Review by wyvernfriend
An interesting read about Coeliac or Celiac disease with a lot of useful information, much anecodotal, about living with Coeliac disease from a UK perspective. It's not bad but in places it does come across as a bit twee, with some of the exercises being embarassing. Much of the advice is solid, though and it's a good starting point.There are also some recipies, which I haven't tried yet.
