Richard C. Dean (

"The book, Macrobiotics for Dummies, by Verne Varona, is the most user friendly health book on the market right now. There is a glut of books about macrobiotics and how to treat all of our health ills, but the thing that distinguishes this gem is the way it is written by Mr. Varona so that the reader can understand the information and immediately put it to use. The author's warmth and humor shines through every page and the reader feels like a friend is sharing his 40 years of macro experience with you, personally. Additionally, this book addresses more than nutritional needs. It details how one can change ALL aspects of life, including emotional, spiritual and nutritional perspectives while encouraging us to find meaning in our lives. If you want to make a profound shift in your attitudes, even if you are not macrobiotic, treat yourself to Macrobiotics for Dummies and your life will never be the same!"
