Reviews

It's not often that a book changes my life in a mere three chapters ... given my usual reluctance to jump on any nutritional bandwagon, I reckon this makes Tim Spector's work a rather compelling read. ... It's truly eye-opening stuff, and we owe it to ourselves and the 100 trillion friends inside our bodies to read this book - LITERARY REVIEWI don't read diet books and I certainly never plug them, but The Diet Myth is a worthy exception that provides new insight into why we should think twice about what we put in our mouths - THE TIMESA fascinating and original look at the impact of food on our bodies underpinned by cutting-edge researchA great book ... a lovely, easy, urbane read ... And it's very convincing. I'd advise anyone pondering a diet this season to read it first - The Food Programme, Book of the Year, BBC Radio 4Several popular books have appeared this year about our microbial guests, focusing on their role in promoting human health - and Spector, a world leader in genetic studies of twins, has written the best of them - Financial Times, Books of the Year
