5.0 out of 5 stars Get this book if you want more out of life
This is a clear, insightful, accessible book that expertly explains how to improve physical, mental and spiritual health. Great tasty recipes with colour photos. Everything makes sense and I found the suggestions easy to follow. Practical suggestions and a summary at the end of each chapter make it simple to put into action. Do yourself a favour and read this book.

1.0 out of 5 stars How is this macrobiotics? Does ANYBODY care nowadays?
This really seems a great book AT first sight. Got a professional looking layout - the design of the book is appealing, it has certainly has volume with is 392 pages! and as you flick through it offers a lot of clever advise. HOWEVER when you get to the point of reading through the actual receipes IT does NOT offer much help - as each receipe is using some NIGHTSHADE -...

This review is from: Macrobiotics for Life: A Practical Guide to Healing for Body, Mind, and Heart (Paperback)
Just finished the book - read it from cover to cover - and found myself wanting to know more. It's a really good read for those of us looking to move to a healthier way of life, and I'm looking forward to trying out all the suggested recipes and juices at the back of the book. Great as a first look into Macrobiotics.

This review is from: Macrobiotics for Life: A Practical Guide to Healing for Body, Mind, and Heart (Paperback)
I suggest anyone thinking of buying a macrobiotic book takes a moment to read the editorial reviews below where you will find comments about this book by many of the leading macrobiotic teachers and experts. It kind of says it all.

MELANIE WAXMAN

"Wow! What a fantastic book. It's inspiring, thought provoking, and practical. Simon Brown takes macrobiotic living to a new realm."
Melanie Waxman, macrobiotics teacher and author of Eat Me Now!

CHRISTINA PIRELLO

"This comprehensive guide to natural living is perfection. Simon Brown gives readers a great place to begin their transformation, with understanding and clear, gentle examination of the theories that are the foundation of macrobiotics. He has left the dogma behind and placed his focus on the beautiful wisdom that makes macrobiotics one of the most powerful life journeys you can imagine. This book is for anyone and everyone with an interest in creating their best life."
Christina Pirello, Emmy Award-winning host of Christina Cooks, best selling cookbook author, and macrobiotics teacher

VERNE VARONA

"In Macrobiotics for Life, Simon Brown speaks with a gentle, personable voice and offers readers practical wellness strategies that inspire and educate. He also includes delicious, easy-to-follow recipes by Dragana Brown and takes a much-needed body, mind, and spirit approach."
Verne Varona, author of Macrobiotics for Dummies

CARL FERRE

"In Macrobiotics for Life, Simon Brown provides a non-dogmatic, holistic view of healing. From beginning to end, his conversational style allows readers to view him as a fellow traveler down life's road--a trusted friend providing gentle guidance. The sections on emotional healing provide a significant addition to macrobiotic literature and fill a long-standing void. The depth of understanding and the numerous analogies, examples, practical exercises, and useful summaries at the end of each chapter make this book a must-have for anyone interested in health and well-being."
Carl Ferré, president of the George Ohsawa Macrobiotic Foundation and author of Pocket Guide to Macrobiotics and Acid and Alkaline Companion

BILL TARA

"Living a healthy life is quickly becoming a revolutionary act. Simon Brown's book brings practical insight and broad vision to the transformative study and practice of macrobiotics."
Bill Tara, macrobiotics teacher and counselor

MICHEAL ROSSOFF

"Simon Brown brings macrobiotics into the twenty-first century. By emphasizing the mental, emotional, and spiritual areas of our life, he shows how these intersect for each of us, especially in our way of eating. By inviting you to reflect on these issues, he helps lead you to a profound level of self-discovery. He gently educates you on the key concepts of macrobiotic principles so that you will find them easy to embrace. There is no dogma of good versus bad; instead, Simon provides the tools to understand balance through your experience. This book excels by opening the door wide for lifestyle changes that will influence you, your family--especially children--and your relationships in new, exciting, and healthy ways."
Michael Rossoff, LAc, macrobiotics teacher, counselor, and founder of Macromuse

JADRANKA BOBAN

"At last--a book that in a very clear and direct, simple and sincere way leads you into the depths of the macrobiotic way of life. This is `the best of' the most precious insights and experience gained from a lifetime of macrobiotic philosophy and practice. Simon Brown has shown us the wholeness of a macrobiotic approach to life, the indisputable bond that exists between emotions, attitude, eating habits, breathing, exercising, and healing on all levels of our lives. He fills the void in literature on macrobiotics and provides an excellent compass for anyone who wants to take a healthier and happier road to a great life."
Jadranka Boban Pejic, macrobiotics teacher and award-winning cookbook author

GREG JOHNSON

"Simon Brown has created a broad and highly accessible platform by eliminating much of the conceptual dogma and rigidity that has plagued macrobiotics for so many years. He has opened a new front by examining the role that our emotional life plays in terms of overall health. To his credit, he is also unafraid to venture outside the artificial constraints of macrobiotics by citing other bodies of work that can complement one's practice. This book is equally useful for those wanting to launch their own macrobiotic practice and more seasoned practitioners."

Greg Johnson, macrobiotics teacher and director of the Concord Institute, London

FRANCISCO VARATOJO

"The macrobiotic philosophy and way of life has many different aspects and is often interpreted in a myriad of ways. In this book Simon Brown presents macrobiotics not only from his own perspective but also according to the different viewpoints of the main world teachers who wrote their own definition of what the practice means to them.

Therefore, the book is highly recommended to anyone who wants to know more about macrobiotics, as well as to someone who has been practicing it for many years. I greatly enjoyed reading Macrobiotics for Life particularly because it conveys an open and embracing attitude towards macrobiotics and life in general. Simon is a very prolific writer and once again he has done an excellent job. Congratulations Simon!"

Francisco Varatojo, macrobiotic teacher, counsellor, author and director of the Instituto Macrobiótico de Portugal

HOWEVER when you get to the point of reading through the actual receipes IT does NOT offer much help - as each receipe is using some NIGHTSHADE - well I thought that was the basic concept of macrobiotics NOT TO USE nightshades - but who knows maybe I'm crazy. One thing for sure ... let's just keep printing...keep the printhouses in jobs
