I haven't read this book, so would greatly appreciate if someone with more time on their hands could take that on. That said, I have a pretty good idea what this book is going to say: "People of North America....you need more vitamin D to be healthy and if you cannot get it from 10-30 min of sun exposure a day, take a supplement." A whopping $16.29 saved that you can now spend on some chick lit while you sit in the sun at the pool. Remember, only 10-30 min!

An Entire Book on Vitamin D
One of the most outspoken and prolific vitamin D researchers just published a new book on the topic. About 6 years ago, the author, Michael F. Holick, was fired from his post in the Dermatology Department at Boston University for encouraging people to go out in the sun. (His dermatology colleagues didn't like that he was promoting sun exposure when they had been convincing folks for years to slather up in sunscreen.) He continued on in another department and now, has a second book on vitamin D.
