“[Caulfield] thinks with an academic’s rigor and precision and knows the health maintenance territory inside out.” - The New York Times
“Caulfield’s cure for the mess we’re in is this lucid and well-researched compendium of the best-available science about diet, fitness, genetics, pharmaceuticals and alternative medicine. . . . A compelling and timely argument for science and a reminder that science is an iterative process, breakthroughs are rare, and there are no magical cures for everything.” - Julia Belluz, The National Post

The first and second chapters are available for review on the international edition. They're a total hoot, but they're also backed up by something of which Ms. Paltrow is lacking (aside from a measurable IQ): real science.
Good work, Mr. Caulfield. I'm waiting on tenterhooks for the finished version.
