The content in the book might be useful to someone that is an absolute beginner to cooking and healthy eating. However, I honestly think there are better books out there to teach you those things. Darya's "angle" is her training as a scientist, but in the book (and on her site these days) that is not obvious at all. In addition, the book is rather poorly written, not to mention condescending and just generally irritating in its voice. Most of the material is common sense, and I came away from the book wondering if I had learned anything at all (note: I can't think of anything). I'm far from a nutritionist (though I am a scientist), so I was surprised that an entire book could be written out of fluff/common sense.
Overall, I don't recommend unless you know nothing about cooking/feeding yourself. Even then, read her website for free and save the money.
Another thing she says is that if didn't like vegetables as a kid then you can just teach yourself to love them especially if you buy them from a farmers market. If it was only that simple. I'm lucky because I never grew up hating vegetables, but some people just really don't like the taste of certain vegetables and they are likely to have an even stronger flavor from the farmers market. She also has a recipe called "How to Make Brussels Sprouts That Aren't Gross". I take exception to the assumption in that title. I have always liked Brussels and never thought they were gross. But I can guarantee that there are people that would never eat them no matter what.
The fact is some people can't afford to buy good food or don't have access to good food. I think the author comes across as elitist who doesn't have real solutions to offer.

This book is a must for anyone who has been plagued by the "diet, loose weight, pile it back on, diet, loose weight pile it back on, diet..." cycle.
Oh, and did I mention that you can still eat and enjoy good food and wine?
As a diet it's a good one but if you've looked at the whole 30 this is a dumbed down version.
Would be good for someone who is new to weight management.
