Dr Enig conveys the impression that she is indeed writing from the position of authority. She seems cautious not to venture beyond her own experience and knowledge. Her script reads like a text book which is punctuated by technical jargon which jars a little with the lay-reader, but, it is the kind of book one would wish to retain for reference purposes. It's a worthy read and possibly the best book on the subject. Her honesty is refreshingly appealing.

Don't take my word for it - search on-line for Mary Enig PhD or in combination with dietary fats - I first learnt of her after reading the excellent book by Dr Malcolm Kendrick - The Great Cholesterol Con.

Mary is a world class authority on fats in the diet and after reading this you'll realise as I did how much and how often we in the "civilised" "developed" West have been misled into avoiding saturated fats (yes, they're healthier as they're more inert and less oxidised by storage, processing, cooking, eating and by your body ... thankfully!) and into eating vegetable fats of which are often highly processed, treated and sometimes hydrogenated to make them even dangerous as "trans-fats".

Read Dr Kendricks book (or that by Anthony Colpo which is of the same title) and then this ... and then relax ... and enhoy that meat, a fry up and full cream milk or cheese!

This book is very thorough and provides a level of detail of the fatty acids that most other books do not. It's dated now and lacks recent research but it's a great foundation. I find the Q&A sections an odd format but some of them are helpful
