I think when Paul wrote this book, he's trying to get us to think on our own. It was the first raw food book I read, and it got me on track. If you follow the steps he gives on things to give up, you come to a lot of your own conclusions and have heightened awareness. I have read other raw food books that are very angry or lack information. I always have thought Paul is very wise and honest. I thought the book was a lot of fun and gave me incentive to keep trying. I do believe some of his views have changed since this book was written.

Paul Nison has some very interesting and valid points and I would consider some of the information and advice as good. Was not fond of how he uses and illustrates his boxer characters to teach his methods. It got predictable and boring. Hoping to resell this book.

I have been reading Paul on my Facebook page and I like what he has to say. So being curious I went to Amazon to look up the book. I paid a great price for it. It came as described, and shipped well. The book is excellent! Easy to read, and interesting. Seriously considering going raw for a great percentage of my meals.

First off, let me begin with, I opened this book with no pre-conceived ideas of the Raw Diet. I was mildly intrigued, having read several blogs by individuals who were gradually immersing their dietary lifestyle into this phenom.

That said, I found the book utterly worthless.

The drivel which flows from Mr. Nison is of such utter nonsense that I am surprised anyone would even contemplate his lifestyle!

His premise that an individual can go raw was one which I might have pursued. It certainly intrigued me. However, his utter disregard for medical science astounds me!

Mr. Nison lumps medicine into that category of malpractice of the mind! He states such nonsense as going to see a doctor is inviting one self to get sick.

"All doctors and medicine are designed to make you sick."

While I can somewhat agree with the doctor who is in a general practice, in that they are trained to treat the symptom rather than the cause, that is not true of a homeopath.

Then, nutrition is basically set aside, as individuals are enlightened about "mono" fats and fruits and vegetables.

And the one that really set my teeth on edge???

Emaciated and skeletal are all part of the plan! Nison even shows photographs of individuals who could easily appear as poster mascots for the holocaust!

I certainly cannot add my endorsement to this book in any way!

However, let me say this... the raw diet as I had perceived it, was one that would provide the individual with all necessary nutrients, yet in a raw, natural form. That being said, I am willing to seek out more information on that lifestyle.

I simply will not be following the advice of Mr. Nison.

My advice?

Don't waste your time, or your money, on this book.

I got this book originally from the library. It is a very good book. It is simple to read and written by a real person. The author makes it fun to change your diet by giving you a story to play with where you have a team of characters that help you and a team that tries to thwart you. It puts a face behind the pitfalls and the strengths that you are confronted with as you change to a healthier life style. It makes it easier for success than I would otherwise have had. It is working for me and I'm not an easy person to change.

The book has really good information, I especially found the interviews very interesting. However the whole time I was reading this book I was as annoyed as if I were in some Japanese Pachinko store. I am not sure why Mr. Nison felt he had to ruin the strong, informative continents with childish gimmicks. But if youre into that sort of read . . . I highly recommend it.
