Good book... but....

The book as a whole is an excellent source for alternate wellness. The only downside that I found was that the audible version does not come with the recipes and appendix that are refered throughout the book. I had to go out and purchase the book, after purchasing the audible version, for the recipes and other references made in the book. Other than that it is an excellent well written book on preventative health.

Great information, but not good audio.

This would be a great book, in book form. For it to work in Audio form it needs more, that is to say there needed to be a PDF file attached that showed the recipes and figures that are referenced constantly in the book. There are too many references like see page xxx. I do not have the book to make that reference.
