Review on Health Tips, Myths, and Tricks by Morton Tavel

 Health Tips, Myths, and Tricks. A Physicians Advice is in enriched nonfiction book written by Morton E. Tavel an M.D. This book was published by Brighton Publishing Company in 2015. I was fascinated by this book and had to look the author up. While reading about him, I learned that he wrote another book just like this, the Snake Oil is Alive and Well. Just by reading the title, the reader knows that this book is about your health.

Dr. Tavel wrote this book after he wrote Snake Oil is Alive and Well. As you read this, you will see that it is easy to read and understand. As you read, you will notice how well researched this book was.

This beautifully written book is divided into three parts. The first section talks about our health and how we can incorporate the tips in our life so that we can live long and healthy. Information in this section includes what we should eat and how much of what we shouldn’t eat to how to manage our weight and more insightful information. The second section is on Myths and the many conspiracies that people have about our health. The last section is about the Tricks that people will say or do to get us to pay for their product that is dangerous to our health.

The great thing about Dr. Tavel is that he includes his references on his information regarding the studies that he writes about. Even with its 280 pages, this book was fast-paced with its well thought out information. I loved that it had his references included at the end.

I love this book and will continue to flip through the many pages to reread the many health tips. I love that the author wrote a chapter on each topic, for example, he wrote about coffee, green tea, eating breakfast, weight, chocolate, foods to avoid, and many more.

I rate this book 4 out of 4 because it was well written and informative and Dr. Tavel backed up his opinions with extensive research. There were some minor errors. What really stood out for me was the amount of research that he did and that he genuinely cares about what he writes. This book would appeal to readers who are concerned about their health and want to make a change in their daily life. Readers who want to keep this book and always refer to the information all the time. This book wouldn’t be for people who don’t want to change their life.
