Review by Kelli Haines:
In five minutes and with the click of a few buttons, my computer screen is graced with a copy of the Fresh Network's brand new e-book "? Raw: Your Biggest Questions Answered (By 12 of the world's leading experts)." And yes, they are the biggest most common and important questions that people are asking today, to the tune of 277 pages packed full of invaluable information.
The 12 panelists that were chosen are an impressive array of well respected raw food experts coming from diverse backgrounds and methods of living and practicing the raw food diet. This e-book is perfect for everyone from the novice to the veteran raw foodist and covers an extensive range of subjects from juicing to superfoods to fruitarianism to raising children. Come to think of it, I don't know what isn't covered. This book would also be terrific to give to skeptical friends or family when you don't feel equipped or willing to do any defending, explaining or convincing.
I found the format especially reader-friendly because of the way they laid it out. The questions are listed in each section and then the answers are given from all the panelists under the question, so there's no need to search around under each panelist's profile for their answers. They are all in one place. By taking what can often be confusing or controversial questions and sometimes conflicting answers and delineating them in this way, you easily see the basic underlying truths and fundamentals of what each person is saying and you are also more aware of the points on which they all agree.
Whereas you would assume that you would be reading a bunch of opinions that don't agree and walk away more confused than ever, that is not the case at all. Quite the contrary; you come away with a much more balanced and profound understanding of these various subjects with possibly some new and completely unexpected new insights. At the end of the sections they also have a little box that tells you 'in a nutshell' a quick summary of where the panelists stand on each subject, broken down into ratios. For those who are interested in a quick glance at what the majority says on any given subject, this is ingenius!
Also, I felt that by the time the reader gets done going through all of the answers to a particular question, they are armed with all the information they need from a variety of angles to make their own well informed decisions regarding their current dietary needs. While the one-size-fits-all dietary dogma has been found sorely lacking, the healing, cleansing power of the raw foods diet is gaining momentum. Consequently, this information couldn't have come at a better time.
I find this ebook a priceless addition to my library (even if it is only on the screen). I already know I will be referring to it often. Every possible raw food question I have is covered in great detail and some of the answers will astound you.
By accessing the expertise and wisdom of a variety of raw food leaders who sometimes do and sometimes don't agree on all the finer details of the raw food lifestyle, the reader gets a balanced and well rounded view to the answers to some very important questions from some very special people who know what they are talking about and have spent years arriving at these conclusions. You can't just go down to a local health provider and find out this information. And now we can have it at our fingertips thanks to the dedicated efforts of Sarah Best and the Get Fresh! staff, along with the caring and devoted raw food experts who generously gave of their time and knowledge.
I hope that all who read this book will find their diets as balanced and nourishing as are these answers to raw foodists' most pressing questions. - Kelli Haines
