About the Author
Larry Cook became a passionate advocate for natural living after reading John Robbins' revolutionary book Diet for a New America. The book changed his life – he became a vegetarian, lost 40 pounds and had more energy than ever before. Larry’s success with this lifestyle and subsequent years of research inspired him to publish two magazines devoted to natural living. He hired writers to create custom articles on a wide variety of topics he was passionate about, including the manipulation of our food supply, natural medicine, holistic dentistry and environmental toxins, to name a few. The Natural Life News & Directory – launched in 2000 – now boasts a circulation of 12,000 in Bozeman, Montana, and the EcoVision Journal – launched in 2001 – enjoyed a wide, loyal readership in Seattle, Washington until it was sold in 2002. In both cities the magazines became a trusted authority on health, environmental and other natural lifestyle issues. Larry’s current book, The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living, is an easy to assimilate encapsulation of the wide and detailed knowledge he published in his magazines. Larry studied video/film production and photography at Clover Park Vocational-Technical Institute in Tacoma, Washington, and received his bachelor’s degree from The Evergreen State College in Olympia, Washington. In addition to serving as a tireless advocate for natural living, Larry is a photographer and works as a location sound mixer in the television industry in Los Angeles.

Yes! It's all that and more! It's AMAZINGLY well organized and informative. I've been dabbling in this subject for many years and am impressed that TBG covers all the important, relevant topics to give a broad, yet thorough understanding of how to make healthy livestyle choices.
I discovered the book when I was Googling "natural/holistic dentistry", a subject upon which not much helpful information seems to have been written. TBG offers 10 pages that succinctly and effectively cover all aspects of this topic.
So, what's the flaw?? No index!! For such an information-rich book as this, an index is an indispensible, reader-friendly tool for accessing information easily. Please include an index in the next edition, at which time, I will happily add another star!
So I decided to get it for my mom, thinking that she most likely won't read it...and I'd just have to chalk it up to, "Oh well, I tried". So it came as a complete surprise that she -first of all- read it, and then was utterly ASTONISHED when I found out that she actually started implementing EVERY SINGLE suggestion in the book! :)
So then, I had to find out how it was able to make such an impact...So I was like "mom, I've told you how important getting omega oils is, like taking flax oil" she quickly quipped back "but you didn't tell me WHY!..." So, for whatever reason, the WAY in which this book was written combined with the practicality of the suggestions ...has changed my mom's health for the better. And further, has managed to shift her belief /inspired her to know that she now has an active ROLE in maintaining her own health (!) So pretty cool indeed...So, I'm actually writing this to say, thanks Mr. Cook! :)
This is the best book I have read for healthy living ideas that you can implement at your own pace. The improvement in my family's health confirms that The Beginner's Guide To Natural Living was a great investment! Danna B.
