Too many Assumptions Jun 26, 2009
This book contains too many assumptions to be taken seriously. The old saying " give me one false assumption and I can prove anything " applies to this book. To better understand I use this example.....if you accept the assumption that 1+1=1, then I can prove I am the pope......if I am 1 and the pope is 1 then I am the pope because you accept the false assumption that 1+1=1. You must accept the assumption that there is a God for this book to apply. Don't waste your time on this book.

Book arrived very quick. Fantastic condition! Thanks for the great service! Love the content and recommendations offered by Dr. Ben Lerner
Good Book Mar 20, 2009
This is a good book, not a great or fantastic book but a good one. Dr. Lerner does a very good job of presenting healthy alternatives as well as easy to do exercises - even for those of us who have never ever exercised! However he needs to research some of his remarks more thoroughly, like that prior to his generation there was no structured exercise and that you can reverse some hereditary health issues. Like so many other health enthusiasts he thinks it is his way or no way, I was hoping that him being a Christian he would recognize the value of other opinions. Lots of good information, rather narrow view.
intersting ideas Mar 13, 2009
this book has interesting info, unsure if i agree with everything he says about meat, chicken and dairy though. also, not everyone can afford the food items he wants you to purchase, expensive. with our current economy it would be difficult for some people. i think he needs to be more realistic
