Clayton Morris is a very savvy guy.. He's worked for many tech companies in the states and is a sometime broadcaster over there. I'm aware of him mainly through appearances on Leo Laporte's TWIT podcast network. He mentioned that this ebook was free for one day on his last appearance and as I have an interest in the subject I went and grabbed it. I opened it whilst watching the show and while flicking through the pages I though there had been an error in the download.... almost every page contains the same content. I closed the ebook, rebooted the kindle and tried again.. nope I was right this 30 odd page 'ebook' has about HALF a page of content in it in total... Clayton non to carefully duplicates large fields of pretty basic information every few pages and ends up carefully (this time) telling you not much apart from that he has a website opening that is dedicated to this subject... I thought ok it was free..no harm done and that he is a shrewd business man... then I look back on the kindle store and see that he is actually charging for this 'advert' !!??
If your half as shrewd as Clayton I would not waste 4 quid on this this promotional leaflet.. which is about the best this can be called..

3.0 out of 5 stars Not really a guide - more of an informational brochure 27 Jan 2014
By Leslie - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
I did not think there was much information in this book, at least in the sense of it being a guide to living gluten free or identifying gluten-containing products, as the subtitle suggests. This was a really short book (34 pages), and yet, so much of the same information seemed to be repeated. The focus of the book, I would say, is that a growing number of illnesses/diseases are related to a consumption of gluten, and they list several of those conditions for you: depression, migraines, cancer, brain lesions, etc. The author gripes on multiple occasions that the FDA is not doing enough to keep this "poison" (gluten) away from people. I did not find it to be particularly well-researched, as most of the sources for information are the author's own website, or his "friend's" book.

On the plus side, this book suggests that you can try eliminating gluten from your diet for a period of time, then adding it back in to see if you react to it. This will give you a clue about whether or not medical testing - which can be quite extensive, expensive, and not always accurate - would be something that would benefit you to pursue, instead of suggesting to people that they go out and get tested without trying "gluten elimination" first

1.0 out of 5 stars Offering opinion as fact. 27 Jan 2014
By Ferguson - Published on Amazon.com

I like watching Clayton and his wife Natali on TWiT. I appreciate the free download. This ebook reads like a religious tract. He makes a lot of statements with very little to back it up. Clayton obviously has benefited from his choice to be gluten free and is convinced that his point of view is the correct one, as a true believer would. It doesn't account for the thousands of years mankind has been eating wheat. Gluten isn't an additive, it is a protein that is found in wheat (barley and rye), it is what makes bread - bread. He calls it a poison and wonders why the FDA isn't doing something about it. Really - you want the FDA to list wheat as a dangerous substance? If it works for you great - but wanting everyone else to see food the way you do really reminds me of cultish behavior. This is written in a very dogmatic fashion, this is truth and everyone else is mis-guided. He makes statements about diseases that are related to gluten (chapter 10), and says "according to research"- what research? He says gluten is in cosmetics, soap and other everyday items but never says why, how it got there. Wheat = Poison.

I know 1 percent of the population is diagnosed with celiac disease, and many are undiagnosed. Others have a sensitivity to outright gluten allergy. The best thing that Clayton says is try the diet for 2 weeks and see how you feel, that makes sense. Obviously if you have a sensitivity you find out everything you can. This rest of this ebook is written from a broad brush that gluten affects everyone and is poison.

I am not saying he is totally wrong about wheat, for that matter sugar or carbs in general. We eat way to many empty calories in this country. I have been on low carb diets where I abstained from wheat and sugar, all white starches. I lost weight, rather quickly. That said rice and potatoes are gluten free and if you just ate these instead of wheat you would still be eating tons of carbs. A Paleo type diet makes more sense, get rid of all cultivated food if you are worried about GMO's, processed food etc. This pamphlet seems to promote his website more than anything - Chapter 14.

Just saying gluten is poison to everyone, doesn't take into account how it is eaten in every culture in the world, since we started raising crops, like 10,000 years. There are NO gluten free nations on earth, never have been, they all eat wheat. He wants the FDA to regulate it? I have a difficult time with people who want to regulate what everyone else does, just because they are convinced they are right. This is written with an affluent, first-world outlook. Lots of starving people in the world would love to have some bread or pasta to eat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The author's passion delivers 5 Jan 2014
By LL - Published on Amazon.com

I suspect because my businesses involve food safety and personal chefs (separately and together) none of the science Clayton shares in his treatise comes as a surprise to me. At the same time, people in general pay scant attention to how food impacts their lives so the emphasis Clayton puts on some of the connections should hit home. As celiac disease is more readily diagnosed by the medical community (a relatively new phenomenon) it's important to drive home the larger concept of gluten tolerance (as it is not an allergy). Until people understand the impact of gluten on their systems the message may go the way of smoking and obesity. The book adds links to relevant data (JAMA has some interesting new updates) to connect the dots.

At the same time, I hope Clayton does a follow up and addresses some other issues:

1) Helping people understand that gluten is a natural protein composite and not a man-made chemical, thus some of the dubious science about what it is and it's effects.
2) Eliminating gluten from your diet should not be considered a diet "fad" which is becoming big. Many foods that contain gluten have nutrients that must be replaced. Eliminating them from your diet without a replacement for the nutrients could be equally harmful. Ask a doctor or a nutritionist. But don't turn it into the next Atkins fad.
3) I'm not familiar with the myriad of personal care products that have a gluten risk. If, indeed, that is accurate then a suggestion of alternates is critically important to get buy in-from the public. Many people have quit but, at the same time, people still smoke despite the science. Alternatives are important.

All said, though, it's good to see people with a pulpit spread the word! If you know nothing about gluten this is a good start. If you think it's a fad diet, start with this to understand the depth of science underlying gluten-related health issues. I look forward to the follow up!
