I simply love that book: the tone, the information, the way the book is structured, easy to read. It has become my favorite book on the subject to date (I do have quite a few books).

This book was a life saver when I found out I had a Gluten Sensitivity. If you buy only one book for your Gluten free family this should be it !

The ultimate GF guide June 11 2010
By Bryan T. Van Noy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Don't let the "For Dummies" moniker fool you. Typically, you find so much mis-information online and in other published books relating to gluten-free advice, it's refreshing to read such a well-researched, vibrant, accurate, and, dare I say, inspiring game plan for embarking on a lifelong gluten-free journey. No stone is left unturned, and many myths are dispelled - with an ample dose of wit and humor.

Most gluten-free books are clinical, boring, and dry. This one is fun, whimsical, positive, and energetic. You feel like the author is truly optimistic about the gluten-free diet being the key to optimal health. No gf book I've read paints such an accurate, in-depth and rosy picture.

Solid information on gluten free diet June 1 2012
By John Turner - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
As the author of Simple Gluten Free Living I have read a fair number of books on gluten free cooking and living, this is one of the good ones. A solid introduction to living a gluten free lifestyle, plenty of advice and some very good recipes. Very useful section on eating out.

Very helpful info May 11 2012
By Linda Conditt - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am not celiac, but am gluten-intolerant. This easy to understand guide got me on the right track and saved a lot of time on what to do, lists of items to avoid and those to include and where to go.

Outstanding! I'm So Glad This Was The Book I Bought! July 8 2012
By Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I've had a recent diagnosis of Gluten Intolerance and I was looking for a good book to teach me what I need to know to avoid wheat. I was completely overwhelmed with all the choices of books on "Gluten Free" living. However, having had excellent luck with other "Dummies" Books, I decided to get this one. I am SO glad I did!

This book is totally comprehensive. It covers everything from getting the diagnosis to recognizing covert gluten ingredients to how to change your favorite recipes to make them gluten free and so much more.

I expected to need to buy another book or two after this one to get a complete education on gluten free living, but now I don't need to - this book really taught me everything I needed to know.

It is kind of scary to find out you have to stop eating wheat for the rest of your life - it can seem so overwhelming because wheat feels like it is in EVERYTHING at times. This book broke it down and made the lifestyle MUCH more managable for me.

She also has a really good chapter on dealing with negative feelings regarding this kind of diagnosis. I have not dealt with the negative feelings she describes [my health has improved SO vastly that I can honestly say I don't miss wheat at all!], but I think that chapter would be incredibly helpful for people who ARE struggling with their diagnosis.

The other thing I loved about this book is that it is so readable. The author is a great writer - she is witty, she includes little anecdotes from her life to help you understand what she's teaching, and the book is really entertaining to read. I was very afraid that it might be dry and "medical text book" type reading, but it is not at all. It is a fun, enjoyable read.

I have already loaned out my copy of this to one gluten intolerant friend and I've purchased a second copy and given it to another friend who was recently diagnosed with Celiac. From now on, this book will be my go-to gift for all friends dealing with any gluten related illness. It is so helpful!

Thank you for writing this book Ms. Korn! You have helped me and my family so incredibly much!

Some Misinformation / Good suggestions for laypersons without celiac but not good enough for true celiacs Feb. 12 2013
By E. C. Hart - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
As a RN with dermatitis herpetiformis (celiac with overt skin manifestations), I can say with complete authority that a celiac cannot use beauty products with any type of gluten - contrary to the misinformation in this book. As a person with a background in biology and chemistry, I am lucky enough to know what those are...(FYI - They are not always listed as 'wheat.')

Dietary restrictions set forth in this book are not enough to keep a celiac healthy. There is more hidden gluten in food than what this book would have one believe. Just because it says "gluten free" does not necessarily mean it is safe to consume. 'Gluten free' Oats, even if made in a dedicated factory, still have proleins to which celiacs react. In addition, quinoa is now being looked at as unsafe. A simple Pubmed search quickly reveals that (perhaps after personal experience of being horribly 'glutened' by it after heeding the suggestions in this book.)

The book does not touch on cross-reactivity or other relevant dietary considerations. (i.e. celiacs should be very careful to not eat genetically modified corn and soy. Furthermore, some SMART experts say celiacs should just avoid all grains.)

In addition, I do not think this book was written by someone with celiac who knows the pathophysiology of it or how to handle living with it. It might be worth a perusal at the library. For more information on celiac, get Celiac: A Hidden Epidemic after first looking at the National Library of Medicine online and celiac.org.
