I liked 80% of the books, great research on the food industry. Some facts were fascinating. I did not know about the dog food industry, pretty scary.

However I was turned off by his brands recommendations, as it felt like he was sponsored by those companies. He exposed a lot of industries and was surprised he did not exposed the vitamin industry. He keeps repeating the death of his dad, like this was the inspiring story that will sell his book, feels over done.

I looked at his research materials,

If you watched the documentary Forks Over Knives then this will all be very familiar. Some interesting things in here but nothing I haven't heard before. If you haven't seen the documentary then it would be an interesting read for sure. It is a bit heavy handed though and uses a ton of scare tactics which I am not sure is always the best way to go if you want to encourage people to make life changes. I would recommend Michael Pollan's books over this any day if you are really interested in learn ...more

The content in this book was good, but it is in desperate need of an editor. Too many grammatical errors. It also bothered me that the author starts the book by talking about all the heavy research he's done, but yet he consistently referred to Merk and not Merck. Irritating. I also didn't like how he talked about "god" throughout the book. Not everyone believes in god and besides, this book was supposed to be about health and not religion. I kind of feel like I wasted $16.

This book had a wealth a good information especially for someone just waking up to the Self Health Revolution and even for those of us who were raised in it.

I gave it 2 stars because of the way J. Micheal Zenn wrote it. It feels like a giant sales pitch. The information sells itself. It's all common sense. There is no need to lay it on so thick. It was a huge turnoff.

I think this book makes so much sense and is put together in a way that speaks to everyone on every level of awareness. It's not overly critical and provides just the right amount of information to hit the basics and not loose interest.

Easy to understand book on how you can improve your health without the use of drugs. I really liked it. Zenn covered all the bases without going into too much depth, but gave you resources for finding more information if you were interested. Very good.

This is not stuff I really didn't already know, but for some reason this book has me on fire. Changing the way our family eats tomorrow. It's just on sense.
