10 of 10 people found the following review helpful By GF84 on Nov. 23 2009
Format: Paperback
In my opinion, after 26 years on this diet there were 3 books that came out explaining the GF diet - Jax Peter Lowell's, Dr Green's and Shelley Case's. And I must also mention Trish Thompson. Each has its own pluses and minus and direction focusing on a little bit of a different area of being GF, diagnosis, resources and how to get better. Jax's book excels at the nutrition part of the equation and from my read of it quite a while ago I still remember the ease that she wrote and explained things with! However I was already diagnosed and well settled into the gf diet, she still provided tips and hints to me that I missed when I started out on my own as none of these books existed when I was diagnosed. It is funny, light and humourous for those who are just starting out on the diet and is better suited to those in the US. Great read and very informational!

Format: Paperback
I was diagnosed celiac two years ago, and have strayed from my diet numerous times since then, because of a lack of information and a lack of a sense of importance with the diet. Jax writes about celiac disease in a clear manner illustrating her points from real life experience thereby helping one to realize the true importance of the gluten free diet. She gives resources and information that are of paramont importance to celiacs in this book helping us to fumble through a glutenous world gluten free. Thank you Jax, this book has literally changed my life.

Format: Paperback
Jax Peters Lowell has done an excellent job of providing a comprehensive resource for people with celiac disease. She mixes facts with humour and manages to make life with celiac disease seem like an adventure, rather than a curse.
Not only are the basics here (safe and unsafe foods, related medical problems, internet resources, etc.) but she also deals with the emotional side of celiac disease and its effect on relationships with family and friends. After reading the first chapter, I bought an extra copy for my father, who also has celiac disease.
For those who are newly diagnosed, I think that this book is an excellent place to start, and all celiacs can benefit from Jax Peters Lowell's take on the disease.

Ok this book does have a lot of references on helpful info but I was hoping for something different. It sits on my shelf. Perhaps I may need it in the future. I found the "Gluten Connection" much more helpful and I thought this book would be the same but it wasn't.
