Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eldra | 2/14/2014

    " I wonder how much healthier a nation we'd have if even half the population read this book BEFORE they turned forty? "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Judy Knight | 2/12/2014

    " This is a book recommended by my phisician. I finally have an understanding of the Omega-6 and Omega-3 fats in our diets. The chemistry is a little heavy but Dr. Weil tries to keep his topics gaged to the average reader; he promotes an anti-inflamatory approach to eating. He definitely has a great approach to aging--not the normal anti-aging search so popular in our society. This book would be helpful for anyone to read. "

    " A quick and interesting read; most of it you already know the common sense parsts, but there is more to be learned,; it is a good pep talk for making healthy choices as you get older. Not an in-depth treatment of the topic, but inspiring of more research on a personal level. "
