By Josie Read - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I'd rather sort through thousands of journal articles, or better yet, DIE of a nutrient deficiency before spending nearly $1,000 for this book. 1 star.

HASH(0xa2bb53f0) out of 5 stars Whatever the content, not worth $1K Oct. 2 2011
By Spam Loather - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A thousand dollars?! A thousand dollars for a book about dietary supplements??? And $2K for a used copy?
Whatever the content of this book, its price earns it one star.

This is insane. There is nothing in such a book that couldn't be found for free on Wikipedia or in the rare case of some product with real effects, via Google.

For natural products like herbs, most of their useful properties were figured out centuries ago. These are available much more affordably in sources like Maud Grieve's "A Modern Herbal" or John Lust's "The Herb Book". For non-natural substances, read as much as you can, for instance in books like Sheldon Hendler's "PDR for Nutritional Supplements", and be skeptical; many claims supported by early studies have been shown to be false in later, bigger, more well controlled studies. In all cases, whether natural, non-natural, or unnatural, be skeptical. Especially when they're presented in a $1K book.
