Then I started thinking...I ought to know more about what I am putting into my body. Spirulina gets results, but it also has an odd (not unpleasant, just odd) flavor to it upon ingestion. I found it incredible that such healthful substances could almost seem like a "secret society", considering the nonexistent media coverage I see in magazines or other outlets. I like to understand the details, clinical tests, chemical compositions, cultural history, geographic popularity, good brands of Spirulina to buy, algae and other green foods that many health books mention, but none really dedicate themselves to in detail. Internet searches came up with sporadic information here and there, but nothing really organized or thorough.
So there goes my old standby Amazon.com. After reading the various 5 star reviews here, I bought this book in eager anticipation. This book must be good! This book will tell me all I want to know in detail about Spirulina, and much more healthful green foods I can add to my diet.
I do want to say that I think most information in this book is good, some pieces of information here and there are excellent (in terms of it is not wildly duplicated in other health books). The author is clearly well intentioned.Read more ›
Boy was I wrong. The book contains plenty about the benefits of a plethora of green foods; it's mighty convincing. Unfortunately in my case, ol Dave is preachin to the choir. I'm already a believer. What I was hoping for in this "everything-bible" was at least a few things I could put to use.
After plenty of theory, plenty of history, and case-cured stories, on page 86 I found this: "The basics on growing your own (wheatgrass) can be found on pages 171-172." Pages 171 and 172, however, are occupied by healing diet recommendations. They feature references to ten different specific health-food products ("supplements I have formulated" Dave says), with ordering information a couple pages later. Well, maybe the inability to keep track of pages goes along with the disorganization problem mentioned by another reviewer.
On page 140 (not 171) I did find a paragraph titled "Make Your Own Sprouts." Dave gave me six whole sentences about how to grow sprouts. Here's an example: "Making sprouts is easy." Thanks, Dave. He follows with a couple book recommendations if you want more information. As it happens, I do.
Dave is probably a wonderful, vigorous guy who has helped a lot of people down the road to glowing health. For all I know, maybe the publisher came up with this title and forced poor Dave to use it.
Or maybe it's me. I certainly read a lot more into that "everything you need to know" title than made it into the book.Read more ›
I've been a big fan of his articles which we have published in The Doctors' Prescription for Healthy Living and have learned more about the power of these foods to quickly improve your health, thanks to his insights. I've also appreciated the Pure Planet line of products he produces. I say this because our magazine is dedicated to highlighting the very best in the natural products industry. I have always felt their Green Kamut, Just Barley and other super green foods were among the best tasting and mixed easily. They're organic, of course; indeed, their kamut is the only of the commercial wheat grasses available that is non-hybridized.
Once you read this book, your diet will forever be improved, and so will your health! It's an important book for anybody to read, especially somebody trying to switch from a heavily meat-based diet to one that utilizes more plant foods, fibers, raw foods.
Four stars because it has some good information that could be helpful and healthful. But you'll need to read the book and pick out the useful parts while not getting caught up in the "green cult".
Two stars because it's too "religious" and "cultish" for my taste. You can get a hint about that directly from the title itself! The author obviously thinks green foods is the be-all and end-all to all of mankind's woes. Green drinks can cure anything! I'm very wary whenever I hear the religious fervor relative to anything. It's not very balanced and objective. In fact, it's very subjective.
He quotes many studies and tries to use science to back up his statements, but not in a very scientifically objective way. Most of his scientific comments are not referenced with notes to the actual studies for one thing. And he clearly picks and chooses his science to back up his philosophy.
The book also seems like a sales pitch to lead you to buying his products, which of course are the best and highest quality on the planet. No one else produces and sells green foods as good as his, if you believe his book and web site. Maybe he should give the book away free - who wants to PAY to hear a sales pitch!? I also noticed how he likes to pat himself on the back and stroke his ego, explaining how much good he's doing in the world.
So, three stars means it might be worth reading if you can ignore the obsession and just pick out some facts, and then do more research elsewhere.
