Do not buy the ebook - choose the physical book...

Pros

  • Well Written

Cons

  • The charts are REALLY hard to see in ebook!!!!

Best Uses

    A good book and a good read but my review is specifically about the ebook - I just wish I had bought the physical book...**warning** the ebook while most pages are easy to read - you cannot enlarge the actual charts that have been used for the GI values (what the book is all about!!) - very very difficult to read as quite small and 'light' type which cannot be changed in ADOBE digital editions which is needed to open/read the ebook. Also the text in the charts cannot be 'searched' - (this was the main reason I chose the ebook) - so you cannot type in an item/product in the search bar to find it in the GI Values Charts (will find it anywhere else - but not in the charts). So I would recommend pay the extra and go for the actual book.

            Surprises doctors, nurses and dietitians that a lay person actually know something and sometimes things they don't know.

                It was a great book as I have a daughter who needs to eat low GI foods and the labelling on most foods is hard for find for low GI. This book gives the GI level of many common foods that we eat. It is great for knowing what brands to buy. Also surprising information on some foods that are very high in the Gl index, so overall a good reference book for me and my family.
