For a laymen like me, this book was a mouthful. Yet, the author did an excellent job to introduce the medical terminology and the concepts, gradually, as you progress, and by the time I was through the book, I was surprised as to how much I had learned. I certainly will go back to it periodically so I don't loose what I've learned.
I think that this book is well worth buying and studying. It provides a lot of valuable advice that you can use to maintain and improve your health in a number of ways.
Thumbs up for Professor Sapolsy!
