This is a very good and thorough book detailing the 14 foods necessary for maintaining a healthy body and mind. Sadly my two staples, chocolate and coffee didn't make the cut but most of the other foods are things I eat on a regular basis so adding more of these things won't be a huge lifestyle change. You wouldn't think a book about 14 foods would fill a book without putting one to sleep but the author has written the book in such a way that it is easy to skim over the more detailed health benefits of each food and move on to the recipes. I skimmed initially to get a quick idea of what foods I should be focusing on and quickly scan the health benefits and later went back and read the nitty gritty details. For anyone wondering the 14 superfoods are: beans, blueberries, broccoli, oats, oranges, pumpkin, salmon, soy, spinach, tea - black & green, tomatoes, turkey, walnuts and yogurt. For more specific info. you'll need to grab a copy of the book ;)

This is the best and most informative book. In October, my Doctor recommended I go on an anti-inflamatory program of foods. I did and it was such a great thing, that I looked to see what books might be available to educated me on foods, in general, that are good for me. I like the way Steven Pratt organized the book. I will be using it for a really long time, but will try to copy the most important info, so I can put the book back into my bookshelf for others.
Very positive book, I don't believe it ever said "don't eat this food". Really no surprises (like someone mentioned, pizza and twinkies didn't make the grade), but it does go into the various micro-nutrients that no one ever heard of until recently.
