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.
Chris Hayden has been working at City Book Review since 2012, so that makes him the keeper of knowledge. He manages the office and book reviewers (all 200 of them!), which is no small feat. If you’re looking at the book reviews here, you’re seeing them because he sent the books out for review. Without him, this place would fall apart, because no one else in the office knows how to use the postage machine. Two words: job security.
