Prevention's Healthy One-Dish Meals in Minutes: 200 No-Fuss, Low-Fat Recipes for Busy People
Jean Rogers (Editor), Prevention Magazine Health Books (Corporate Author)
0875962696


·
 
Book Review
Prevention's Healthy One-Dish Meals in Minutes delivers on every promise in its lengthy moniker. Hard to believe, but you still need to add a word--delicious. This book is excellent for beginning, unsure, or disorganized cooks, as well as for anyone more experienced and health-conscious. The food is interesting middle-of-the-road fare, mostly using meat, poultry, and seafood in modest 4-ounce portions, and lots of non-fat or reduced-fat products. The Express Recipes, ready in 15 minutes, are amazing. In 20 to 30 minutes, recipes for intelligently updated classics will also win smiles.

Striking Back: The Munich Olympics Massacre and Israel's Deadly Response
Aaron J. Klein
1400064279
December 2005
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Told in remarkable detail, author Klein (Time's Jerusalem correspondent) chronicles the tragic Israeli hostage massacre at the 1972 Munich Olympics and the secret assassination campaign that followed. The execution of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches by members of Black September is presented as the result of the colossal ineptitude of West German and Bavarian officials. From this horrific event, the author departs on a fascinating examination of the Israeli response-a shadow war in which "Mossad combatants...were charged with carrying out the assassination orders, which had been passed down from Golda Meir to each successive prime minister." The Mossad quickly identified assassination targets for their involvement in the Munich Massacre; as the program evolved, however, the Mossad's goals expanded, creating a...

Prevention's Healing With Vitamins : The Most Effective Vitamin and Mineral Treatments for Everyday Health Problems and Serious Disease
Prevention Magazine Health Books (Corporate Author), et al
0875962920
July 15, 1996
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
Fans of Prevention magazine, familiar with its enthusiasm for nutritional supplements, will probably welcome having its suggestions handy in a single volume. Brief descriptions of 16 minerals, seven trace minerals and seven vitamins give for each an official Daily Value (if known; otherwise, the Estimated Safe and Adequate Daily Dietary Intake), as well as good food sources of the nutrient and advice on using it safely. Oddly, zinc is with the vitamins, not with the other minerals. Next is a catalogue of health problems from Age Spots to Yeast Infections, with some entries rather lengthy (Osteoporosis runs a dozen pages). In general, the editors take a fairly conservative approach, citing research studies and noting when findings are preliminary or merely suggest that a given nutrient may be effective. Each entry...

Mental health ailments, such as guilt, anxiety, grief, and shyness, also get their due. Gottlieb's...

From Publishers Weekly
Health care gets another draught of do-it-yourself spirit in the updated version of this 1990 bestseller (some 16 million copies were sold, and it was translated into more than 20 languages). Employing advice culled from hundreds of doctors, the editors present an A-to-Z of common ailments from asthma to menopause to warts, and multiple suggestions about what to do about them. Included within are "8 Tips to Stop the Cough," "14 Soothing Ideas" for lactose intolerance, "12 Comforting Steps" for vaginal infections and "35 Hints for a High-Energy Life." The advice isn't always assured-e.g., witch hazel for cold sores is something patients "claim...really helps"; and "theoretically, it is possible" that phenol could kill the herpes simplex 1 virus-but there's more than enough solid ideas to make this volume...
