Sears explains the biochemistry of food and its effect on our bodies in an understandable way, and makes the reader re-think what we assume to be healthy eating habits. This book has changed the way I think about what I eat, and I feel better after incorporating some of his ideas into my diet. Following the Zone Diet to a T seems a little complicated, but Sears gets the reader to understand why it is important to follow, and the overall idea is very easy to put into practice.
Big for crossfitters, I read to learn more about the hype. It's a good alternative to Paleo. Probably closer to what would actually work for me. The author makes a good attempt to simplify what is a very complex set of recommendations, but I still left the book thinking that following the plan outlined would be too much work.

Recommends it for: anyone wanting to improve health
As far as diet books go - this seemed pretty good. Balancing out proteins, fats, & carbs.. it gave me a few new ideas for my trips to the grocery store. (like sticking to the perimeter!)
Very informative and logical approach to diet. My only complaint is all of the blocking can seem complicated and overwhelming at first
Started reading because its recommended from the crossfit community as is the Paleo Diet which I have already read.
I actually liked teh recipes, and it gave me a lot of energy. I felt healthy, but I can't say I lost any weight.

I think this is probably the way to live.
Good info for those interested in what they eat.
