    I inhaled this book. some of it was a little bit too rushed, or too much info.. the recipes were dissapointing, im a microwave/cook from a box girl, i don't own a bread machine, haven't the foggiest what rice paper is. I was hoping since it was a dummies book, the recpies would be dummied down.. I'm cooking for myself and a 6 year old, im a single mom, i have no desire to make some gormet meal that all the cook books ive been seeing are telling me to make..bring on the gluten free mac and cheese and chicken tenders! not spring rolls, and chinese game hens. seriously now! but other than that the book was awesomly informative, and very helpful sometimes.

    Much of this book is lifted from Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living. Is it better? Well, depends on what you like. This book is heavily formatted, and if you like the dummies style of formatting, you will probably really like this book. I have a few issues with the dummies style. It's a formula, which means that the information has to fit a certain mold. This results in a couple of problems: hyper-presentation, where the information is presented as quickly as possible, and glut, where there are chunks that aren't really needed in the book, but are there because they're part of the formula. Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living and this book have a lot of information in common, but they do have some differences. For instance, this book presents the gluten-free diet in context of the glycemic index. Wheat Free, Worry Free has information about where research is headed for those with gluten intolerance. So, which do I prefer? Wheat-Free, Worry-Free: The Art of Happy, Healthy Gluten-Free Living. But which would you prefer? Could be either. I'd say, peruse them both and see which appeals to you.But, I still haven't found what I would consider THE book to present the gluten-free lifestyle. (Maybe I'll have to write it.)

    I really like the "...for Dummies" books and this one did not disappoint. It was very informative, gave lots of resources and cleared some things up for me! On to the next chapter of my life...

    Not so very long ago, the vast majority of people had no idea what gluten was let alone how the mysterious substance affected the body. Those who were put on gluten-free diets for health reasons were pretty much left on their own as even most doctors and dieticians had no clue about which foods actually did or didn't contain gluten. Not only did this cause confusion but likely a lot of unnecessary suffering through the ingestion of gluten from foods that were thought safe, 100% gluten-free, and completely uncontaminated. Information is slowly spreading to the general public and more and more people are aware that Gluten is in wheat. This true but extremely limited knowledge (gluten is also found in all sorts of other cereal grains, additives, and commercial products) causes many people to believe that they can be supportive of their gluten-free friends or family members by simply not serving bread- how about rice with a generous helping of soya sauce (also high in gluten). Living Gluten-Free For Dummies simplifies the complexity of a gluten-free diet. This isn't one of those I want to lose weight diets it's an all or nothing lifestyle that has to be followed to the letter to produce the best results. The good news is that living gluten-free isn't about going without. There are plenty of gluten-free options.

    I must admit I am a fan at the "For Dummies" books. I find that they are well written, easy to read and overall enjoyable while presenting factual information on the topic at hand.As a new patient of Celiac Disease and therefore the "Gluten Free" life, I found this the best book thus far that I have read or skimmed. It has the nuts-n-bolts about Celiac, from the health problems to the how to fix. The book offers many suggestions on ways to approach the new diet including menus, recipes, eating out and ways to look at grocery shopping.The best section for me was the one that dealt with the emotions of anger, despair and overwhelm.I plan to add this book to my collection as a resource for myself, my family and friends.

    I found this to be a good reference with OK recipes. For gluten free recipes the whole family will eat I like Make It Fast, Cook It Slow: The Big Book of Everyday Slow Cooking more than this book . . . I kept it on the shelf for reference for the last month. I'm being tested tomorrow for Celiac and I imagine based on what the results of the test are whether I go out and buy a plethora of Celiac-themed books.

    This is the book that made me realize I had been living as a gluten-intolerant in a world of glutenous foods for 6 years. I'm so grateful for this book's helpful, humorous and honest writing, covering topics from the symptoms of a gluten intolerance to how to handle dinner parties with loads of foods you can't eat. I feel very prepared to take on this new lifestyle and confident that I can succeed.

    This was a much appreciated resource for me when I became gluten-free. It gives great encouragement and advice--including recipes--on how to make the transition. It entertained and inspired me. I should be recommending this to more people--and buy it, so I can have it on hand to lend out. I think it'd also be a helpful read for people who would like to know more about the GF diet for a loved one, friend, etc. This book is especially suited for parents who have children who must eat GF.

    If you're in NEED of going gluten-free then this is the book to read. The author wrote this based on her son having celiac disease. If you are just considering gluten-free as a way to have a healthier diet and possibly help with some minor ailments, but don't feel the need to be strict then you might want to consider reading a different book. The information is all good and backed by research resources, but heavily skewed toward people with celiac disease.

    When I first found out I had a sensitivity to Gluten, I had no idea where to start in order to change my lifestyle and begin healing. A friend of mine with Celiac disease recommended this book to me because she found it very helpful. It's full of easy to understand information about the latest tests and research about the negative health effects gluten has on our immune, neurological, and digestive systems. This book assisted me in implementing the changes I had to make on my journey to health.

    Family members were gluten-free, but I needed some help to get started. This book was helpful. It is written in the funny "dummy" style of quips, jokes and white space. Every question I thought of was answered in it. What is allowed -- what to watch out for -- eating out -- snacks -- all here. There was a recipe section as well.

    A friend gave me this book a few days after I found out that gluten could no longer be a part of my diet. It was a helpful first step in learning about eating a gluten free diet. Since I've been diagnosed there seem to be a ton of cookbooks out there with more challenging and creative dishes but this is a great way to ease into the gluten free lingo and basic dishes.

    This book was amazing. A perfect beginner book for someone interested in a gluten free diet. It talks a bit about the paleolithic diet (which is gluten free) as well. It is educational and entertaining. It is interesting, uplifting and encouraging. The way the book is written, you can read the whole book or just select sections that interest you most. I'd definitely recommend this book.

    Read cover to cover in a few hours. Some good information and a few moments of " yup, I've done that". Gave me a renewed outlook to following this lifestyle as it is possible, and the resources listed are helpful.

    I am finding this book very helpful while still learning to deal with my wheat allergy. I have other wheat free and gluten free books, but this one breaks it down into an easy to find/reference way. It also simplifies those medical explanations! I need a little simplification.

    If you just found out you have celiac this is the book for you. She boils everything down to a simple explanation for a sometimes devastating diagnosis. She has a delightful sense of humor, which made the book go down easy. I feel prepared to start this new chapter of my life!

    Very informative.While a lot of the information is redundant, and some of it seemed like extreme advice, it's a wonderful resource and alarmingly accurate. I specifically got this because it is in the For Dummies series.

    Great overview: not overwhelming or focusing on the scare factor of cross-contamination. Recommended by my doctor (who is also gluten and dairy free). Appreciate the tie-in between gluten and dairy sensitivities.

    Good book. Lots of useful information and recipes. Lots of ideas on living gluten-free without having to buy so many specialty items. I'm still trying to get my husband to read it, but I think it'll take a few more pushes for that to happen.

    This was the 1st purchase I made after being Diagnosed with Celiac Disease. It was the most important purchase I made in the year after my diagnoses. Now my life is split in two.... Before CD and After CD

    I enjoyed this book, it's entertaining and upbeat. The author is earthy and no-nonsense and gives helpful informational advice and recipes for living gluten-free. This is a very good basic reference book for this lifestyle.

    Fantastic guide and a must have when starting the Gluten Free lifestyle. The advice is homey and down to Earth. I know I will be referring to this book over and over and over as my family goes down the Gluten Free/Casein Free diet path.

    Very educational being new to a GF diet. Discovering that GF flour is not a 1 to 1 substitute for wheat flour will have undoubtedly saved me from baking mishaps in the future. Lists of grains I never knew existed.

    This book was my go to resource when I began to eat a gluten free diet. A lot of the information was not relevant to my situation but the rest was easy to understand. I was constantly using it as a reference until I knew exactly what I could and couldn't eat.

    This book is a must read if you are living on a gluten free diet, thinking about switching over or you know someone living on a gluten free diet.This is the most informative book I have read about gluten free living, and it is filled with great recipes.

    I would recommend this book to anyone that needs to be on the Gluten Free Lifestyle. It is very informative and has some recipes as well. I have read the book and bookmarked several pages. Very useful book. Read the month of August 2013 and use it as a reference book. :-)
