5.0 out of 5 stars Just what i was looking for 8 Oct. 2009
By ginger
Format:Paperback
I found this book really helpful, it discussed macrobiotics but in an up to date and easy context. I got some realy useful tips and am now forever boring my friends and family with useful 'health' information. I use it like a bible now and refer to it often.

Great introduction to the 'macrobiotic way'. Need to find more recipes, but the book gives a good overview into what you can and can't eat, and why.

Format:Paperback
this is an excellent book everyone should read; it is urgent to change our feeding way and this book helps everyone to understand lots of things related to food and the correct way of eating, normally hidden by the food industry interests.

Having read several books on Macrobiotics, this one stands out as being clear, comprehensive and easily accessible. I like the way Verne Varona has written and arranged the book; it covers a lot of ground and whether you read it from start to finish or dip into it via the excellent index, you're bound to find up to date and interesting information with regard to understanding the Macrobiotic lifestyle.

4.0 out of 5 stars Macrobiotics for Dummies 8 Aug. 2012
By CBurn
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Very good book with lots of information presented in a variety of ways to suit those who want the techy side and those who aren't so interested in the science. Haven't tried many of the recipies yet and maybe would have been a bit more inspired to if there were good pictures of the dishes but as this isn't really a recipe book I don't think it's fair to critise for them not being available.
