Broad but Shallow Survey
on October 29, 2000
They cover a lot of ground but don't really seem to understand what they're talking about. For example, l-arginine is covered but they fail to mention that it may be most useful to vegatarians who may lack this amino acid found largely in meat diets. What really disappointed me was a lack of convincing first-hand discussions and a healthly skepticism. I'd expect anyone who recommended a love potion to have least tried it themselves! There is no clue that they have done so. They should have given the reader a better, more realistic idea of what to expect. Take yohimbe, for example. It's a very strong herb that works but with significant downsides- one does not come away with an understanding of the complexity of the experience. There are better books on the subject!
