From Library Journal:

Scientist Kurzweil, author of The Age of Intelligent Machines ( LJ 3/11/91) and LJ 's Futurecast column, was diagnosed as having high cholesterol, early onset diabetes, and a great chance of having a heart attack. Because he had only modest improvement following the American Heart Association guidelines of 30 percent fat intake, Kurzweil began intensive research to develop a plan to improve his health. His study indicated that in societies where heart disease and cancer are virtually nonexistent, the dietary fat intake is 10 percent. By combining a diet of 10 percent fat intake with other significant lifestyle changes, he reduced his own risk of heart disease by 97 percent in fewer than two years. Dividing his book into two sections, Kurzweil first discusses his research in a question-and-answer format. In Part 2, he lays out his "10% solution" of lifestyle change, including eating (with food charts and recipes), weight control, exercise, and stress control. Appendixes include an extensive bibliography; various nutrition, body fat, and progress charts; and a glossary. Kurzweil's research is impressive, his style eminently readable, his enthusiasm contagious and his challenge to our American lifestyle and the medical community powerful. Highly recommended.
