Is “How Not to Die” Worth Buying?
This book is a very easy read.
Although the page length may be daunting, trust us when we say that you will breeze through this book. It has a very readable style and the reader never feels like they are reading a diet book.
Reading the book almost feels like talking to an old friend who is giving you diet advice.
The information in the book is also top-notch. Everything is backed up with references (there are close to 150 pages of references), so you know that what you read in the book is backed up by actual scientific studies.
The actual diet that the book proposes is not difficult to follow in the slightest.
For those who are curious, the book essentially advocates for following a largely plant based diet that is rich in leafy vegetables.
The idea is that the nutrients in the vegetables will help keep you alive and healthy. Likewise, the book also advocates for cutting out junk food, processed food etc.
A lot of diet books force you to radically change the way you live your life, but this book gives you plenty of ways to stick to the diet, without making your life extremely difficult.
We do not really have any complaints about the book itself, but the e-book version does have some issues. Namely, it suffers from poor formatting.
If you were planning on getting this on your e-reader, do yourself a favor and buy the paperback version, it is much easier to read.
