First off, I completely disagree with the previous comment and how is someone with anorexia a good benchmark for what is healthy eating? I have every sympathy for anyone suffering with anorexia, but really, it is not a suitable guiding point for loosing weight the healthy way.
I found this book to really get down to what is actually in our foods, helping the reader to really make an informed choice about what goes into their bodies.
I was already a vegan prior to hearing about this book and having already done a great deal of research, felt I had a good knowledge base of the rubbish that is in dairy and meat, but even here I was enlightened further.
The book has some profanity, but no where near as much as the previous reviewer claims and it's all very tongue in cheek as well as honest and to the point, and if you don't want to hear the truth about what you put in your body then this isn't the book for you anyway.
It is broken down into easy sections and overall a very good read. Highly recommend for the intelligent and health conscious individual, not to mention the environmentally concerned.
It looses one star for the sole reason, that although there is mention of British food research, unless you have already done your research some parts are very American in their reference, so unless you already know about the subject, you may not know whether it applies to British Food Standards or not (a great deal does, bar the steroids), but overall it very much applies to food standards in the UK, which still makes for a wake up call.
Next I will be reading Skinny Bitch in the Kitch.
