This is the perfect book for anyone starting out juicing with lots of questions, or someone who wants good recipes "prescribed" for specific conditions. It is filled with loads of easy to understand nutritional information. When people express interest in juicing as a diet or lifestyle, I recommend this book and the movie "Fat, Sick and Nearly Dead". The benefits are so immediate (energy, weight loss, general health), it is very easy to stick with. This is the perfect place to start!
