A Review of Larry Cook’s Book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living’

If there was one word I could use to describe Larry Cook’s book after watching his videos on YouTube, it would be ‘dishonest’.

I recently sat down to read the false-hope peddler Larry Cook’s book ‘The Beginner’s Guide to Natural Living’ and it was not what I expected. Yes, the book is full of the same new age, unscientific, potentially dangerous medical advice that we have all heard a million times, but it is also quite (for want of a better word) hippy-ish. For example, the book says that there is a “divine intelligence behind the operation of the body, as well as all of life” and “when given the right conditions, divine intelligence heals, rejuvenates and facilitates vibrant health”. When talking about enzymes, Larry refers to them as “sparks of life” and goes on to say that without enzymes “life would cease to exist. For this reason, they are said to possess life force energy”. This hippy-like view on medical treatments is in stark contrast to the image of the book Larry is trying to portray in his YouTube videos.

The videos, which Larry produces for YouTube, are of high quality – not like those made by your average false-hope peddler you find on the site. They are well lit, have excellent sound quality and have been scripted in a way to ensure that the viewer does not switch off. They often contain medical doctors who, for one reason or another, are promoting pseudo science bullshit like, for example, Dr. Kenneth P. Stoller – who I have previously written about. Nearly all of these videos have a pre-roll ad advertising Larry’s book – implying that the medical doctor and Larry have come to the same conclusions on the subject by the same lines of inquiry. This, I can tell you after reading the book, is not the case. Continue reading
