Some basic juicing information is given along with lots of recipes. But some of the information on juicing is taken straight from Jay Juiceman’s book, right down to a few unsited direct quotes. The part that bothers me is that she fails to give him any credit anywhere in the book, not even a recommended reading list. So if it’s more juice recipes you’re after, get this book, if it’s more detailed information on juicing, get the book she quietly used as a source _The Juiceman’s Power of Juicing_ by Jay Kordich.

Frankly, this book was kind of a disappointment. I bought it thinking it would have a lot of interesting recipes in it. “Over 200 recipes” is claimed in the cover. But many of these combinations I could have thought up myself and they are very simple. The soups, smothies, and sorbet sections are very short with few recipes. Also, the English terminology/spellings can be annoying. Nutritional breakdown of every recipe would be helpful, but it is just given for the fruits and vegetables. I am sure the nutrition changes somewhat when you juice something. The color pictures are also not even in the same section as the recipe, which is also annoying. However, the quantities given for the amount of fruits/veggies you need to make the juices will be helpful. It also gives some basic information on each fruit/vegetable and what they are touted for. This is not a terrible book, but just not what I expected. If you want simple recipes and have no creativity, this may be the book for you. If you are looking for in-depth information and better recipes, this is not what you are looking for.
I found this book an excellent information source for nutritional information on fruit and vegetable juices. It is well organized and indexed by primary fruit and vegetable and contains a section on spicy elements such as ginger root and garlic which can be used to add zest to the juice. Rather than a purely medicinal type book, it has recipes and illustrations for some really tasty treats. My favorite is a carrot parsnip combination with a little parsley ad lib. I use this book every day and recommend it to anyone who wants good health with good taste.
