This is a quick, easy-to-read book that really helps guide the reader to understand what's best for their own health without shouting the do's and don'ts of what a person thinks they SHOULD be doing into their ear. Instead, the author encourages us to find what works best for ourselves whenever it comes down to our health. Patel does a great job of letting us know that we are the boss of our body and that we should be our own advocates. I also learned something that I knew all along, really, but needed to be reminded of--I have to be selfish in order to be healthy. She stresses this a lot and I'm glad she does; there is great advice in this book about it. Speaking of "stress", it affects the body in so many ways and the author acknowledges that very well. I liked the advice Patel gives in general, the workbook-like questions that honestly make you think about your health and yourself, and just how well-written this book is. The only thing that bothered me a bit was how many case studies were involved. It became a bit of an interruption for me now and then. Overall, however, I would recommend this book and I enjoyed it.
