Reviews

"Taubes stands the received wisdom about diet and exercise on its head."
--The New York Times "Well-researched and thoughtful. . . . Taubes has done us a great service by bringing these issues to the table."
--The Boston Globe "Compelling and convincing. . . . Taubes breaks it down for us from historical and, more importantly, scientific perspectives."
--Philadelphia Daily News "Taubes's critique is so pointed and vociferous that reading him will change the way you look at calories, the food pyramid, and your daily diet."
--Men's Journal "Taubes is a science journalist's science journalist, who researches topics to the point of obsession--actually, well beyond that point--and never dumbs things down for readers."
--Scientific American "Important. . . . This excellent book, built on sound research and common sense, contains essential information."
--Tucson Citizen "This brave, paradigm-shifting man uses logic and the primary literature to unhinge the nutritional mantra of the last eighty years."
--Choice "Less dense and easier to read [than Good Calories, Bad Calories] but no less revelatory."
--The Oregonian "An exhaustive investigation."
--The Daily Beast "Backed by a persuasive amount of detail. . . . As an award-winning scientific journalist who spent the past decade rigorously tracking down and assimilating obesity research, he's uniquely qualified to understand and present the big picture of scientific opinions and results. Despite legions of researchers and billions of government dollars expended, Taubes is the one to painstakingly compile this information, assimilate it, and make it available to the public. . . . Taubes does the important and extraordinary work of pulling it all together for us."
--Seattle Post-Intelligencer "Clear and accessible . . . Taubes's conviction alone makes Why We Get Fat well worth considering."
--Bookpage "[Taubes] is helping to reshape the conversation about what makes the American diet so fattening."
--Details "Taubes is a relentless researcher."
--The Washington Post Book World "[Taubes's] major conclusions are somewhat startling yet surprisingly convincing. . . . His writing reflects his passion for scientific truth."
--Chicago Sun-Times
