"I love this book. It's not just that Michio has participated in it. It's also because a woman who has real experience in day-to-day macrobiotic cooking and has raised a child as well as taught macrobiotics to large numbers of people wrote it. The book very clearly addresses what macrobiotics is and how to bring these ideas to everyday life."
