    Not exactly what expected, January 12, 2007

    This review is from: Natural Cures “They” Don’t Want You To Know About (Mass Market Paperback)
    The book is everything but not exactly what you would expect to get judging by the title. Kevin Trudeau constantly refers to his website where one supposedly would get full explanation for various topics. The only problem is that no one can get any explanation free of charge. Once you land at the website, you will realize that there is almost nothing that you could learn unless you come up with some kind of payment! Otherwise the book has some valid and valuable information. However, there are many other books at the market that discuss natural cures, stress reduction methods, proper nutrition, proper breathing techniques, yoga, etc. They are often not only much more informative but at the same time also cheaper. Just look around Amazon and you will find them. I find the best alternative to “Natural Cures” are books by Mikhail T. such as Cure the Incurable, or a longevity book titled Can we live… They are absolutely noncommercial and full of useful info. In addition, their website is not only free of any charges but also provides some free ebooks on other health issues.

    What a Sham!, May 23, 2005

    Joanne M. Stephenson (Victoria, BC) –

    And Kevin Trudeau doesn’t want you to know about them, either…
    I bought this book and couldn’t believe that this was the book advertized on television. First of all, there is not a single reference to a single natural cure in the entire book. I bought this book because of references made on the infomercial, and to my chagrin, not a single reference existed, was printed or noted in the book. I just could not believe it. Now, if he goes down, he will complain that it’s because the establishment is after him rather than that he and his newsletter (don’t bother with that, either) are cheating customers by not providing them with _any_ relevant information.
    I would save your pennies and not invest it here as his knowledge is not just lacking, but completely non-existent. It’s as though he picked up a couple of books on natural health and then sat down proclaiming himself an expert. The thing is, you need a great deal of knowledge to work in this field and just as important, a great deal of experience and feedback from dealing with customers to develop a compass as to where you should be going with regard to nutrition and health concerns.
    This was just a rage against the pharma-cartel (which is wholly justified, but cannot make up the entire book!) and some very basic knowledge on diet, nutrition, and the danger of additives that someone can easily access by researching natural health topics at any library (lookup enzymes, raw food diets, or Biogenic Living, for example) or by asking any questions of the knowledgeable personnel at any reputable health food store.
    When it arrived, I took one look through it, and immediately asked for my money back as I have worked in Natural Health Management for the past five years and have more than enough knowledge and experience in this realm to know _what_ I am talking about and am completely aware of when I’m being ‘fleeced.’
    I wouldn’t recommend this book if it were the last book on earth on the subject…

    Did you really think he was going to tell you for free?, July 27, 2005

    Kevin Trudeau is in it for the money as well as most everybody else. He tries however to come across as that person who is going to heal the world. He is a great sales person and has been able to sell so much to so many. What has he really done to save the human race from itself? In my opinion not a whole lot but he done very well for himself. I do not believe for one moment that all the infomercials he has done, he has done for free.

    On the other hand, there are a lot of suckers in this world. And if they think that they are going to get something for nothing (or cheap), sales will be high. In fact sales are high and that’s why Kevin is in the thick of it making all he can while the getting is good.

    Bottom line is that Kevin is going to hang that preverbal carrot in front of a lot of people who will follow that carrot with their wallets. And he will continue to dangle that carrot until the preverbal donkeys wises up, gives up or dies.

    My suggestion to those who want more knowledge is go to their public library and check out this book first. It’s free. Then do what so many others do, use the Internet as a tool and do your own research. Look for things like “Natural Remedies”, “Alternative Medicines”, “Homeopathic Medicines”, “Health Foods”, “Natural Health”, “Organic Nutrition”, “Healthy Nutrition”, and so on and so on. Please remember to take everything your read or hear with a grain of salt. With all the information you gather make your own conclusions and you will be the better for it.
