    This book is perfect for someone who has just been diagnosed with Celiac disease. My young son was diagnosed 4 years ago and I was diagnosed shortly after. I would have loved to have this book back then.
  • Nice for beginners

    Nice, informal book. Contains many great recipes. Not personally helpful for me because I have had celiac for many years and know all about this stuff, but for newly diagnosed patients this book is awesome.

    I wish I had read this three years ago. Doctors are so ignorant about celiac!
