I received my copy yesterday morning and immediately sat down with it and a highlighter pen to read line-for-line cover-to-cover. From 0900h through 2200h yesterday, this book was my constant companion. 200 pages of extremely well presented material on a health issue my family copes with 24/7/365 - and yes, this book has helped in that daily grind of medically mandated gluten-free (GF) life. My husband was diagnosed with coeliac disease autumn 2015 after over 50 years of 'mystery illness'. Being the chief cook and bottle washer at our house, I've tried to become as knowledgeable about gluten sensitivity as possible and this book has been very, very helpful.

One of the problems family and loved ones of a coeliac disease sufferer face is the self-sabotage the sufferer inflicts when the restrictions and difficulties of the diet and subsequent lifestyle changes become boring/overwhelming/frustrating/time-consuming (tracking down good tasting GF food items). With my husband, he self-sabotages once or twice a month by 'cheating' with a packet of biscuits, traditional fish and chips - the batter is a problem, but also the malt (from barley - a huge no for my husband) vinegar on the chips - cheating knocks him back within a few hours of the cheat session. The one thing that really helps keep him on track is having a ready reference to 'back-up' reasons why he should stick with it - this book does just that. The author is highly respected (for very good reason) in his field and holds a highly responsible position at a highly respected medical facility - to my husband this makes him 'real', not a fad or hack fake doctor trying to sell his philosophy and (expensive) diet plan and books.

I bought this book as my husband is coeliac and after reading so many books on coeliac disease I thought reading one more couldn't harm. This book did not tell me anything I haven't read already. There are more informative books out there and I think if I had read this book as a complete newbie on the coeliac topic I would have been disappointed as well.

This was a fascinating book. It describes both coeliac disease and gluten sensitivity. Research papers are reviewed, revealing fascinating new understandings of the effects of gluten on the sensitive individual.
This book is well written. It should be read both by health professionals and patients seeking to understand the role of gluten in the production of ill health.

This book is worth reading! After a long struggle with ill health, I finally discovered gluten was the problem. This was seven years ago. I read everything I could find at that time, mostly written by GPs in America. Although careful re gluten intake my health took another turn for the worse and I was directed to a neurologist. After appropriate tests, I heard for the first time the words gluten ataxia, a link to Professor Sanders work and a research paper by Stuart Currie. It seemed great strides were being made and I bought this book. Shortly after, I had an appointment with a gastroenterologist. It seemed fortunate that I had read the book as a good way through the consultation I was made to understand the gastroenterologist did not believe in gluten ataxia. I was hearing page 100 of this book almost word for word.

This book indicates there is a light at the end of the tunnel. It seems fair to assume that the tunnel is a therefore getting shorter. Be assured this is not necessarily the case. Professor Sanders’ research is most likely unknown to most GPs and I wonder how many gastroenterologists are of the same opinion as the one I met. I had hoped to be offered a genetic test and when finally it was mentioned silence soon followed indicating this method was not an option - his way or no way at all; a very different level of understanding to that of Professor Sanders. When I referred to this book further silence followed before being quoted what sounded like yet another extract from the book but yet again totally contrary to the findings of the author.

Finding the right doctor is still a long way from being a simple procedure.

NB: The recipes mention soya sauce, for anyone new to gluten ensure it is Tamari

Bought this as my grandson has a gluten allergy. An interesting read but had hoped it may give hints to combatting the allergy but it didn't really. Made us all rethink some of our diet though.

There have been so many books written about gluten " sensitivity" by sufferers. Although it must be a bind , I cannot help but be a little sceptical about evidence base of one feedback! Other books written by specialists are often so dry that they are an impalatable read. Gluten attack written by a renowned specialist , gives all the facts but makes them clear , easy to understand and was an enlightening read. The lack of jargon and helpful hints on the oddest foods that contain gluten was quite a surprise , as well as the range of symptoms people can suffer from.I seem to have a large number of friends with all of the above , so instead of blind terror when confronted with having them to dinner, I now have a bit more compassion and some helpful hints on how to progress.
This really is a bit like that eureka moment when they worked out that sugar was bad for diabetics.
