Gluten Intolerance Quarterly, Spring 2009
“‘The First Year’ is such a practical, well-written guide to the disease and the gluten-free lifestyle that it should be a part of a starter kit that doctors give newly diagnosed patients.”
“A glossary, FAQ, gluten-free baking Q and A and an extensive list of Celiac support groups in the U.S. give readers the tools they need adapt to life without gluten. I highly recommend this book, not only for those newly diagnosed with Celiac disease but for anyone curious about this not so rare autoimmune, genetic disease.”
