Book Description

27 Jan 2007
The first edition of this book became an international best-seller. This new edition, now in full colour, has been revised and updated to take account of developments in the fast-moving world of health care and disease prevention. It has also broadened its outlook to take a more holistic view of what constitutes good health, which means not simply the absence of disease but the promotion of a sense of positive well-being. That said, this is no New Age publication and Dr. Ian Banks' style is as robust and realistic as ever. The new material includes sections on asthma, allergies, diabetes, metabolic syndrome, nutrition and statins. There are also tips on how to get the best from your GP, pharmacist and occupational health service, the very latest on BPH and prostate cancer, and plenty of hints, myths and startling statistics.

2.0 out of 5 stars Didn't live up to my expectations 23 Jun 2008
I love the idea of this book and think it is a concept well worth continued development. I do how ever wonder who the market are which the book is targeting. Other reveiws said it was good for themselves or their Dads.

For young men, I am not so sure. The cartoons are not that engaging the diagrams are not clear, (unless one knows what is being refered to), there are pictures of women in it when refering to issues that may affect either gender, (strange for a book about men), and there appears to be a prudishness about showing anything "rude".

I confess that I did get the book to work with young people and I feel that it will not be engaguing enough for this age group (16-25) as once opened it still looks very much like a bland health encyclopaedia.

The information is great, but a bit more colour on the page would go a long way.
