An incomplete product - buyer beware
on 30 September 2008
I agree entirely with Mark's review of the 12 May 2007. The book starts well and then runs out of useful content very quickly. It's not a bad introduction to the basics of the low-carb/low-gi concepts and, fair enough, there are plenty of recipes.
However, I'm writing this review to declare my main gripe with the book which, after my trawl through the constant and repetitive sales pitch in the early chapters (why do people do this? I've already bought the book) has left me feeling pretty cheated. The reason is this: the 'diet' part of the book is made up of about 1/3 recipes from this book and 2/3 recipes from their other three books on the same/similar subjects. These are the same books touted repeatedly in the preceding chapters.
So this book only appears to be a complete product if you're prepared to pay for the quadrilogy (which I'm not), and then prepared to flick back and forth between the whole library in order to get a meal plan out of it.
Not for me thanks.
