This is not one of those typical glossy cookbooks but it really is the one for anyone who seriously wants to learn about how certain dietary changes can improve their health by getting to the root cause of the imbalances that are causing problems (causes such as inflammation, adrenal stress and gastro-intestinal issues).
It is marketed as being an important resource for nutritionally-minded healthcare professionals, and as a student of nutrition I think it is very practical, tying in the science and fundamentals of functional medicine with recipes and lifestyle advice. Personally I think that anyone with a slightly scientific enquiring mind and a desire to understand their own or their familiy's health issues would find this enlightening and helpful.
My only criticism is that the CD-Rom doesn't really add anything, just a PDF of what's in the book - so I s'pose you could print recipes out rather than photocopy them if desired.
