"Dr. Papas has written a gem of a book, packed with fascinating facts and advice on how to use vitamin E to save your life and improve your health. I have never seen a better book on a major vitamin anywhere. "-- Jean Carper, author of "Miracle Cures, Stop Aging Now!, Food Your Miracle Medicine, " and "The Food Pharmacy" "It is too early to conclude that vitamin E has all the beneficial effects attributed to it, but even if only 25% of current expectations were to be fulfilled, vitamin E would become an important weapon against a range of chronic diseases. The book is not simply scientific and education but also a please to read."-- Dimitrios Trichopoulos, MD, Vincent L. Gregory Professor of Cancer Prevention and Professor of Epidemiology"I can only most heartily recommend finding the time to read it....Practicing physicians who have to deal with nutritional problems related to diseases such as diabetes and atherosclerosis, should find this book particularly useful as a quick reference source."-- Marvin L. Bierenbaum, M.D., Director, Kenneth L. Jordan Heart Foundation and Research "We heartily recommend Dr. Papas' book to all of our nutritionally savvy listeners. Cardiology will take notice as the use of tocotrienols is destined to have a positive effect for all patients who wish to prevent and treat heart disease."-- Deborah A. Ray, M.T. (ASCP) and Donald J. Carrow, M.D., hosts of "Here's To Your Health ""Dr. Papas has been a leader in the field of antioxidants and Vitamin E specifically over the past two decades. As a scientist he knows the "real stuff" concerning antioxidants. He has a unique gift of being able to takevery complex scientific information and express it in ways that can be very understanding to the general reader who is interested in the current information around nutrition and antioxidants. The Vitamin E Factor is a book that should be on the bookshelves of all individuals who are "nutrition savvy" and interested in using the best of the latest scientific information to improve their health and that of their loved ones. "The Vitamin E Factor "talks about the extraordinary progress that has been made over the past three decades and the understanding of vitamin E specifically and other antioxidants that influence the prevention against age related diseases. I strongly recommend "The Vitamin E Factor" as a trusted resource in implementing a health protection program using antioxidant nutrition as a part of the program."-- Jeffrey S. Bland, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer of HealthComm International, Inc. ..".excellent reference book for all scientific questions in connection with vitamin E and which an interested lay personmight be eager to know more about.Thanks to the bibliography detailed in every chapter, it is quite easy for the interested reader to become more engagedin the in-depth scientific aspects of the vitamin E factor. Additionally, all this makes Andreas M. Papas' book a kind ofencyclopedia for people with an interest in the vitamin E research.-- Dr. Juergen Reimann, Chairman, Hermes Institute for Health Research, Munich, Germany""The Vitamin E Factor" has a very valuable scientific content presented with the lightness of a fairy-tale. It covers, in a comprehensive way, the most modern areas of research on vitamin E, from the basic science to applied nutrition. However it isnever confusing, since its graphic presentation allows the readers to choose and capture what is interesting to them. I recommend the book to my colleagues, to all my students and also to my family."-- Angelo Azzi, Ph.D., Professor and Director, Institute of Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, University of Bern""The Vitamin E Factor" is wonderful because it teaches people at all levels. As a doctor, I learned so much from this book. Dr. Papas makes the biochemistry practical and sensible. Yet my patients enjoy it too. They can now easily understand why vitamin E works, and how to read vitamin labels and evaluate different vitamin E products. There is also a wonderful chapter about the nature of scientific investigation and the burden of proof that will be enlightening to everyone. Highly recommended! -- Daniel Cosgrove, M.D. Director, WellMax Clinic, Palm Springs, CA ..".an excellent job. The book is easy to read and entertaining and supported by extensive literature. It will be useful not only for the general public but also for anyone interested in the role of vitamin E in health and nutrition."-- Nesrin Kartal Ozer, Ph.D., Professor of Biochemistry, Faculty of Medicine, Marmara University, Istanbul, Turkey "Dr. Papas is more qualified than any one else to write about "The Vitamin E Factor" having been personally involved in many of the recent studies. Physicians, nutritionists, dietitians, the informed public and persons in marketing will find the book most informative."-- Artemis P. Simopoulos, M.D., President, The Center for Genetics, Nutrition and Health ..".a very readable, comprehensive and practical book on vitamin E that does not compromise on scientific facts.

One question I have, though, is why doesn't Amazon do a better job preparing a book for Kindle? I'm not sure I've ever - in the many, many Kindle versions I've purchased - seen a copyright page of a book. I think that's an egregious omission. I can't believe they have not improved on that over the years.
