In this small book the author tells much about current fallacies promoted by such writers as William Howard Hay, Benjamin Hauser and the other peculiar dietitians who have recently invaded the field of diet. He discusses as well the current reducing diets, such as the banana and skim milk diet, the Hollywood diet and the milk farms. The book is nicely written and quite authoritative. The title would seem to have been unfortunately chosen, since it is far more sensational than the content. The book may well be recommended by all physicians to patients who are interested in being disillusioned relative to the fallacies that recur again and again in the field of nutrition.
