4.0 out of 5 stars Good news and bad news...., January 25, 2012
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: The Real Truth About Sugar-- Dr. Robert Lustig's Video Lecture "Sugar: The Bitter Truth" (Kindle Edition)
...the good news is this book does a sterling job of clarifying the entertaining, but often bewildering 90 min video that many of us have seen on Youtube and cable TV.

The bad news is that it makes it all too clear how simple it could be for Type 2 Diabetes and obesity to be avoided, by explaining in clear, every day English the horrific amount of sugar included in so much of the average American's diet.

(Ok, so that's not really bad news, unless you are the CEO of Coca Cola!)

Overall this is the perfect companion to Dr. Lustig's lecture, and a real eye opener as a standalone book even if you haven't seen or don't plan on seeing it.

Reading the two reviews (pro & con) it seems this book is a "dumb down" version of Lustig's book. If that is what you are looking for then you will probably like it. If, like me, you want more information and can digest it then you definitely don't want this book.
