This book came highly recommended as being superior to those of such nutrition and health gurus as Deepak Chopra and Peter d'Adamo. And in truth, the information presented is fascinating. A lot is common sense, and a lot more is proven by years of study when Dr. Tombak was the head of the Center for Health Sciences in Moscow. Unfortunately, the text was translated either so quickly or so poorly (or a combination of both) that the cumbersome and awkward language is a constant distraction. If it is possible to read with a strong Eastern European accent, this book will make it happen. The simplest grammar rules are disregarded completely, and the translator confuses words such as "lose" and "loose" on a regular basis. (In fact, the cover even boasts a section on "How to Loose Weight!") Dr. Tombak seems to have a wonderful, conversational tone to his writing that peeks through the bad translation every now and then. I'd love to read a better version of this book, as I think I could embrace the information more readily if only it were presented more effectively.
Another interesting book. I think you really need to read both of his books together. I have the other one listed on here. Anyone else read or reading them? Some more different ideas. Some may actually work. Impressive. Again out of the box thinking here by this author.
