Library Journal Review

Null, who has a Ph.D. in human nutrition and public health science, has written more than 50 books and has a syndicated radio program on health. One can only hope that what was omitted to reduce 1000-plus pages to a six-hour recording is not significant information that would affect the results of using any of the therapies or regimens. Oddly the work is not narrated by the author, who as a radio-show host obviously has public-speaking experience; it is competently presented by reader Robert Deyan. Anyone who wants to follow any of Null's advice would probably want the written version for review and reference. Purchase for public libraries where demand warrants.--Nann Blaine Hilyard, Lake Villa Dist. Lib., IL (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
