1.0 out of 5 stars Great premise, poor execution, September 13, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I had high hopes for this book. I read quite a bit but I just couldn't finish it. I can do without the soft porn aspect but what really did me is was the plot, or the lack there of. So Henry timetravels. Big deal, I couldn't figure out why I was supposed to care. A love story that is fated and ends tragically. (It was developing so slowly that after about 150 pages I went to Wikipedia to read the end)
Clare was too perfect in my opinion, beautiful, honest, kind and oh so in love with Henry. Boring.

If you want to see the premise worked out with finesse and passion watch Doctor Who Seasons 4, 5, and 6. Look for the River Song episodes. The writers freely admit to using the premise from this book but they handled it soooooooo much better!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some good some not so much, May 2, 2013
Sherri does a really good job of dealing with the emotional side of things and she is great for giving us a reality check, BUT anyone who follows her diet advice is going to find themselves taking more and more medicine over time. The whole grain/pasta/oatmeal suggestions would send my blood sugar off the charts. Since I am strongly intent on not taking more meds I will be following a plan closer to Dr Bernstein's Diabetes Solution or Atkin's Diabetes Revolution. My A1c is 5.8 so you decide if you want to actually live longer or take more meds and stick with the pasta plan.

It broke on the second day. We are so disappointed. The $10.00 postage to return it is not worth the cost. I do not recommend this toy.

5.0 out of 5 stars This book changed my life forever, May 18, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Taubes does a lot to debunk the ill used science behind lowfat high carb diets. I started this book at the middle. When I read the history of the Pima indians, how they went from their native diet to governement rations that just included flour, oil, coffee, and sugar and went to 2/3s diabetic!!!!! I started low carb that day. Fast forward six months, I was diagnosed with diabetes!!! My A1c was 6.4. Fortunately I already had the diet down pat. I skipped the ADA nutritional nonsense and went on to lose 50 pounds!!! My A1c is now 5.6 and trending downward. I don't know how anyone can rebut this. Taubes is right the diet information we have today has been politicized and oversimplified.

5.0 out of 5 stars It works really well on natural red hair too!, January 23, 2009
My hair was a dingy dark brownish strawberry blonde. I have been using the system and my hair just seems brighter, slightly redder and really shiny. Everyone thinks my hair actually looks *lighter* I love this product!

This review is from: Explode the Code 3 (Paperback)
These books really work and they are so cute your child can't help but get the point. I have used a wide variety of phonics programs for my daughter who turned out to have an auditory processing disorder and I always return to Explode the Code.

1.0 out of 5 stars This Is Nothing New, August 29, 2008
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I already knew that fats were good for me. This guy has something to sell.

A better book is Good Calories Bad Calories, or Eat Fat Lose Fat, or Nourishing Traditions.

Good Calories Bad Calories was actually the best because it explains how the last 50 years of so-called research "proving" low fat was totally rigged.

Eat Fat Lose Fat was valuable because of how Mary Enig, who is a lipid researcher explains how the big corporations tried to buy research results to prove that low fat was right.

Get off your statins and eat fat. It is the natural way to get your body to stop over producing cholesterol. And oh yes, stop the sugar and starchy carbs. You'll be shocked at the results. Also poke a finger in the eye of big pharma.

1.0 out of 5 stars Save your money, don't buy this vacuum, June 25, 2008
This vacuum always smokes, and after just one year it is smoking so bad that we are going to replace it. It clogs easily even though I have regularly maintained it. Get something different.
