"A Renewed You" is a companion for life. Its down to earth, simple pragmatice approach to achieving and maintaining optimal health will appeal to individuals irrespective of their level of intellect, vocation in life, or current life style." -- Milton and Vivienne Vassall
A lighthearted, easy to read, easy to understand, communicative (book) which will appeal to both medical and non-medical readers. Of particular merit is his use of jokes to illustrate fundamentally important health facts. A method of 'infotainment' which, to my mind, is the best way of teaching and communicating. -- Professor Errol Morrisson, Pro-vice Chancellor, University of the West Indies, Mona, Jamaica.
Dr. Pesaud's book is the expression of a life-long, persistent desire to help people. This work is a distillation of a lifetime of real and practical experiences and is valuable reading for people living a busy, stressed, high-tension life. -- Professor Vijay Naraynsingh, Professor of Surgery, University of the West Indies, Trinidad and Tobago.
