2.0 out of 5 stars Nice looking, difficult to USE 5 July 2009
By MOM2-3 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would have liked to give this book 5 stars, but it has serious flaws for a cook book. I have read Anti-Cancer, the book on which these recipes are based. A whole half of this book is dedicated to reiterating what foods can fight cancer. The second half is the "cookbook". The major problem with the ease of use of the cookbook is that the index is useless! Browsing through the recipes, I noticed at least 4 recipes that feature lentils. When I was ready to make some Lentil and Carrot Soup, I open the book's index to find the recipe. In the index, Lentil is not listed. Nor is Carrot. Nor Soup! Now I've got to flip through the beautiful photos and other recipes hoping to come across the one I want. That's a disappointment. The editor of this book needs a different job.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worse than Useless 1 Mar. 2010
By Amanda C. Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am amazed that this book was even written by the same authors as the excellent "Foods to Fight Cancer". The first half of the book does have some very useful information but starting with the very first recipe things go downhill quickly. The first four ingredients (of a six ingredient recipe) are sugar, oil, eggs and white flour. These are foods that actually promote cancer - as anyone who has read the outstanding book "Anti-Cancer" will easily see. The wheat bran and blueberries that finish out these muffins cannot possibly compensate for the harm of the first four ingredients. What follows are more recipes full of sugar, oil, flour and animal products (such as cheese and beef) all of which are known to accelerate cancer growth. I love their other book but this one is likely to do more harm than good. For a much better book on cancer nutrition read "The Cancer Survivors Guide" by Neal Barnard and Jennifer K. Reilly or "The China Study" by T. Colin Campbell PhD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful Book! 2 Dec. 2007
By R. Zettler - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a wonderful book full of useful and authoritative information as well as excellent recipes that are easy and not too time consuming.

After I heard an interview with the authors on CBC Radio, I just had to have this book. I went out and bought it that same day. Now I am giving it for
Christmas. The format of this book, with its shiny pages and great pictures makes it a book that can be a coffee table presentable book.

All in all a beautiful presentation with solid content.

3.0 out of 5 stars Surprised! 6 Oct. 2009
By BeLynda - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a big fan of Dr. Beilveau ... but I was very surprised to see recipes that include sugar. It appears that the recipes were not reviewed in detail. I plan to try many of the recipes included -- but the sugar thing really surprised.

4.0 out of 5 stars beautiful cookbook-- but sugar? 28 Dec. 2007
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I think this is a beautifully presented cook book. I am aware of the foods to beware of and I am a little puzzled by the use of sugar, but we always take our common sense with us when we have cancer-- but the recipes are inspiring and so many taste good.
