This book is not well written, repeating the same word, thought or idea many, many times, which becomes annoying after a while. The 177 pages could have been reduced by perhaps half if the stream of thought were planned and consolidated. Here, it's like someone trying to explain to another their personal view of why the world is how it is. We tend to ramble and repeat, ...more
I found this little book very informative, although I felt it repeated some things several times, and was a tad evasive: the protocol she builds up to is not fully revealed; the steps are explained but the everyday products to use are not given.

With any health related book, I always consider if the author is 'selling' product. To me, this usually raises red flags. With this book, however, the author is not selling anything other than her process.

I didn't realize the first 40% of this book would just be her ranting about how people don't understand their mouth bacteria. I just wanted to get to the stuff that really mattered. You know, the part where she tells us what we should do to be healthier and it took SO MANY pages to get there.
Slightly confusing, and I am someone that has a background in science, and has studied bacteria. Maybe her first book is better.
I received this book from Goodreads Giveaways.
