I bought the Kindle version after my hardcopy because I will be traveling and I am not able to carry a 4 pound, 877 page book. I had a hard time finding what I was looking for in the hardcopy because the foods are categorized by best nutritious foods first in each food group, not in alphabetic order. I would give this book 5 stars easily if I could just pick it up and thumb through an alphabetic list of the foods instead of going to the table of contents to find the page for the food group "Fish" page 453 to find the next table of contents with "Cod" on 484.
The Kindle version is even more difficult if not impossible to find what you are looking for. There is no "index" feature on the goto button and the first table of contents links to the first page of each food group which only has a graphic saying what page the foods are on and no link to them so you have to flip up to 300 pages in the vegetable section to get to Corn. plus there is no way to go to page 453 on the kindle because it is organized by location.
I would wait to buy the kindle version until after they make an easier way to find the content, the paperback is a great source of information and will be even better if the next version came out with and alphabetic layout.
The only bad thing it was the size of the book. I knew it was going to be big because when I bought it saw the amount of pages that it has but I really never imagined the dimensions. It doesn't bother if you are using it at home and you are not moving from place to place with it, but if you really want to take it everywhere you go, like to a trip or vacations it will definitely not be the more comfortable item to pack in your luggage.
Any way I think that this book is a must in every body’s life to start taking care of their selves, it is easy and clear so make something for yourself and buy it.
I'm a nurse, organic gardener, and health food nut. I do a lot of nutritional counseling, and I completely trust this book as a source. I've learned more from it than from all my research to date. I'm a great believer in natural healing IF it's based on solid science (which much of "internet wisdom" isn't, alas).
It's a HUGE relief to find a "BS-free" source; there is SO much crap on the internet about what's good for you and what's not - so many food fads, often fueled by people making money on them (Mercola is the worst, in my opinion). This book tells you what is backed by good science, what is likely to be true, and what we just don't know yet.
Well worth the price, to me - it's my go-to reference on nutrition.
Yay natural healing! Yay organic produce! Yay good, honest science!!!
