5.0 out of 5 stars Review Big, write small, Feb. 5 2009
A real way of thinking and how to treat people that leads to success. The book is well-written, easy to understand, and well-researched.

There are many great points made throughout the book, but it also is easy to take a few small ideas and apply them to everyday results.

Here are a couple of examples I use now. You'll find your own when you read this book.

How do you eat an elephant? Same as anything else, one bite at a time.

If it was worth doing the first time, it probably deserves one reinvention. If reinventing it doesn't work, let it go.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Book and Great Advice, Sept. 6 2008
I read this book with the intention of seeing if there was something I could learn to help my sisters and a friend who are diabetic. I found what Dr. Barnard had to say just made sense, so I've adopted the changes he recommended with results that I've noticed almost immediately.

Dr. Barnard's approach is based on scientific results, is practical to implement and is easier to do than you might think at first. He has a great writing style, doesn't preach anything, and doesn't promote anything he doesn't have evidence of. I found that really refreshing.

If you are concerned about diabetes or heart health, read this book and give it a shot. Good luck!
