I certainly learned a lot from this book about how awful Crohn's disease can be. And it can be truly awful, but especially awful for a person who loves to eat good food. The author's vivid descriptions of his never ending hunger and explosive (literally) bouts with the disease are, well, scary and nauseating. The book is well written, but I tired of his continual obsession with food and the gross descriptions of the symptoms of the disease. Crohn's is a messy and painful disease. And one that I am so glad that I don't have. That's what I got from this book.
