“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

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
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.

Only thing that bugged me a bit is that the author seems to have an unrealistic view that the only way to achieve financial success in the US or Canada is through a university degree... that is simply not true, many careers in trade offers stability, high salaries (just look how much an HVAC tech makes! $$$) and good benefits. Also, I felt that the tone was paternalistic at times.
Overall I give 4/5 stars and recommend it 👍🏻
