ray of hope.

I have had personal experience with Irving Dardik's revolutionary wellness program, and I can vouch for its efficacy. Making Waves tells the story of Dardik's journey to developing a revolutionary approach to health and disease, based on his SuperWave Principle. The Principle is far reaching, and goes far beyond the health/disease realm. It's a terrific read, and details Dardik's struggle with the medical establishment, and his ultimate vindication. I recommend the book to anyone who is interested in learning more about their own body, and about the interconnectedness of nature throughout all of nature. It's a true story, but it's so fantastic that it reads like a novel!
