“Good Calories, Bad Calories” due out in paperback!

Gary Taubes’s book, Good Calories, Bad Calories, was an expose of how far the medical establishment has drifted from science-based advice on nutrition. The paperback version is due to be released on Sept. 23, 2008. If you haven’t bought it yet, now you can get it for less. I originally bought two copies, one to use and one to loan out, but I gave the loaner away, so I’ll be placing an order for a new one myself.

The new paperback is:
Good Calories, Bad Calories: Fats, Carbs, and the Controversial Science of Diet and Health. The list price is $16.95; Amazon’s price is $11.53. You can preorder it here: http://www.amazon.com/Good-Calories-Bad-Controversial-Science/dp/1400033462/ref=pd_bbs_sr_2?ie=UTF8&s=books&qid=1218910853&sr=1

The hardback is still available:
Good Calories, Bad Calories; Challenging the Conventional Wisdom of Diet, Weight Control, and Disease. The list price is $27.95; Amazon’s price is $18.45. Here’s the link: http://www.amazon.com/Good-Calories-Bad-Gary-Taubes/dp/1400040787/ref=pd_bxgy_b_img_b. This book and mine (!) are both listed as textbooks and Amazon is offering a special Fall Textbook discount on them.

I’ll be back soon to wrap up my Summer Adventures series.

The working title for my first book was, “You’ll Never Know What You Are Missing.” It summed up my goal: to make eating for health synonymous with eating for pleasure. Once you discover the secret, you will find that the very best food for weight management, longevity, the treatment and prevention of disease, and over-all health and happiness is also the most sumptuous, satisfying, and indulgent way of eating the world has to offer. You are invited to the feast. Enjoy!

Thanks so much for the info. I have wanted that book for quite awhile. I have “In Defense of Food” on my night table stack of books to read and wanted the Taubs book as a companion. Thanks.
