While there's nutritional infomation included (the basics--calories, fat, fiber, sodium, etc), some of it strikes me as a little off as well. There are some recipes that produce very, very low calorie smoothies. We all know that of course fruits and vegetables are lower in calories, but still--if you multiply the stated number of calories per serving by the number of servings, some of the recipes still appear to contain way fewer calories than are in the ingredients. Additionally, there are a couple of recipes where the calorie count per 1 cup serving is over 1,000 (obviously, this can happen based on ingredients, but still--be careful if you're watching calories or, in some cases, fat).

One other thing was the overuse of iceberg lettuce, romaine and watercress in the recipes. Iceberg is probably the worse green ever (if there is such a concept!) because it's the one insipid lettuce you'll find in every supermarket, salad bar, takeaway sandwich etc because it's basically tasteless and mostly water... and not very green!
Iceberg is good for crisp and crunch in a wrap but the whole idea of green smoothies is to be able to consume large amounts of dark leafy greens for maximum benefits- in an easy fast tasty simple way with a minimum of ingredients that are easily accessible.
Do not want to be critical but I see this book as appealing to the mainstream and therefore may be a bit misleading eg with the choice of ingredients. But on the upside the more people who blend and mend it the better!
So to me, this is a good book to start out with or reference to to see what good combinations there are with what produce you have. However, it surprised me they had harder veggies like cucumber or carrots in some recipes. They ask that you peel them, and so I tried this. You can blend these veggies that way, but there's a ton of fiber that makes it more like a thick grainy soup. It also takes quite a while to peel your veggies, so the quickness of a smoothie turns into making a big meal. So I'd stick with a juicer for those harder foods, mostly veggies, and use a blender for leafy veggies and soft foods. I think the 'everything' series tried to make everything possible with smoothies, but sometimes a juicer is better-suited.
