Thoughts on Kevin Trudeau and his Natural Cures book?
I read parts of it this week and am perusing his website, and while he has lots of good info (all of which can be found elsewhere online quite frankly), I'm not terribly impressed. He's a little over the top and very unprofessional IMO. Anyone else seen his stuff?

1. Be careful
If he is who I think he is, he has had some fraud convictions.

2. seriously?
if you have any more info, please share. My dad is totally into this dude and I think he's a bit of a quack. Not that there aren't some truths in his book- I'm all about the all natural health movement and alternative treatment options- but I think this guy is a bit insane.

5. Yep, that's the same guy
most of what's valuable in his books is indeed easily found elsewhere. Other items are just bunk ("vitamins are poison")! He has been taken to court on fraud charges numerous times for a wide variety of ventures. He maintains that it's big pharma trying to hush him, but he really is a confirmed scam artist.

6. wiki
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kevin_Trudeau

Yeah, the book is a cover, check out wiki. The infomertials are just advertising - i wouldn't put much faith in what he says. Do your own research.

8. He has an injunction against him
That prohibits sale of medical devices or "cures". He gets around it by selling books about medical miracle cures. He is a con man from way back. Try google for more info.

9. in one of his infomercials, he praised Rush L.
Kind of in passing. 'nuff said. Guy is a nut, and i wish he were locked up.
