    Total quackary. The introduction, basics and conclusion are pure garbage. Astrology? Seriously? But that said, I do like the idea of paying attention to the seasons and how our body and mind need different things at different times of the year. So I will continue to keep it around and read each season as it comes.

    One of the very best books I've ever read about how to keep balance in the body during the different seasons of the year.... Very important to people living in places like minnesota who experience such extreme cycles.

    I love this book! I got to hear Dr. Haas lecture at the 15th annual UCSF Integrative Medicine conference and it was a great experience. Marin County has a gem and his name is Dr. Haas.

    A little outdated but otherwise a delightful introduction to the philosophy of Chinese medicine and eating with the seasons.

    Recommended by a nutritionist I follow. It's a little woo woo, but generally thoughtful and intuitive. I read autumn and will revisit in other seasons. Recommended by a nutritionist I follow.

    A natural health professional told me that this book was foundational for bringing Eastern medicine into the West. So it's somewhat of an overview of that. What I liked the most was having some suggestions of different things to eat at different times of year. As someone who struggles with what the heck to make for dinner, or even to remember to make or buy dinner, it's nice to have some guidelines. It eliminates some elements of decision-making in meal planning -- a plus!

It eliminates some elements of decision-making in meal planning -- a plus! Everything he suggests is super healthy, so really, it's not a bad idea to eat it at any point during the year. I just need an excuse to make miso all winter, for example.

    One of my first books on holistic health, I turn to it frequently. By far his best book ever, Hass covers the body systems in relation to the seasons, and how to support health and maintain balance through the use of food, herbs, fitness, astrology and more. There is also an appendix with health charts and assessment tools for the practitioner. I love this book and recommend it highly!

    I've actually had this book around for years as kind of a reference book. I like a lot of the ideas, but you do have to take some of it with a grain of salt. ;) I've actually had this book around for years as kind of a reference book.

    Very informative but too wordy at times for a beginner and doesn't really mention how seasons and foods are different in different parts of the world.
