Format: Paperback
I haven't had this book very long but have refered to it so much it is looking well thumbed. It is packed full of understandable and easy to read information on the new superfoods, their benefits, and even conditions needed to grow them yourself (where applicable). I'm forever refering to it to find out which superfoods help various ailments and deficiencies. I have started taking two of the foods regularly and I am beginning to feel the benefits. I plan to slowly introduce other superfoods I think may help, although some of them can be expensive and require sourcing online for the best prices (some sources are also listed in the book). If you are really interested in natural remedies and potential long longevity then I would thoroughly recommend this book.

A great reference book, if not a little heavy-going and sometimes too many words are used to make a single point. I don't regret buying "Superfoods", but if you're looking for a single reference book to accompany your (perhaps raw) lifestyle, I'd suggest David Wolfe's "Eating for Beauty" over this one any day.

A full-colour glossy paperback with photographs. Too many pictures of Mr Wolfe for my liking; this feature starts with the cover. My grandfather would have said that Mr Wolfe is not backwards in coming forwards.
The choice of "superfoods" appears eclectic until the penny drops that it could be business interests driving the selection. It smacks of being not the book after the film, but the book after the advertisement.
That said, for me the chapter on Coconuts and specifically their saturated fat was a revelation. As a direct result, after 30 years I have reintroduced them into my diet. And what a joy it is!
The writing is heavy-going in places. The book gives the impression of being first hammered out on some outliner and then text and pictures from multiple sources being pasted in largely unedited. There appears to be no attempt particularly to leaven some of the dense and turgid "scientific jargon" into clear prose. This is disappointing as Mr Wolfe's many appearances on the internet portray him as an effective and popular communicator.
Not a book to keep for the reference shelf, but a pretty one to pass on (one star). The emancipation of Coconuts earn it the second star!

If you are interested in superfoods as a way to improving your health, this book is the ticket. David writes about the benefits of the major superfoods and how we can include them in our diets in an easy to understand way with plenty of tasty recipes and advice. Each superfood has its only section and is beautifully illustrated so is a great reference guide if you just want to flick to the superfood you want to get more information and tips on or to read for an overall view of superfoods. Highly recommended.

This ~340 page book Superfoods: The Food and Medicine of the Future contains possibly all the information that you need to use and eat superfoods. The book contains simple recipes and recipe ideas and uses of the top 10 superfoods and also includes information on other superfoods and even info on some superherbs. Would even buy more of these books as gifts. *****

I was expecting this to be a book where David advises us on which superfoods to buy and why. Well in a way he does but there are so many superfoods listed that I really didn't know where to start! Also, I wouldn't say I'm a dunce when it comes to this kind of thing (as I do browse and buy from raw/vegan websites already) but I have to admit a lot of them I have never even heard of and not so sure I can buy them in the UK. After saying that I am really glad I did buy the book as it is one I can refer to time and time again over the years to come.
