Yes, I have also saw this book online. I was reading through it a couple of days ago and it has a lot of good information too.Wow! Mine doesn't taste like that at all!!! It just really tastes like flat mineral water to me. I just mix it with cold water and I don't mind the taste at all! I actually quite enjoy drinking it now. I started on it because of a book excerpt I was sent 'Melasma - Is this the Clear Solution' by Vanessa Wild (thought maybe I had Melasma back then, now I know it's just sun damage). Anyway, it was VERY convincing. If nothing else, it's supposed to be very good for my body.
