Editorial Review(s)

“Sylvia Bower and her partners, Mary Kay Sharrett and Steve Plogsted, have written a comprehensive guide to living with celiac disease and gluten sensitivity. As Sylvia points out, we’ve taken ‘giant steps’ forward in the diagnosis and treatment of celiac disease since the publication of her first book in 2006. With this edition, Sylvia offers the same down-to-earth guidance for the newly diagnosed, and Mary Kay provides terrific guidance about navigating the gluten-free diet. I would definitely recommend this book for anyone wishing to learn more about how to live both gracefully and gratefully with celiac disease and gluten-related disorders.” —Alessio Fasano, MD, Director, Center for Celiac Research, Massachusetts General Hospital
