I've had a recent diagnosis of Gluten Intolerance and I was looking for a good book to teach me what I need to know to avoid wheat. I was completely overwhelmed with all the choices of books on "Gluten Free" living. However, having had excellent luck with other "Dummies" Books, I decided to get this one. I am SO glad I did!This book is totally comprehensive. It covers everything from getting the diagnosis to recognizing covert gluten ingredients to how to change your favorite recipes to make them gluten free and so much more.I expected to need to buy another book or two after this one to get a complete education on gluten free living, but now I don't need to - this book really taught me everything I needed to know.It is kind of scary to find out you have to stop eating wheat for the rest of your life - it can seem so overwhelming because wheat feels like it is in EVERYTHING at times. This book broke it down and made the lifestyle MUCH more managable for me.She also has a really good chapter on dealing with negative feelings regarding this kind of diagnosis. I have not dealt with the negative feelings she describes [my health has improved SO vastly that I can honestly say I don't miss wheat at all!], but I think that chapter would be incredibly helpful for people who ARE struggling with their diagnosis.The other thing I loved about this book is that it is so readable. The author is a great writer - she is witty, she includes little anecdotes from her life to help you understand what she's teaching, and the book is really entertaining to read. I was very afraid that it might be dry and "medical text book" type reading, but it is not at all. It is a fun, enjoyable read.
