3.0 out of 5 stars disappointed with vitamin B12, 23 Nov. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i had though solgar was a high quality multi-vitamin. however, upon investigation i found it uses the cheap and toxic cyanide form of vitamin B12 (the cyanide is stripped off the cobalt and rejected by the body). as the title says, i'm disapppointed. i'll be looking for a multi-vitamin that uses a more expensive, non-toxic form of vitamin B12 next time i buy multi-vitamins. i actually bought this for a friend as i used to take the male version. that, at least, is a plus point as males and females do have quite different vitamin and mineral requirements.

5.0 out of 5 stars a 'must have' practical guide to fruitarianism, 24 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this is a 'must have' practical guide to fruitarianism for both the 'would be' and practicing (like myself) fruitarian. there is really very little that rejean durette doesn't cover in a clear, concise and authorative way (apart from the vitamin B12 issue, which i rather suspect has been blown out of all proportion and could be made into a book in itself). i suspect some may find it a little too authorative, especially if they doubt the viability of a fruitarian diet. and there were one or two moments that the analytical side of my nature kicked in and i had to think rather deeply whether or not i agreed with him. but that aside, i doubt a better practical guide to fruitarianism exists than this book. rejean durette is not only fruitarian but grows most of his own fruit. he can truly be said to be 'living the dream'. and he shares that dream with anyone who dares to dream too in this book.

5.0 out of 5 stars an excellent introduction to fruitarianism, 20 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: I Live On Fruit (Paperback)
this is a very accessable account of essie honiball's experiences with and philosophy on fruitarianism. there is much in the way of good 'common' sense and the recounting of her experiences, both dietary and social, are very insightful. i can personally relate to much of what she writes.

essie honiball took up fruitarianism in an attempt to improve her failing health. this is her story of that journey. i came to fruitarianism from having been vegetarian for many years. having been fruitarian on and off for several years now i know the benefits fruitarianism can give. as such, i bought this book to improve my knowledge of fruitarianism and thereby my practice of it too. many people still regard fruitarianism as an extreme form of diet. to me this could not be further from the truth. it is a very natural and very healthy diet and lifestyle. it is more than just what you eat. it is a truly holistic approach to health. but it does need one to be prepared to go against social norms and display a high degree of committment. i firmly believe the benefits far outweigh the pitfalls that can be encountered along the way. and this book is very much a testament to that belief. she packs a lot into what is a relatively compact book, partly because of the question and answer style of layout. it took me about 2 hours to read but i did rather rattle through it. others might want to reflect more on its contents than i did as they go along.

there are far too few books on this most important subject. this is one of those few and i am extremely glad i have a copy. i would have no hesitation recommending it to anyone, fruitarian or otherwise.

5.0 out of 5 stars for anyone serious about understanding what jesus said, 22 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
this book undoubtedly won't appeal to everyone. to those that are invested in the religious dogmas that have been created by the christian church there will be some unappealing revelations.

but to me, it confirms many of my personal views about the true nature of the message jesus gave to the world. it is both revelatory and challenging, as one grapples with ones own perception and depth of understanding. in that regard, i found it very worthwhile and meaningful.

i would also like to add that this book very much tries to bridge the divide between jews, christians and muslims, in as much as by peeling away those layers of dogma, i truely universal vision of religious belief is revealed. i wish this book every success. the world certainly needs its message of tolerance and truly spiritual enquiry.

5.0 out of 5 stars a good place to start for those interested in a raw food diet, 22 Mar. 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
i was looking for a good starting point to explore improving my diet. this book is that and far more. i would highly recommend it to anyone.

the information is comprehensive and accessible. it provides a compelling case for the adoption of this form of diet which is difficult to easily reject. in fact, it seems to me that the claims about natural hygiene are quite obvious to anyone with a degree of intuitiveness. if you could just buy one book that would make a siginificant difference to your life, this is the one. what you eat is what you are, and this book is certainly food for thought.

if i had one concern, however, it would be that certain areas of diet are dealt with in such an open-ended manner that there is bound to be some degree of confusion in the mind of the reader. this, no doubt, is because this subject is still developing, due to the lack of commercial interest in unprocessed foods. but this book is still a truly excellent endeavour and well deserves the independent publisher award it achieved.
