I was really looking forward to reading Kavi's book - and I wasn't disappointed.
In the first part of the book, he describes, in painful detail, how, like many of us, for a myriad of reasons, he paid no attention in his teens and twenties to his health and his physical and emotional well-being, and in fact, at times seemed to be hurtling towards the edge of the abyss.
The second part of the book describes his long, tortuous journey home, which has taken him to various parts of the world and involved many diversions as he explored, and continues to explore, different approaches to the health of body and mind.
Running through all of his investigations is the theme, and eventually the inescapable conclusion, of the intimate connection between mind and body: we have to treat each of them with care and respect. If one of them is out of balance, then the other will be too. One of the things I really appreciate about Kavi's approach is his non-dogmatic approach: he is open to exploring whatever he finds on his path. For instance, he was an avid raw food advocate; now he sees raw food as a component of a healthy, balanced diet.
As he says explicitly, this is not a 'how to' manual; it's a 'why to', inviting readers to examine why it might be a good idea to reassess what they are taking in to their mind/body. It's not a faddy 'food fascist' tract; it's a compassionate call-to-action.
This book came at exactly the right time for me: a wake-up call - urgent but gentle! Buy it: you won't regret it.
