The pandemic should have changed many attitudes towards understanding biology, and Food for Lifeis the newly scientifically semi-literate person's post-Covid go-to food book...I trust the author and his work. ― The Times, *Book of the Week*

Appealingly, Spector writes as a food lover... Every person's ideal diet is different, and should be based on sensible choices from a position of knowledge.

A fascinating tour d'horizon, deftly drawing on recent research... Well written [and] informative.―Literary Review

Spector has been exploding the myths around food and health for years... Here he continues the demolition job in a rigorously academic book that welcomes the layperson with open arms. ―The Times, *Books of the Year*
