To calculate the overall star rating and percentage breakdown by star, we don’t use a simple average. Instead, our system considers things like how recent a review is and if the reviewer bought the item on Amazon. It also analyses reviews to verify trustworthiness.
I have had this book on my nightstand since it was released. Trying to read it but it is so boring and not much info that is new if you follow him regularly. He has some tips at the end of the book for weight loss which is probably all you really need and could skip most of the book. I will suffer through it to the end and then donate it. I don’t know if the tips will work for me or not. I don’t know when I will get to them because there are so many other interesting things to read which keep getting placed on top of this book. Bottom line I haven’t seen much new here, a few interesting things but you have to suffer through a lot as they are few and far between. I don’t think I will be purchasing his pandemic book nor any of his other books, his first was the best, his cookbook wasn’t appetizing at all, and this is just boring. I think he is turning too political and opinionated and less just the facts.
I agree with several others. If you read “How Not To Die” you do not need this book. The “how not to die” book gives plenty of reasons why to go Plant Based as a healthy lifestyle. If you have a friend who already bought the book all you need to read is pages 558-569 to give you diet ideas. “How Not To Die” totally changed our eating habits s for the past year. We both unintentionally lost weight, feel better and healthier.
I really wanted to give this 5 stars, and I had marked 4 stars when I started the review, but ... I HATE that they did not include the footnotes. The further I get into the book the more annoyed I am that they are not included. The customer shouldn’t have to either write a list of footnotes to check later or get their phone and scan the QR code every time they want to follow up with an included study or newspaper article. They should have either included them in the book or added a second book and sold it as a boxed set. Hence the 3-star review. I don’t think I’ve Ben this annoyed with what would otherwise be a great book in several years.
