The Dr. Sears T5 Wellness Plan: Transform Your Mind and Body, Five Changes in Five Weeks
I recently read a copy of The Dr. Sears T5 Wellness Plan: Five Changes in Five Weeks by William Sears and Erin Sears Basile. The book is filled with solid information, but overall, I found it to be filled with the same information that you can find in almost any current health book. I did find that the book had some healthy and motivating tips, but I often found that they almost were hidden in the midst of so much other information…almost as if I was reading a health and nutrition college textbook. I appreciated that the information given was based on facts and that Dr. Sears showcased the science behind everything, but for me this book was a little overwhelming. I enjoy reading lifestyle books, but I prefer them to be quick reads filled with checklists or tips and precise guides, not so much detail on the science behind it all, but again, that is just a personal preference. I found the book to also be a little gimmicky in terms of how often they referred to a specific product, such as Juice Plus. It almost felt as if Juice Plus had sponsored the book and should have been mentioned as part of the title. I have no problem with Juice Plus, but that is just how it came across in reading. I have followed Dr. Sears for years and read several of his books, but this book was just not for me. I did enjoy the strong relationship that Dr. Sears and his daughter seem to carry throughout the book. They do feel like they work well together as a team. I am thankful to have received a copy of the book because I do believe that I can go back and reread and highlight the basic tips and tricks that are most important to me and implement them into my own lifestyle. I know even small changes can make drastic changes.
After editing at City Book Review for a few years, I took up the duties of editorial assistant, which include assigning books for review, posting reviews to our various sites, and nagging reviewers for things. In my non-nagging time, I’m a gamer, artist, writer, and notorious black thumb/bane of plants. My answer to every book-related question: read Octavia Butler.
