Book title notwithstanding, Gittleman makes clear in her introduction that salt is a necessary part of the human diet. It's the kind of salt and the amount we take in that concerns her--whether it comes from your saltshaker or your bathwater. Organized topically, her 501 "tips" run the gamut from low-salt recipes and the nutritional scoop on transfats and MSG to lessons in label reading. Her brand-specific suggestions will make shopping easier. Cooks, however, will have a harder time, as recipes are scattered through the text, with most chapters containing one or two. Having pen and paper at hand should neatly solve the problem as well as be of value for taking notes on the wealth of concisely delivered information Gittleman provides. The organization may be problematic, but this is both enlightening and practical. Stephanie Zvirin

The book also contains a number of low-salt recipes scattered throughout (at least 50). In addition, Gittleman discusses the various types of salt/sodium and gives recommendations about how to avoid unnecessary processed sodium in favor of healthier (and tastier) natural salt. The author gives numerous suggestions about low-sodium products that can be purchased in stores or on-line. I have a number of low-salt cookbooks, but this book is the best in combining recipes with solid suggestions. A real winner, and I look forward to using these suggestions to further reduce my sodium intake.
Also, this book did not leave the reader at a loss of what to do with the information they just recieved. Gittleman offers numerous tips and low-sodium or sodium free recepies that can be used to make a healthier diet for those in need of a change. Another great aspect to this book was that if your really interested in changing your diet,but you don't know where to find the foods that are suggested, a resources section is included, with names of and numbers to the stores that supply what you need. So, if it is change that your looking for, do it with "Get the Salt Out."
