How did Mary Shelley, an 18-year-old girl come to write Frankenstein, the world's greatest horror story and prophecy about the dangers of modern science? Combining Oriental visual diagnosis, Nine Star Ki, and the I Ching, Alex Jack explores why Mary and her husband, poet Percy Shelley, adopted a natural diet, and the role food plays in her famous novel and the entire Romantic movement. (At the end of his life, Lord Byron was eating primarily rice and veggies.) He offers a complete visual diagnosis of the Monster as well as insights into what kinds of food creates such monstrous features and behavior. In profiles of other great figures who contributed to the modern scientific method, Alex looks at Descartes, Newton, Galileo, and Napoleon.
