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.

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.
