it was ok

Iodine is one of the most important nutrients. Supplementing with it has transformed my health, as well as that of my wife. I give it to my son and to our dog. The importance of getting the message out to as many people as possible that basically everyone would benefit from supplementing with iodine is crucial. My rating, similarly as that for Brownstein's book on iodine, is the average between 4 stars for the importance of the subject, and 0 stars for the book as a book. Hence 2 stars.

This book is not a book. It's a collection of various bits and pieces of things written here and there, surely mostly on the web, and then put together in printed form. A huge part of it is in the form of the classic web page of FAQ, probably just cut and pasted from somewhere. Throughout the text are interspersed testimonials. The information about iodine is disorganised, and repeated in several places. Most of the first part is a kind of motivational, self-important, auto-biography presented as a kind of background to the author's research into iodine. Unfortunately, the essence and value of this research does not come across in the book. There is no structure to speak of, and all in all, it is very lacking in actual information.

If you are intersted in learning more about iodine, you can get most of the essential information on what you need to know about it in a succinct and structure presentation here:
