Review:

Diabetes Educator, December 2011
“Overall, The Low GI Handbook is one of the few resources that makes decoding the GI scale a lot easier. It takes complex science and communicates it in a manner that is easy to understand by the average consumer. The authors present accurate, empirically sound content with key points repeated throughout each chapter in bold type, reinforcing reader comprehension.”
