Reviews:
  • romrom
The topic is fascinating, but the prose is sometimes pendantic. It's as if the author occasionally remembered this was supposed to be a scholarly work and tried to use more scientific words. Still, it's worth having if you're interested, as I am, in how diets go in and out of fashion.
  • Tat
