4-0 out of 5 stars Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements
I know there has been a lot of criticism to this book since many say that Lyle has ties to Usana. If Lyle wants to sell his book, why would he put in the book that he works with Usana, Douglas Laboratories, Life Extensions Foundations and Source Naturals, knowing that there are people who are going to think differently after reading the book. If Lyle was interested in the money of selling the book, he wouldn't have written that information in there. Plus, if Usana or Douglas Laboratories was paying Lyle money to put their products as top of the line, why would he say he works with them? Wouldn't that cause a problem with trusting the book in general?I think he wrote it down because he takes pride in the companies he works with. This is just my opinion.There is this document posted by Melaleuca called, "Getting to the bottom of the Comparative Guide to Nutritional Supplements."Melaleuca critiques the book on six pages.Anyone who has questions about the blending standards, or about the book in general should read it.
5-0 out of 5 stars Essential information
This book provides what is needed in the nutritional supplement industry--information and education. It shows the quality level of health supplements of even the most popular brands in grocery stores to the health stores. Buy this book!

5-0 out of 5 stars guide for the rest of us
Most of people don't have enough time to compare every supplements in the market nor enough knowledge to know what our body really need. What if some experts choose vitamins and minerals in perfect combination, put them into one single package and give you and say all-you-need-is-this? Isn't that be great? What's good about this book is you can save your time and money to know which supplements are good for you. If you were me, you don't wanna spend rest of your life to find out which supplements are good and which are bad. Save time, save money, save yourself. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A book about love
Ms. Anand tells a wonderful tale of true love.Love of a husband and wife faced with unexpected challenges so early in their marriage, and how they struggled to keep that love alive under both sad and horrific conditions.Love of children for their parents and each other.Love of family, both immediate and extended.And love for each and every person touched by the fight for the cure. I was swept away by the human drama and just when I thought I knew what was going to happen next, the story look another unforeseen turn.It's amazing to realize that this is a true story.Life and love doesn't get any better than this.

5-0 out of 5 stars It makes you think and it makes you care
This wonderful book has a lot of emotional depth and complexity.John Crowley, the young father, is brash, brilliant, arrogant, and ignorant.He makes personal mistakes and business mistakes, yet you remain drawn to his story by empathy for his desperation as he fears that his small children will suffer a slow painful death.It's an honest and interesting portrait of a real human being, not a one-dimensional hero.
5-0 out of 5 stars Interesting - Read it non-stop!
Very good book - Interesting story.Highlights are the lengths a family goes through to help their children, and the inspirational message.I think the title is ironic, since there is not actually a "cure" for Pompe Disease, merely a treatment to help stabilize and possibly restore some muscle function.Also misleading a bit, because while Crowley without a doubt worked very hard on a cure, the actual treatment approved by the fda was not the main one he was involved with researching/funding.Nonetheless, still a very admirable man and good story. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Hatha Yoga Bible!
This book is informative, well written and has the excact amount of theory/practicle information needed!!
5-0 out of 5 stars Fascinating Approach To Anatomy
I purchased this book to assist in preparation for a small group presentation in a Yoga class at DePaul University.The course text (Donna Farhi's excellent "Yoga Mind, Body & Spirit") emphasized the need to understand bodies "to the cellular level" in order to fully appreciate what Yoga does for the body, and provided an introduction to each bodily system in relation to Yoga."Anatomy of Hatha Yoga" took that introduction to a level I never dreamed possible, and provided most, if not all of the information needed for our small group presentation on the skeletal system, especially in the context of Yoga.It's also extremely well written -- and yes, exhaustive and comprehensive -- but what comes through is the author's love of anatomy and Yoga.Some sections took more than one reading, but the challenge was as good for the brain as Yoga is for the body.I will recommend that this book be added to the course material, either as a required text or a reserve resource for students.Highly recommended.

3-0 out of 5 stars better have some knowledge or some time
My title says it all. The book is good, but it is not suitable for a novice. I was looking for books to recommend to new individuals to yoga, so I bought this book. It is good to me, but I have been teaching for 7 years. If you are new lookign for base knowledge, look elsewhere. If you have been practicing yoga for awhile, give it a try! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars some great advice for maintaining sound health
I think this book will be a pretty good resource for anyone searching for information regarding ways to ensure that their health is in top form. It shows them to how go about choosing the proper doctor, insurance companies, and treatment plans. Additionally, readers are also supplied with information on how to deal with a miscellany of ailments and conditions consistent with someone who is of less than sound health. Some examples are inclusive of, but not limited to, cat allergies, turkey neck, diabetes, heart disease, back pain, amnesia, and much, much more.

4-0 out of 5 stars It supplies the information on health everyone should have
Michael Roizen helps you learn how your body works and how to get in touch with it. The only criticism I have of the book is that Roizen advocates a special diet, rather than focusing on what your body tells you what it needs. None the less, This book is your own owners manual for your own body. To be healthy you have to understand all of the various bodily functions, not just the dogmatic views other books discuss, and what you need to do to keep everything running smoothly and remain and maintain a healthy state.
5-0 out of 5 stars Great book
I did not consider myself a smart patient or an educated patient before I read this book, but know I feel that I have a better understanding of my health. It told me when I reach this age I should take this test. Not only did it tell me what, but it also told me why I should take the test and what I should expect (pain) from the test. This book it worth 3 times what I paid for it and the revenue is going to charity! Another great book for smart patients is`Can We Live 150` by M. Tombak. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Bathroom Humor. Next Time Print Your Material In The Stall With A Marker.
It's not a bad book if you enjoy middle school bathroom humor....about half the book is sexual humor. And for about 25% of the questions they dont know the answer.
4-0 out of 5 stars Funny, interesting, entertaining, and "helpful"!
Somehow any further compliment to this book seems meaningless amongst the sea of positive reviews here. However, I still want to express my heartfelt appreciation to some authentic answers to some of my life long doubts, including:-
4-0 out of 5 stars The 411 on all things gross and goofy
Funnier than the alarmist 1960s "classic" EVERYTHING YOU WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT SEX * BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK. This post-modern medical answer book is more of a "Goofus and Gallant explain it all to you, and then some." It is mostly presented as short medical explanations based on questions doctors often get asked at cocktail parties after the other guests' inhibitions drop from their alcohol consumption. These tidbits include sexual and scatalogical curiosities, old wives' tales, and medical oddities bordering on urban legends. These informative, if odd, explanations are interspersed with verbatim email and IM exchanges (typos left uncorrected) between the coauthors--the bona fide medical doctor Goldberg (Gallant) and medical tourist Leyner (in the Goofus role). They have no illusions about the literary merit of their collaboration and are quite frank about the room in the house where their book is most likely to be read and shelved. Don't throw about your AMA Guide to Medicine, but DO read WHY DO MEN HAVE NIPPLES? for the fun of it. If laughter is the best medicine, you'll probably extend your life by at least another week or two. ... Read more

2-0 out of 5 stars Not for me thanks--a very incomplete, unsatisfying program
Let me first say that I've done this program several times over the past few years, and stayed on it each time for at least 6 months. It did not do much for me. My physique did not change, nor did the way i felt. I'm in good shape anyway, but I certainly did not build muscle mass. As far as strength goes, there's no possible way to test whether these exercises really build strength or not. I suppose you could subjectively say whether you felt stronger doing day to day activities, or test yourself with weights but neither of those is optimal.
5-0 out of 5 stars Fast tone up, low price, and all you need to keep fit.
I am just doing the 7 tiger exercises now, but there are 6 other exercise groups in the book.I bought 3 more books for my kids and grandkids, because these exercises work.Also, you can do them anywhere, as no equipment is needed.Joe

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Exercise Book I Have Ever Purchased
This book is full of wonderful information and exercises that will change your way of living.I have been using the "Tiger Moves" ( 7 exercises that will change the shape of your body) for about two weeks now and have noticed a difference in my physique. There are workouts included for specific areas and I have tried them,and believe me they are challenging at the beginning, but the end result is worth it. You are working muscle against muscle and no expensive equipment is needed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Good Book
The book gives details on every food group for your blood type.You can look at all four blood types at a glance in the charts given.I just wish there was more information about how to tell if you were a non-secretor or a secretor.Otherwise, good book to have in your library.The husband and I have changed our eating to be according to our blood type as suggested, and within two weeks we could both feel a difference.More energy, less bloating or indigestion.It's a good book!

3-0 out of 5 stars Physical Results May Vary!
I was considering adopting a vegitarian diet due to my many health problems and my mother told me about this book and the benefits her friends have had. So I bought the book and the information was quite facinating. It was like reading my physical autobiography, so I started the diet and I've been on it for 4 weeks and I have had no weight loss. Why..I don't know, but my energy levels have dropped significantly although I must say that my overall shape has changed. It appears that either I'm toning or I'm loosing muscle mass. The books were an easy read, but the thing I find most confusing is this concept of using herbs for ailments and overal health, there are sooooo many herbs out there for every kind of physical issue good or bad and I'm confused as to just how many pills can one person take?! I want to buy the right kind of vitamins and minerals for my body, but even on the website there are 5 or more kinds of pills that I should take, not to mention the shakes, bars and extra health meds that they recommend. I'm sorry to say that I have learned why I am sensitive to certain foods and why I've gained weight, but as to how to fix the problem, there seem to be too many pills and sometimes conflicting pieces of advice. In all, I'm more confused than I was when I was in the dark. So to all of you who have been successful with this diet, BRAVO to you, but for those of you who have bodies that are far more complex than diets and "all natural" foods, I feel you and maybe we'll find the REAL solution someday together.

3-0 out of 5 stars it was okay
I bought the book thinking that it would help me learn how to eat for my blood type but I find it very difficult to follow and difficult to read it. This is more like an index for health problems and if you are susseptible to them by what your blood type is. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars A six-pack that quenched my thirst--not a lite book.
Imagine a "6-pack" sitting on my desk untouched for almost three years!No, not beer, these are six Learning & Development books written by the L&D guru, Robert Mager.I had a formal Needs Analysis to conduct andneeded a quick refresher (a shot of help).And not the swill that manytraining books provide that leave you parched, thirsting for more.Itapped into the 6-pack and cracked open the first book "AnalyzingPerformance Problems, or you Really Oughta Wanna" and began to drink in theinformation.I need models to follow and Mager provides actual flow chartswith appropriate questions to ask.These helped guide me in formulating aNeeds Analysis.(Truth be told, they worked pretty well with this metaphortoo!)Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Helpful but Not Scholarly.
This book is extremely helpful to those who are wishing to quit eating sugar. Almost immediately, the pages strengthen your resolve and heighten your motivation. That sugar is a factor in our general societal health decline, and that it adds to our collective physiological and psychological woes, is indisputable. Many of Duffy's aggregate claims are correct, but Sugar Blues is far more a polemic than that it is serious scholarship. Duffy writes to indict and persuade rather than to clarify "gray areas." That didn't bother me though as I was able to take it for what it was and appreciate it. For those looking for a more erudite discussion regarding the subject, they will have to look elsewhere.

1-0 out of 5 stars good ideas amid bad ideas
William Dufty is absolutely right when he writes that the human body is not built to digest sugar in the amounts contained in a can of coke or a serving of ice cream, and that when it is forced to do so, long-term damage, and health problems, must result.
2-0 out of 5 stars Scientifically lacking
Although it's been some years since this book was published, I decided to give it a read for personal as well as professional reasons. I have no love for the sugar industry and avoid all forms of refined sugar, so I came to this book with a very open mind.I'm also a diabetes educator, and I've worked with thousands of children with diabetes.The author's historical information was interesting and enlightening.I thought, hmm, good introduction to the topic.Then, he started on the diabetes angle, and as each page went by I started getting more and more disgusted with the book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Susan Ashley, Ph.D. Author of The ADD and ADHD Answer Book
As clinical and forensic psychologist I use this book in mypractice with my clients who have experienced a trauma and are suffering from PTSD.This book is an excellent tool to educate trauma survivors about the symptoms they are experiencing and gives step by step tools and lessons to help overcome the symptoms of PTSD.After one experiences a trauma the psychological symptoms that come afterwards, often times months afterwards, can make the person feel as if they are going crazy. This book helps the trauma victim understand the predictable symptoms, the reason they exist and what to do to cope and eventually overcome them.This book helps trauma victims move from victim to survivor.

4-0 out of 5 stars Great
I found this book to be easy to read and written in plain english.It will be a great source of information for my clients.It is not always easy to find a text that is user friendly for most levels.The author does a wonderful job incorporating all of the information in a way that is not intimidating to the average person.

I survived sexual trauma and this book is a wonderful way to work through the pain, anger, and sorrow. It is not a quick fix book and you will be forced to deal with scary issues. A great read and very helpful! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Book on Vitamins for a Healtier Life-The Proto-Wicca Herbal Primer
This paperback is filled with so many great vitamin facts.It's still the best book on utilizing vitamins and herbs ,for optimum daily health.Calling it the 'Vitamin Bible',was a bold and well-justified title.Nicholaus Culpepper compiled a massive tome on herbs,some three centuries eariler.Culpepper realized the benefits of using the herbs of our earth.He also realized the self-empowerment ,of fellow humans connecting with our natural world.He printed biblical passages inside,to leasen the concerns over any 'earth-magick', being revealed in his magnum opus.I think there are alot of neo-pagans out-there,who first used this book as a herbal primer .The original 'Vitamin Bible' was published in 1979.It's funny because many of the old hippies turned born-again christians reached-out to this book for 'healing wisdom'.It rode the high-tide,along side of the 'Dianetics-Scientology' books. It's still a great reference, for anyone looking for an introduction on herbs and vitamins,and a reawakening for all Western-world people.

5-0 out of 5 stars Excellent Guide for Health
I bought this book last week and it's excellent value for money.It has all the information about vitamins and herbs; it gives recommendations as well as warnings; advice about specific ailments, and so much more.I was surprised at the depth of information given.For example, my doctor told me that the herb known as horsetail helped halt osteoporosis when taken along with calcium.He also recommended boron.Nowhere else have I found confirmation of that information but this book mentions both. Unfortunately, you will not find horsetail listed in the index.That is the only complaint I have about the book that, occasionally, just occasionally, something was not listed in the index that was referred to in the text.If you care about your health, I recommend it.It's a no-nonsense book.

5-0 out of 5 stars Very Helpful Information
