6/10 Some good and some not so good
 
By Peter Silverman / Toledo, Ohio United States

The book has ten chapters. The first nine are on diseases -cancer, diabetes, irritable bowel, autism, diabetes, yeast, down syndrome, alzheimers and lactose intolerance. Half of each chapter is unncecessary from my perspective. Like a high school biology text, he describes the disease and its common treatments. Interesting perhaps, but it has little to do with probiotics. Then he tells what the probiotic solution is. The tenth chapter describes different probiotic delivery systems and he reviews different brands, none of which he sells or endorses.

The good parts of the book is that he gives an overview of what probiotics are being used for in disease treatment and prevention. He also reviews the different strains of good bacteria that have been isolated and that manufacturers are putting into their probiotics. He also describes different methods of probiotic delivery systems, including a special method - the Brudnak pulse and rotate method - for taking probiotics, essentially a strong initial dose for a period of time, rotating types of bacteria and then maintenance dosages.

Among the bad part of the book is that, while he is cautious and prudent in describing what probiotics and can and can't do, he oversells. Mainstream medicine is still undecided about probiotics because there have not been the types of studies done to prove benefits. He gives no clue as to this and simply describes what are really anecdotal medical reports of benefits (not statistically significant, not longitudinal and not double blind.) He also fails to describe in simple language what probiotics are, what bacteria is, how it functions, what is known and what isn't, and what types of studies would need to be done to determine the best strains, the best uses, the best dosages, etc. Instead, he gives pieces of information here and there and forces the reader to try to put them together.

Looking at Amazon and reading reviews, there appears to be a few better books on probiotics, but this is a decent introduction. The internet is also filled with information (google "probiotics").

Bottom line, he equipped me with enough knowlege to become an intelligent consumer, but he could have cut out a lot of the book unrelated to probiotics and added more basics on probiotics 101.

 
10/10 Great Book!
 
By Ellen Frantz / Coeur d Alene, Idaho United States

I am very impressed with the detail and obvious diligent research this author went through to give an overall study of probiotics.
Everyone whom I shared this book with immediately grabbed their pen and paper to write down the name of the book and author. I am very happy that I made this educational investment. Thank you!!

 
10/10 You've not told me anything yet - prove it.
 
By Paul / Ocean Springs, MS USA

I want proof before I buy - send me it and if it's truly worth it, I'll pay for it.

If it's what you say then you'll accept this offer.

Do you have the courage?
