I thoroughly enjoyed this book. It was thin, but it seemed to be packed with information. This is NOT the book for you if you want peer-reviewed scientific references - read [b:Becoming Raw: The Comprehensive Guide to Eating a Nutritious Raw Diet|6942067|Becoming Raw The Comprehensive Guide to Eating a Nutritious Raw Diet|Brenda Davis|http://photo.goodreads.com/books/1282433783s/6942067.jpg|7175130] for that. However, this book is still based very much on logic and basic anatomy/physiology/comparative biology and the author's years of experience experimenting with a couple different raw diets. It just makes perfect sense to me to follow a diet like the one outlined in the book. I would have given it five stars (it's really more like 4.5), but there was no index, and I was left wondering about a couple important things: iodine and DHA. B12 was covered in here, but not the other two.
Frederic is not fanatical about eating purely raw food - he is more concerned with eating healthy foods in the proportions that are the most natural for a human to eat, and I really appreciated that. I don't believe that just because something is raw (such as concoctions made with tons of oil or agave nectar or large quantities of nuts/seeds) that it's healthy without question. For example, he still occasionally eats lightly steamed vegetables, including root vegetables, preferring to eat healthy cooked food over a raw gourmet recipe with 100-200 g fat per serving (I'm not exaggerating - some raw recipes have that kind of fat content!).

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0973093005, Paperback)

The Raw Secrets will help you live sustainably on the raw vegan diet and overcome the problems you may have encountered in doing so. Based on logical principles, this diet still often falls short of expectation. Instead of improvements in their health, many people see deterioration. Others experience less rejuvenation than they anticipated, or find themselves unable to maintain balance in the long-term. This results solely from a lack of understanding of the guiding principles of natural diet, from the widespread misinformation about it, and the gross errors that follow.

The Raw Secrets contains straight talk and rare wisdom from around the world on the most exciting, healthiest diet of all time — now gaining mass attention and acceptance. The 28, succinct chapters give unique insights on many topics affecting contemporary raw-foodists. Each holds dozens of tips to help you eat a pure, simple, nourishing diet.

If you are tired of the same, boring, repetitive information found in nearly every other book on the subject, then you're in for a surprise. If you seek groundbreaking research and a fresh perspective on raw eating, you will find them in The Raw Secrets.
