“[The Diet Myth] is structured as a takedown of diet myths, but it’s much more than a self-help advice book. It’s witty, well-written and broad-ranging, littered with fascinating factoids and case studies. Spector thoughtfully explains the strengths and weaknesses of the available evidence, drawing on research on gut microbes as well as his long-running studies on the genetics of twins and his own often hilarious experiments with various diets.”
- The New York Times
“The Diet Myth is a fascinating and original look at the impact of food on our bodies, underpinned by cutting-edge research.”
- Dr. Michael Mosley, author of the #1 New York Times Betseller The FastDiet
“A concise, entertaining book that demystifies the benefits of balanced microbes through healthier eating. ”
“Tim Spector carefully explains that we are NOT what we eat, but rather that our trillions of microbial inhabitants have a thing or two to say. Lucidly written, The Diet Myth provides a first-class education about the conjunction of our microbes and our health.”
- Dr. Martin Blaser, author of Missing Microbes: How the Overuse of Antibiotics is Fueling Our Modern Plague
