About the Author

David Wolfe (b. August 6, 1970) is a rising author, lecturer, and personality in the fields of natural health, beauty, and nutrition. Wolfe was among the first to bring superfoods such as raw and organic cacao (chocolate) beans/nibs, butter, and powder, goji berries, maca extract, and cold-pressed coconut oil into general distribution in North America. The author of bestselling North Atlantic titles on raw food and healthy lifestyles, Wolfe has given over 1,500 health lectures and seminars worldwide and hosts at least six health, fitness, and adventure retreats each year at various centers around the world. Wolfe is the son of two medical doctors, and holds degrees in law, mechanical and environmental engineering, and political science, as well as a master's in living-food nutrition. In keeping with his commitment to a sustainable planet and lifestyle, Wolfe is the founder of the non-profit Fruit Tree Planting Foundation, whose goal is to plant 18 billion fruit trees on planet Earth. David is a health coach to Hollywood producers and celebrities as well as some of the world's leading business people and entrepreneurs. In 2004, Wolfe starred as "Avocado" in the reality television show Mad Mad House, which aired on the Science Fiction Channel, and since that time he has become an underground celebrity with inspired and informative clips on YouTube.

I'm not finished yet, but this book I love. I've learned so much about the chemicals in foods and about how these chemicals are affecting us. The superfoods in this book helps give us choices and David describes there orgins and uses so well to help us lead the best health in our life :)

I really should've heeded the other 2-star review before purchasing this book.

While I expected a book on "superfoods" based on the title, like the other 2-star review said, it only gets into 10 superfoods, with some honourable mentions as well. The problem is that I was expecting more traditional "superfoods", like sweet potato, quinoa, broccoli, ground flax or chia, etc. The 10 superfoods mentioned in the book are:

Goji berries, cacao, maca, bee products, spirulina, AFA blue-green algae, marine phytoplankton, aloe vera, hempseed, and coconuts.

He goes into a lot of detail about each one which is great, but seriously look at this list. If you're just starting out looking to improve your diet with some superfoods, this book is not going to be particularly helpful.

I also own SuperFoods HealthStyle which I wasn't totally thrilled with either, (I don't even know how I came to own it and recently found it in my basement) but it's a much better book on superfoods than this. I'd probably give that one 3 stars. I'm still looking for a good and comprehensive book on the subject.

If you're looking for a book on those particular 10 items, you probably won't be disappointed. If you're looking for a good reference guide on superfoods for beginners, this isn't it. To the author (if you ever happen to read this review), if you are so inclined, please write that book. I'm sure it would have a much wider audience than this one.

Updated February 1, 2014: Still looking for a great book on healthy foods? Check out "The 150 Healthiest Foods on Earth: The Surprising, Unbiased Truth about What You Should Eat and Why" by Jonny Bowden. By far the BEST book I have found!

David Wolfe is an inspiration to me. :)

I have not read any other (Superfood) books on this topic so I have nothing to play it against. But his research is thorough, and I have no doubt about it's usefulness. Even if at the very least as an introduction to the great world of self healing through foods, it's well owning. :)

This is a really good read. I of course try to pass on this wealth of knowledge to my loved ones as I learn more. I did meet with some resistance about the information provided about the percentages contained in certain foods. My brother in law is a lab tech and mentioned that in order to get government approved results regarding the percentages of substances that a superfood contains is a very stringent process. I was wondering how David gets these results. I want more ammunition for our next conversation. Thank you . I love the book.
