Hundreds of pages of tables, each table split vertically across page boundaries. So we can see fruits and their serving sizes and some other data on one page and the GI and other data on the next. But looking at that second page, how do we know which row is which?
The best I came up with is to count the number of rows from the top of one page ("apples", say) down to the row you're interested in ("blueberries"), then go to the next page (which has the blueberry GI data) and count down again from the top. If you're lucky, you'll arrive at the correct row and learn something about blueberries.
Turning landscape helps a bit, because you can see two page images at once, but the two page images don't line up, so you still have to count.
Unfortunately, only the introductory prose material is included in the free sample, so you don't see the ludicrous formatting of the bulk of the book. A real rip-off.
The only reason I didn't give this 5 stars is because some things are terribly unclear. It lists whole wheat sandwich bread- ONE slice- as high (71) but doesn't say which brand they tested. There are only 25 different kinds available in my grocery store- how do I pick or avoid the right one without knowing the brand? Then it lists whole wheat country grain bread- TWO slices- as low (53) but doesn't say who makes that one either. And why in the world would they list the serving size as one slice for one bread and two slices for the other?? There are also pages of President's choice foods which aren't available anywhere near here.
I suggest to all Kindle readers to download the free sample to see if the format works for you before buying. Occasionally free is best.
