Good resource, but don't buy it for your kindle
on February 22, 2010
There is a lot of information in this book. The information here is not new, but it is presented in an organized and fun format. Some may find there is too much information. For non-medical women, this is a great resource, but if you come from a medical background and know about hormones and endocrinology, you will find it over simplified. It's divided into different sections so you can skip around and read the part you are more interested in at the moment. The worksheets are useful and eye-opening. The idea of a 12 week planner is great, but to do that part of it will take some effort on your part, you will have to be committed to writing things down regularly. If you are expecting an easy, quick fix, or a new revelation, this book is not for you. If you want to understand the science behind what is happening to your body and what you can do about it, this is a great resource. It boils down to the basics: Eat right, exercise regularly and take care of yourself. ***IMPORTANT*** I would not recommend buying this book for your Kindle, there are worksheets and "diaries" which you won't be able to fill in and additionally, the charts and graphs cannot be read even when the font on the kindle is enlarged to the largest it can go. If you want to get the most out of this book, get the print version.
