The mission of this collection is to promote poetry that catches the youth's attention. Jeremiah Walton, the author, was fed up with his peer's negative stereotyping of poetry. He started Nostrovia! Poetry,

Generation Y? Generation Z? Millennials? Not sure what the current label is, but here is one voice of the most recent generation coming of age and wow! (says this Baby Boomer) What a wonderful voice! Savor it, re-read it, and perhaps you will fall back on these powerful words someday, when life demands an answer to the chaos and confusion some of us attempt to navigate...

Walton's poems are densely packed with tension and insight, as poetry should be. Be prepared to invest some time to capture the meaning.

My favorite poem was chapter 5. Short, sweet, and with a ton of impact.

Walton is definitely an author to watch. I'll look forward to seeing his next work!

To Your Health: Humanity's Diagnosis is like a fist of poems from Jeremiah Walton. The book is abuzz with words that the author uses like bullets and most of the time they hit their target. There's the fury of youth in these writings and I look forward to what comes next. Poetry doesn't have to be dull and Walton proves it with his book.

A collection of poems about interaction between people, their surroundings and themselves. This body of work provokes striking imagery, delicate issues being tampered with and captivating use of stance. Walton's "To Your Health: Humanity's Diagnosis" is visionary.

I very much enjoyed it. It has a great sensibility, intriguing imagery and a disturbingly valid pre-apocalyptic view of the world. Good work!

This is a short, short collection of poetry built around the theme the book's title suggests. Walton has a way with words, to be sure; weaving elegant images out of mundane and macabre ones. However, despite the poetic talent that the poetry demonstrates, the dimensions of that poetry seem somewhat less informed. For instance, the opening bid is a poem that recreates the idea of the big bang, but most of its imagery is generic astral bodies and religion; a little scientifically informed phrasing ...more

As with LSDGiggles this collection of Jeremiah Walton’s poetry takes a balanced attitude toward its topic: in this case the state of humanity’s social/spiritual/mental development.

The collection contains 10 poems – 11 if you also include the simple message of The Dedication – each of which seeks to portray a variant stance on a facet of human society: from the bitter commentary on our preference for sleaze over journalism in Attention Span to the satire of enforced performance of even the most c

Jeremiah Walton writes with the all too lucid vision of an acid trip. Nebulous yet somehow totally clear. The flow of his poems are like the psychedelic chants of an urban shaman, chock-full of substance and relevance, peppered with wisdom. To Your Health: Humanity’s Diagnosis contains far too many unfortunate truths about humankind and our place in the modern world.

I'm a huge fan of poetry, and this book was quite refreshing. This youth certainly will attain a status of influence in the poetic community one day.
