“I often call my medical thrillers ‘Cook Books,’ but Eat Right for Your Sight is a wonderful real one that proves Benjamin Franklin’s adage that an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure!”
Robin Cook, MD, best-selling author and physician

“This isn’t just a cookbook for eye health, it’s a blueprint for healthy eating in general. I love all the nutrition tips: combine spinach and strawberries to maximize your iron absorption; add roasted squash to hummus puree to boost your vitamin A intake. And it really should be called Eat Right Tonight. There are so many dishes I want to make right now. Grilled Oysters. Pumpkin Pappardelle. Pear and Raspberry Galette. If this is health food, I want to see the light!”
