There is a small selection of decent whole-foods recipes in this book, but . . .

I had the funny feeling while reading it that the author must have some close ties to food product manufacturers. The book seems to be featuring certain products--and not the organic ones (though a few are listed in less-prominent positions).

This book has some good information, such as specific uses for different probiotic strains. The recipes were no surprise. I'm glad I borrowed it from the library, and it was worth taking some notes. Not sure I would buy it, not due to the quality, but due to the growing wealth of information that is becoming available in this area. This is a rapidly growing area of study.
