Judge for yourself. It is your health, indeed your life that may be at risk if you take the advice of a "salesman" over a health official.

I've seen the infomercials before. And I don't get why people would actually believe that. The infomercial seems so fake, why would any person actually buy that. I'm a sucker for gimmicks, and even I can tell they are trying to screw people over. The only things these books do is give false cures for something that should be taken care of by a professional. They should be responsible for all the medical bills that they cause. The whole idea of a book of cures is just a stupid idea, how can one man come up with a book of cures for every disease known to man, even herpes, yes, you too can cure herpes!!! All you need is a sprig of rosemary and five gallons of your finest drug store whiskey!!! This one man, or multiple people (I think I have heard on the infomercial before that they have a team working on this) come up with so many different cures for so many diseases. If you look at it from a common sense point of view, only an idiot would buy these things.

The only things these books do is give false cures...

Actually, as was posted by someone before, if you actually read the book ( I have a copy for reference) there are NO cures in the book, not a one. Not even the hint at one. He rants on and on about all the cures that medical science is hiding from us.

That the Docs "make us sick in order to keep us coming back". Well, I don't know what planet he is from, but I would not continue to go to a doc that made me or kept me ill all the time.

And all those evil pharmacological companies that want to just take your money and not give you anything in return (sounds like a perfect description of Kevin Trudeau, selling a worthless book with no information in it).

It is, but it isn't. You can sell a book, that is blue in color as "The Green Book"; false advertisement ? Yes on one hand, on the other, the "freedom of speech" laws are on his side. The book simply claims there are these cures, and when you go to his web site you find you must pay for them (and soon you discover that you pay again and again).

Absolute bogus. This guy is just another scammer. I read the book (library, not mine)and it didn't have any "cures" in it. Absolute bogus.

Exactly, so he gets you to go to his web site to find the "real" secrets. And then, from there, you have to subscribe, where he will over charge you to tell you that staring into the setting sun (last hour only) will cure you of all your ills. I have a few close relatives that have been sucked into this "I've got a secret and they are all out to surpress it....right along with little green men, and the need to cover yourself in tin foil to keep the 'mind altering rays' out of your head", garbage. That and oil fields for pennies on the dollar....sigh

It just saddens me that people like Kevin Trudeau and Rhonda Byrne (of "The Secret" fame) can write complete b.s. like this and make so much money off of it. People are so unhappy and lazy these days and just want a quick fix. :(

That and they love a good mystery. Give them "Conspiracy Theory" and watch the ole imaginations fly ! *sigh*

Those I mention that got this book because they believe ! also invested a lot of money into the Oil fields scam .... it is sad.

Gah - my partner fell for it and bought his book. Complete and utter garbage, interspersed with lots of "the Man doesn't want you to know this" paranoia.

He *is* a great marketer though. You could learn a lot from watching this guy at work - after you finish reading The Prince as a warm-up...

It is sad to see people fall into the "conspiracy theory" frame of mind. Once entrenched, one can never convince them of anything else, ever.....they must come out of "Wonderland" with Alice and get back to reality.

Books like "None Dare Call It Conspiracy" , "They Walk Among Us", "The Da Vinci Code" and movies like "National Treasure", "Conspiracy Theory" and "The Chariots of the Gods" all have their Alice in Wonderland appeal, but are as contextual as "The Journal of Irreproducible Results" but much more sinister in nature as the former promote themselves as truths, the latter as humor.

Oops, another mistake: The Chariots of the Gods, is a book, and I have no idea if it was ever made into a movie or not, but I recommend "Crash Go the Chariots" as a follow up on the book for those interested in the truths of the matter.

I've seen his infomercials many a time...always insisting that you'll learn cures to diabetes, depression and such as soon as you buy his book.

These relatives I spoke of, bought it for me.....I keep it as a reference to just how little he says in it, and just how dumb some of what he does say, is.
