Mr. Wiener's book exceeds all three hopeful expectations. He uses solid scientific evidence as a foundation for all his recommendations; there is no slick, one-weird-trick mentality. The book is written in a breezy style that is also clear and concise, avoiding the unbearable fluff and filler that plague the majority of books about diet. The author pulls no punches, but has some nicely turned punch lines. Most importantly, this book is helpful in establishing a practical plan that leads to a healthy outcome. And the author never condescends to the reader.
The title of the book, while absolutely correct in stating what the book is about, seems a bit dry; but maybe a title with more pizzazz would appeal to the wrong kind of reader; the one who prefers nonsensical junk science. In a word, this book hits the nutritional nail on the head with surgical precision. Buy this book and get off the endless diet book merry-go-round. And by applying its 16-word principles, one can very likely avoid climbing back on the merry-go-round.
