Don't Even Think About Going Under The Knife Until You Read This Mar 7, 2008
Everyone wants to look like they did when they were young. I always assumed that the only way to achieve it was some painful medical procedure (visions of the skin on my face being pulled back and stapled behind my ears). Then I read Forget the Knife. You will be amazed at all of the effective non-invasive cosmetic procedures that are available. Dr. Covey hit this topic out of the park. If you're thinking about cometic surgery, read this amazing and well written book first.
Helpful book for general knowledge of non-surgical treatments Apr 24, 2007
What a great book! I've been wanting to get rid of the wrinkles and fine lines on my face but I do not want to have surgery. A friend of mine gave me this book to read and now I have a better understanding of my options and I know the right questions to ask my doctor. And I was able to use some of Dr. Covey's advice about skin care right away! Thank you to my friend and thank you Dr. Covey for writing such an easy to read and well organized book. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for useful information on how to look younger and better.
A great easy-to- follow primer on a complex set of topics Mar 11, 2007
It is very rare to come across a book that simplifies a complext set of topics without talking down to readers. This one does it with chapters that are easy to follow and content that is complete. Non-invasive cosmetic procedures can provide people with solutions that are highly effective, affordable and do not require surgery. Forget the Knife discusses the full range of options in a very objective way. I highly recommend it.
