My husband's doctor recommended the Mediteranean diet for him after by-pass surgery, so I bought several cookbooks to learn how to cook this way. This is a great book for someone who knows nothing about this diet. It explains the diet, gives you a sample menu, and has some great recipes.

I follow Wendy Jo Peterson on Twitter (@FuelinRoadie) because she is the the only nutritionist I’ve come across who works specifically with musicians and live event crew.

My only complaint with the book is that the index could be more comprehensive.

Very well-balanced overview of the Mediterranean lifestyle. Great introduction, and includes some good recipes. Highly recommended as a jumping-off point for learning about the benefits and how-tos of a Mediterranean diet.

Good basic info. Lots of recipes for every meal, snacks and desserts!
Some of the recipes are for 24 people. Most are for 6-8 servings. Not very helpful for a single person. Even trying to "cut" the recipe doesn't work that well.
