My Dr. recommended that I get this book and read it to help me better understand my recent diagnosis of Celiacs stating it was a most valuable resource to have.
What can I say? If you have Celiacs, an intollerance or have chosen a Gluten Free lifestyle, this is the must have book to have in your collection. Shelley provides a ton of information, recipes, shopping tips, and companies that make gluten free foods and her experience with them.
I'm looking forward to seeing what her new book has in store when it's released sometime this fall.

Shelley Case knows GF. She lives GF. She is internationally known for her GF expertise and most of all she communicates with the people who are down in the trenches eating a GF diet to find out what is best and what they recommend. This has only increased the validity and popularity of her internatonal best seller Gluten-Free Deit: A Comprehensive Resource Guide. She coveres everything in her book - from getting onto the diet, some balanced recipes, where to shop in North America, grains and how they work in your body, how best to maintain a GF diet that is nutritional - I could go on. I have purchased every edition of her book - her current edition is 2008 and it is currently so under [...] in both Canadian and US dollars. She even has a fund raising component that if you buy a box of books you get a discount and can sell them to your chapter as a fund raising too. She is giving back to the community. You should try and hear her speak - despite talking at the rate of a train, she has a vast knowledge and will answer every personal question to the best of her ability. She is a true gem in the Celiac world.

Shelley Case is known throughout North America as the "celiac expert". A review of her revised and expanded Gluten-Free Diet book lists 3100 gluten-free specialty foods and a directory of over 270 American and Canadian Companies that support this community and creatively supply celiac patients with food that fits their diets. Meal plans, recipes and cooking hints are all part of the book and certainly helped me as I tried to understand what can and cannot be part of a celiac diet. Great resource book and one that you pick up frequently for clarity around food ingredients. I have learned more about the gluten-free diet from it than any other single resource. It is a must for the celiac resource library in any home or institution that educates around the disease.
