Save 1.99. You've just read the book.
There is little or nothing in here that most Guardian readers won't already know. Far better to spend a bit more money and buy a decent modern nutrition book, complete with references and author information. This work has neither.
A central thesis of the book is that many of the more harmful foods are addictive in much the same way as many drugs. They trigger similar reactions in the brain.
It's relatively short, well argued and easy to read. Controversial and stimulating.
If you want a comprehensive summary of what we as individuals and as a wider society need to do about our expanding waistlines - this is for you
Politicians should all read it, and anyone who wants to understand why so many of us now fat and unfit.
Deserving of 5 stars but only given 4 to highlight to other purchasers that hard copy is far preferable to kindle for reference books. Yes, there is a contents page and indexes. But this book needs to be flicked through backwards and forwards to maximise its benefits.
Everyone with sugar cravings should read this book.
