The Starch Solution

Dr. McDougall's latest book, The Starch Solution, is being released in May, 2012, and the web site for the book has just been activated. You can see some of the Star McDougallers' stories, see what foods you can eat that will help lead to weight loss and better health, but not much more.

And I really don't like how Prevention Magazine is marketing this - a free gift upon ordering, 4 payments of $6.75 each (It's only $17.81 on Amazon when pre-ordered), return at any time for a refund ("even 20 years from now," says the ad). All the links that appear to go to recipes all go to the order form. Sounds like a huckster instead of a serious promotion of an important book.

I already pre-ordered mine, but don't think I'll be reading anything Dr. McDougall has already written before or said in a free on-line lecture. I hope for his sake that Prevention really promotes this, including getting him appearances on the talk shows, and he doesn't blow it.
