As a personal fitness trainer and nutritionist, I am constantly being asked if this or that book is good. So, I read A LOT of fitness and diet/nutrition books. Many have "pearls" that the reader can take and use---even if they aren't a 100% great book.I REALLY like Mr. Pollan's book. It is very easy to read, very practical, user-friendly and most of all I really like that it is not filled with "fillers" or nonsense like many fad diet books are. This isn't so much even a diet book, as just a great reference from which to learn about practical, healthy eating...in a fun way.So, definitely pick this up. One of the only books that I like better than this, and actually give to ALL of my training clients is: "Build Your Mind, Your Body Will Follow". That book, which is an easy read, helps you focus on yourself, understand proper motivation and puts the reader on the course to accomplishing any fitness goal they identify!! So, if you are about to diet, read "Build Your Mind, Your Body Will Follow" first.Great book, terrible ebookby SaraCharm

Well, I bought this ebook to have on my nook. It downloaded properly into my B&N library, but won't even open in the nook. Tried over several days, let battery drain, archived/unarchived it, rebooted nook, and downloaded it a couple of times. Bummer. 5 dollar training seminar on which publishers to be wary of.
