1.0 out of 5 stars Too good to be true, 12 Jan. 2011
This book is actually quite distrubing. I am not a doctor but the claims made on this diet's behalf seem beyond belief. A quick google search shows claims splattered all over the internet that this diet can make you lose weight at a rate of 15 - 30 pounds per month despite the fact that this goes against standard medical advice. Desperate people could be misled by these claims I would implore anyone who wants to follow this diet to speak to their doctor first. I presume Ms Kenton would not object to this if she has her buyers best interests at heart.

I would personally reccomend a book called "Mindless Eating" by Brian Wansink which is a fun and informative read which allows you to make small and regular changes in your diet in order to lose weight relatively painlessly and effortlessly at a safe rate. It has some great little tricks which I bet you never thought of. This is available on Amazon very cheaply. And it is quite funny too!For the sake of good order I confirm I have no connection with Kenton, Wansink or any other diet guru.

4.0 out of 5 stars Open Your Eyes Open Your Mind, 2 Aug. 2006
The most startling thing which comes through from Daniel Tammets book is not his astonishing savant abilities (which have already been documented elsewhere). It is his generosity of spirit and courage in overcoming his shyness and other problems to propogate his message that difference is not necessarily disabilty. It is particularly touching how his attempts to overcome his problems in travelling and meeting people have resulted in him being able to do more and more - he has in effect "felt the fear and done it anyway". I intend to take up one of his language courses as soon as I can. Heartily recommended!
