Just in time for those with a New Year’s resolution to try to eat better or avoid toxic chemicals in makeup and cleaning products, Clean(ish) is here to help. I really wanted to like the book. Unfortunately, I just didn’t. Here’s why.
- The author loves to talk about her journey to living clean. A lot. The book seems almost like a memoir at times.
- There is a multitude of science here. However, the author has no real nutritional or medical credentials. In addition, the science presented reminds me of the Dr. Oz television show. The science is only shown to support the author’s claims. No studies are cited with opposing views.
- Worst of all, it’s overlong and boring. It boils down to eating organic fruit/veg and whole grains plus using green makeup/cleaning products. You don’t need to read a 432-page book about it.
Clean(ish) was a miss for me so it is not recommended. 2 stars.
Thanks to St. Martin’s Press and NetGalley for a copy in exchange for my honest review.
