Did you like? did you read?
I started with the gold covered book back in 2000, I think it was a 1986 book or something. It is the one where he spends most of the book sounding a bit paranoid complaining about how many so called "scientists" didn't like his theories.
In spite of all that I felt pretty impressed by it. I don't recall him stating any specific "induction" foods or any thing to avoid during induction (other than fruit). It seemed to me like in that book his focus was on 20 grams or less during the first two weeks and not a lot of other "rules" for induction.
Then I loaned that book to a friend and never got it back so I later bought one with a white cover. It was a revised version and was the first time I saw him mention "net carbs". Plus it seemed like there were a lot of new and more complicated rules.
I saw one later that had a red cover and I'm not sure if that was the same book or a different one from the white covered copy, I figured it was the same, then a little later he came out with one that seemed specifically for maintenance or something which I never bought.
Which book did YOU read or like the best? I still like the gold one and would like to find another copy of it. It seemed to make so much sense and seemed so simple.
