I was obsessive and read this from cover to cover. Really helpful!

A worthy addition to anyone's health reference library.

There is no way to be 'finished' with a reference book.

That said, I have a deep appreciation for the comprehensiveness of the book. It lists the vitamin or mineral form that is most usable by the body—as well as its food sources.

Why not take iron with calcium? Why should thiamin (B1), riboflavin (B2) and B6 be taken in equal quantities? This is stuff your doctors just don't have time to tell you. It isn't their expertise.

This book is information overload. Actually, it isn't that there is too much information, so much as it is laid out in a quirky manner.

Interesting, overwhelming and perhaps more anecdotal than not. He lost me entirely when he said that bodybuilders should be eating a diet comprised of 90% carbs, 10% protein & little or no fat. *snerk* Then came the credulous chapter on homeopathy. I can't recommend this, unless to someone already predisposed to believe in miracle cures. I'm certain that a lot of the information is very good, but there were so many red flags for me that I ended up not believing any of it.

It's a book about vitamins (and minerals, amino acids, etc). It's an incredibly easy read- I read it cover to cover in about two hours. Highly reccomended if you are trying to get healthy.

A comprehensive guide. It covers a wide range of vitamins and explains each one in depth. There are also sections devoted to health issues and other relevant topics.
