I found this book really helpful, it discussed macrobiotics but in an up to date and easy context. I got some realy useful tips and am now forever boring my friends and family with useful 'health' information. I use it like a bible now and refer to it often.

Great introduction to the 'macrobiotic way'. Need to find more recipes, but the book gives a good overview into what you can and can't eat, and why.

this is an excellent book everyone should read; it is urgent to change our feeding way and this book helps everyone to understand lots of things related to food and the correct way of eating, normally hidden by the food industry interests.

I am enjoying reading this book very much. The writer has laid it out logically and gives good examples of differences between junk food and whole food. I am learning a lot about the way the body works and the importance of eating a balanced diet.
The font is quite small and it would have been useful to have made it a bit larger.
