This book has EVERYTHING!,
This review is from: The Juicing Bible (Paperback)
This is a great book. It is much more in-depth than your average juicing book. It's separated into quite a few sections, ranging from simple juices to recipes for using the leftover pulp.
It starts off with a mini-encyclopedia listing herbs, fruits and veggies which can be used in your juicing. Offered is a quick summary of each item, how to use it in juicing, and health benefits of each (good for digestion, cooling, antispasmodic, etc.). Then, there's a section on common health illnesses which lists juices (and other juice-type items, all of which have recipes in the book) that may help the ailments, as well as dietary tips, foods and herbs that may help the disorder, and some lifestyle changes to try.
The rest of the book has the following sections:
1. Fruit Juices
2. Vegetable Juices
3. Cocktails -- these are juices with a little something extra, like yogurt, milks, spices, etc.
4. Frozen treats -- most of these recipes utilize leftover pulp from juices
5. Roughies -- these are actual food recipes, using the juicing pulp from other recipes
6. Smoothies -- uses juices and frozen fruit
7. Digestive Aids and Cleansers -- the title section speaks for itself
8. Milk substitutes -- recipes for nut milks, apricot milk, fig milk, etc.
9. Coffee substitutes
10. Teas and Tonics -- these recipes are mostly for medicinal teas which are geared towards alleviating body ailments and/or aiding and encouraging natural bodily functions and processes.
For those of you looking for a straight forward book that just offers simple, basic juicing recipes, this is not for you; all of the extras will definitely turn you off. But for those of you looking for something that goes beyond your standard carrot-apple combination, this is sure to please. This book really goes above and beyond your typical juicing guide, with options for those that want to add a little more to their juices and really utilize every part of produce used.

Your comment was very detailed and much appreciated. I am a low fat raw vegan and did not want to purchase a book that did not speak to my food style. Thank you!

I don't know about this book, but if you're looking for a good resource, you might try Treat Your Own Hand and Thumb Osteoarthritis.
