100 STEPS TO BETTER HEALTH by Claude R. Rothe, Vantage Press, paper, $11.95.
By Beverly Creamer
Advertiser Staff Writer
In this self-published paperback, Honolulu writer Claude Rothe takes a purists approach to diet and life change, but for each life change he suggests, he offers a rationale backed up by research.
At first, the book seems to suggest a rather fanatical approach to getting well, with advice verging on not just the improbable but the impossible.
But taken as a whole, the book builds an argument that may convince the reader to follow Rothes suggestions, or some of them, at least. While they sound off-the-chart in the beginning, by the end, they begin to feel do-able. Except possibly giving up coffee.
