Explains the science well, but is also offensive!
on August 30, 2010
I loved the beginning of this book as it explained the science of how breathing works, and why breathing differently really affects your whole being (not just believe it because I said so, but how oxygen affects your cells, and how to make it most effective at getting to them). However, I did find it offensive how the author kept referring to mouth breathers as "disgusting" since I was a mouth breather most of my life due to not having sinus cavities (I had to have them opened through surgery, it was impossible for me to get enough oxygen by breathing through my nose!). While it inspired me to continue breathing through my nose, it also forced me to put the book down before finishing it since I was so offended about his strong view against mouth breathers. He could have said it so much nicer, and should be a little more understanding since breathing through your mouth isn't as much of a "sin" as he makes it out to be!
