Book News and Reviews

“Thankfully, Davis, an award-winning health journalist, sorts it all out for us in this slender, handy guide to health and diet claims. Whether it's aspartame, high-fructose corn syrup, or gluten, Davis relies on only the best evidence to separate fact from half-truth and fiction...Davis includes a wealth of reliable references, and ends with ‘Ten Tips for Deciphering Diet and Nutrition Claims,’ a chapter worth the price of the book.”


“Robert Davis cuts through the fat and clears up the confusion about the diet and nutrition issues on everyone's minds in this unique, concise, easy-to-read book. Coffee Is Good for You will educate you, entertain you, and even make you laugh. A must-read for anyone who’s ever wondered whether or not to believe the hype.”

—Lisa “Hungry Girl” Lillien

“Robert Davis deftly blends wit, wisdom, keen insights, and a voice of unfailing reason. I will be recommending this great resource to everyone I know.”

—Dr. David Katz

—Carolyn O’Neil, MS, RD
Coauthor of The Dish

“This book is a gem. With clarity, wit and wisdom, Robert Davis debunks medical myths and gives the reader real information to rely on. This book is stuffed with nuggets and is a great read. It's as well referenced as most medical school textbooks...just a lot more fun.”
