I wish this book had been out back in 2008 when I was looking desperately looking for and needing this information.. since I still needed it, I am glad it arrived. This book has so much invaluable information. Some of the physiological blood, body chemistry information went over my head, but there is so much information in this book that this aspect is minor. This high tech information makes this book very fascinating for another type of reader with a different type of background. So anyone who is interested in having information about bacteria, whether the self seeking health oriented person looking for personal solutions to their own dysfunctions or the professional seeking information to help clients. This book is excellent. This is one of my bookshelf reference books that I will keep for the rest of my life.

This book has come out with great timing because most of the strains he talks about are now availalbe on the market in individualized supplemental form. Meaning, it is possible to get a probiotic with just one beneficial bacteria vs being stuck with probiotic formulas that have several or many beneficial bacteria. As a result it is possible to individually taylor the beneficial bacteria to very specific individual needs vs the "one size fits all" probiotics of the past.

I also have the Oral Probiotics book that he has also written. Although a bit of the information is repetitive, it still has invaluable additional information. It is a great additional complement.

This book is very educational. It is clearly written for the layperson. With the average North American diet there are so many factors affecting gut flora. It is wonderful to have such a clearly written missive to help one decide how to get some help.

This is a tremendous book for the person who has a desire to learn about our bodies immune system and how it keeps us healthy, wealthy and wise. It does require the reader to have a basic understanding of the biological processes that the human body goes through and to follow these interactions that the immune system uses.

I think it is GREAT.

I read this book with great interest. The author has done an excellent job in researching this topic and I believe he has a thorough understanding of probiotics. This book has really increased my understanding of the role of living organisms in human health and how critical they are to our wellbeing. I really enjoyed the practical aspects detailing the different probiotics and cultured foods and how to effectively use them. Many of my questions on this topic have been answered by reading this book. A must read.

There is a lot of information inside the book about probiotics. It pretty much covers all points necessary in order to understand what the bacterias are all about. This was a medium read for me. There is a lot of science in the book. This book identifies that probiotics help with digestion, elimination, and... the big one... the immune system. Read the book.
