About the Author

Kevin Trudeau is fast becoming the nation’s foremost consumer advocate. Adopting as both his business and personal mission statement a vow to "positively impact the whole person," Kevin has been involved in a vast array of business enterprises that marketed or sold products that he personally used and believed in 100%. Having been personally responsible for over $2 billion in business world-wide, Kevin knows from personal experience how big business and government try to debunk individuals who promote products that could hurt the profits of the giant multinational corporations. Kevin spends most of his time spearheading a website that promotes education about natural healing therapies; and a website that exposes corporate and government abuse and corruption. Kevin is actively pursuing lawsuits against the individuals, corporations and government agencies that take advantage of the average consumer. He is also dedicated to the formation of various foundations to pursue these goals, and has donated much of his fortune for that purpose.

Not one thing he says on the infomercial about finding cures is in the book.

I gave a 2 rating because some people actually gave a 5 star rating and I haven't read the book yet (I will soon but I won't buy it).
Sharaya Smith
I am not a fan of big drug companies, FTC and the FDA, but boy did I get taken by this man Kevin Trudeau.

I saw Kevin's infomercial on TV and was very excited about getting the book. But since I didn't want to spend $30.00 blindly, I waited for the book to get to the library and went on the waiting list to get it. When I got the book and read it,I was glad I didn't spend a cent on it. The book is just an infomercial for a website he has, so you will spend more money. In the infomercial he says he'll tell you the cures for many diseases in the book, and when you read the book he tells you he can't tell you anything because of the FTC, so please go and subscribe to his website. That's crazy! Please don't buy this book and if you're curious about it, just go to your library and check it out.

The infomercial on t.v. and his description of this book is a farse. NO CURES LISTED. The book tells you to go to other websites to then pay more for membership fees to learn what he won't tell you in his book. The book title should be CURES I AM NOT GOING TO TELL YOU ABOUT IN THIS BOOK!! A waste of $30. Now I have learned the hard way to read the reviews FIRST! This book is a rip off. It should be rated A MINUS.

I also was disappointed in Mr. Trudeau's book. It seemed almost every page made reference to going to his website and joining as a "private member". While I agreed with many of the insights he DID share concerning big medicine and the FDA, he gave very little useful information in the book itself. Disappointing to say the least.

The capper was his chapter entitled "A True FDA Horror Story" where he recounts the harrassment that befell a small businessman who'd come up with some kind of cure for some disease. In the story, Mr. Trudeau claims he can't tell you what the disease was, nor what the product was, but he can on his website.

If any of this garbage about not being able to write about this stuff for fear of prosecution and/or harrassment by the FDA were true, writing about it on his website would simply lead to the same eventual outcome. While I believe he probably does offer more info on the website, I believe his real motivation for not putting this info in the book is to make more money from the website.

Another interesing but disturbing revelation is the inexcusable lack of research done by Mr. Trudeau. For example, when writing about Aspartame, he writes that it was originally created by the "Surrell Corporation" which was then acquired by Monsanto. While it's true that Monsanto did buy the company, it was the SEARLE Corporation (then headed by none other than Mr. Donald Rumsfeld...yes, THAT Donald Rumsfeld). Did someone simply tell him this story and he wrote the name phonetically??? Maybe not that big a deal, but definitely didn't help his credibility.

In conclusion, based on the information he DOES offer, it seems Mr. Trudeau does know about the subject matter on which he writes, but it may make more sense to check out his website for $10 rather than spend the $30 for his book (or rather, 273 pg. website ad).

this book was a terrible disappointment. bought the book with the thought it contained actual "cures". well i found that it did not. it will tell you to visit his website. when you visit the website, you need to join. then pay $9.95 per month to get the information that i was led to believe was in the $30.00 book.. just go to the website if you really want the information. [...] join for the month and see if you want it. save yourself the thirty bucks.. wish i did.

just another snake oil salesman...

I purchased this book, like everyone else, expecting to read the "Natural Cures They Don't Want You To Know About." Unfortunately all I read was about how everything we eat is poisoning us, and if I want to know how to fix it buy a subscription to his website. So I did, however when I got on the "private member's only page" there was NO INFORMATION WHATSOEVER. It just says that the website is still in the launching stages, and there will be more information "soon." So I tried to cancel my "subscription" but nobody has contacted me, although the automated email back to me says that someone will contact me "in a few days." Over a week later nobody has contacted me. Absolutly misleading, and disappointing. DO NOT PURCHASE!! I would rate zero stars if it was an option.

How I wish I had come to this site first. I wasted $30 plus shipping on this book and as it turned out it kept telling me to go the website beause he COULDN'T tell you about it in his book. Not without making even MORE money that is. He is right. It IS all about the money. Including how much he is making on this book. And then when I tried to load the website with the login NOTHING came up.

I am SO disappointed and I hate to think of others that are not feeling well such as myself and get taken in by this book. Pay MORE money to get what I SHOULD have gotten in the first book. I don't think so.

All this book does is tell you about things that are bad for you.The author claims that the government and the FDA will not permit him to tell the reader about ANY cures for Anything! But for some reason, the author will be able to tell you all of the cures that you thought you were getting in this book on his website. FOR A $10 MONTHLY FEE!!!! How is it possible for other authors to tell you about alternative medicine, but this author can't? IM TRULY DISAPPOINTED BY THIS $35 PURCHASE. Save your money and find the information else where since you wont find it here. Im going to try to contact the author for my money back for the misleading advertising he has done in his t.v. special and in the description of this book.But I have a feeling that I wont get it.
