Top critical review
Contradictory, too wordy, and lots of fluff.
Reviewed in the United States on April 20, 2019
This book can be half the length if the author focused on quality over quantity. A lot of the writing is fluff and pointless wordiness just to fill the pages and increase page count. You need to wade through the pointless lists, one sided questions, and the fluff to get to the actual point. Some of the advice is just plain ridiculous, such as listing going to the store to pick up diapers as a con when compared to cloth diapers. A lot of the advice is also contradictory which points to lack of research. For instance, the author mentions that few studies have been done looking at the safety of taking herbs but then a few paragraphs later rattles of a list of herbal teas to drink. She also mentions to avoid added chemicals in your diet, but a few paragraphs later rattles of another wordy list of artificial sweeteners which themselves are man made chemicals. All that is just in the first three chapters.
You are much better off buying a book written by an actual MD which will most likely be to the point and not full of contradictions.
