Jennie Brand-Miller, Ph.D., one of the world's leading authorities on carbohydrates and the glycemic index, has championed the GI approach to nutrition for more than twenty years. Professor of nutrition at the University of Sydney and the president of the Nutrition Society of Australia, Dr. Brand-Miller was recently awarded Australia's prestigious ATSE Clunies Ross Award for her commitment to advancing science and technology. She is one of the world's most in-demand speakers on the GI, and her laboratory at the University of Sydney is the world's foremost GI-testing center.

Kaye Foster-Powell, M. Nutr. & Diet., an accredited dietitian-nutritionist with extensive experience in diabetes management, counsels hundreds of people a year on how to improve their health and well-being and reduce their risk of diabetic complications through a low-GI diet. She is the lead author of the authoritative tables of GI and glycemic load values published in Diabetes Care.

Wasn't what I expected. I thought the book would be more thorough with a bigger variety of products. The paper it's printed on feels like newspaper, which is okay if it wasn't for the limited variety.

Should have believed first reviewer Jan. 26 2013
By grammy g - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I read the first review on here about not being able to read the print but thought I would take my chances. Luckily Amazon refunded my credit card. Next time I will pay closer attention. The previous review is correct you can enlarge the print but it is a complete blur. I have ordered the paperback instead

You will need a magnifying glass Jan. 11 2013
By George Tsanis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
1200 foods rated, but you will have a hard time reading the graphs and will most likely require a magnifying glass. On a tablet you can forget about making the screen bigger, all that does is blur out the words. Better luck on a bigger PC monitor.
Otherwise the book delivers on its promise :)

Doesn't List whole, real foods; just "store bought" prepackaged items mostly. March 19 2013
By R. Mauler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
It had a lot of "store bought" brand products listed but missed a LOT of regular, pure, unprocessed foods. I couldn't find the GI listing for a lot of items. Wasn't real happy with this book.

GLYCEMIC INDEX USERS WILL LIKE THIS. Aug. 11 2013
By LINDA MAY - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
THIS SEEMED VERY ACCURATE & PRETTY THOROUGH. THE MOST INFORMATION SEEMS TO BE ABOUT NUTRISYSTEM, THOUGH. THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN FINE, EXCEPT I WASN'T DOING THEM. I THINK, YOU PROBABLY GET THAT INFO FROM THEM WHEN YOU ACTUALLY GET THEIR MEALS. I WAS LOOKING FOR HELP FIXING MY OWN MEALS. I THINK THE LOW GLYCEMIC INDEX MAKES SENSE, BUT IT'S CONFUSING TO PUT TOGETHER ON YOUR OWN.
