A calorie is really not a calorie.
You know... There are many books out there talking about health, weight loss and calories. However, it is hard to find one that is based on research and easy to understand at the same time.
That is what you find when you read Lagakos' book!
Thanks Bill for writing that!!!!
But with a little more time and care it could have been much better. I knocked one star off for lacking much original information beyond what is already out there and knocked another off for the total lack of editing. The book is full of typos. Multiple examples of "too much calories" and the like. Some sentences & paragraphs are repeated end to end. Also the whole book could have done with professional editing to make it flow better and to give chapters more impact.
