This is a eye opening personal account of how sugar - specifically the refinement of sugar - has nearly killed the author, and changed history. Once the author moves from his personal history, which is important as a baseline he then dives into the history of sugar itself which is fascinating and juicy stuff! He also goes into what refining sugar does to the body. He is out to save lives. He will tell you that from the beginning. This isn't a dry textbook read, it isn't a how to program exactly, but it is a refreshing look at something that has been able to get surprisingly quiet in the age of diabetes. Don't let the published date keep you from reading this book - it is still very relevant today.
