You Can't Know a Book by its Cover July 4 2011
By Nathanael Greene - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
I originally purchased this book when it was first published in 1994, and have begrudgingly kept this book all these years, through my periodic culling of my library. When I looked at this book yesterday for the first time in years, I conclusively realized for the first time that this book contains exactly the type of "food is medicine" information I am keenly interested in. I needed those 15 years to educate myself to the point when I could truly appreciate and acknowledge the intrinsic quality of this book. My hunch was right to retain this book.

This book's reasoning is very accessible for readers, and its text is cogent and insightful

This book's "Hot Hundred" selection of certain foods is an inspired and highly informative - if not brilliant - compositional act, and the author's reasoning for selecting the "Hot Hundred" provides an instructive method which people can employ as a starting point in selecting any foods, as nutritional "medicine."

I have a couple of good books on the subject of nutrition, but this book takes a "food is medicine" angle. This book's author is a registered pharmacist, which explains his book's unique "food is medicine" perspective, and the credentials this author has to write about that unique "food is medicine" perspective.

This book's first, 1994 edition, is published on high-quality paper, which enhances the text of this extremely deserving book's high attractiveness.
