The How Not to Die Cookbook is Available for Preorder!

Let’s Get Cooking

The How Not to Die Cookbook is now ready for pre-order!

It is so beautifully designed it looks like it belongs more on your coffee table than on your kitchen counter, complete with more than 120 recipes for delicious meals, snacks, and beverages made with 100% green-light ingredients to help anyone eat their way to better health.

It ships the first week of December, but the more pre-orders that are locked in before then, the greater the chances it will rocket on to the New York Times Bestseller list like last time. So to encourage pre-orders, I’m offering free signed, personalized bookplates you can stick in the cookbooks for everyone on your holiday gift list. To receive your bookplates, go here:

Note: this is limited to the first 2,000 pre-orders, and we have about 500 left at the time of this blog publishing. (Yeah, I know I eat an anti-inflammatory diet, but my writing hand can only handle so many! :)

  1. Is there any chance that we will be able to “See Inside” the book on the Amazon order page soon? It’s so hard for me to buy this as a gift without seeing how difficult, etc., the recipes are… but I WILL want Dr. Greger’s autograph plate for my gift recipient if it looks good!! Help!

    1. Hi Kyle, Thank you for considering the cookbook as a gift!! I believe that the preview function is something that’s just up to the publisher. I am guessing it will be there eventually, but we don’t have a say in that… However, we are going to start teasing recipes on the site (some will be linked in the Doc Notes throughout the month, starting with today’s, Nov 3!) and on social media. Keep your eyes out and if we can be of any further help, let us know!

    1. Hi Barbara,

      We’re so excited for the book to be shipped! However, we do not directly sell it, so do you remember which store you preordered it from (Amazon, Barnes and Noble, etc)? You would need to check with them :)

    1. Hi Leonard,

      I don’t think that is determined yet, but keep your eyes out for updates once the book is released.

  2. I received this book a few days ago and it’s great except for the measurements. I live in the UK so am used to measuring in grams. Some of the cup to gram conversions seem totally wrong. Spinach for example is 225g per cup according to the book – that’s an entire packet of spinach to 1 cup. A salad for 4 people calls for 8 cups, or 1.8kg of spinach. That is ridiculous. I’m very surprised this error made it’s way to print and is quite disappointing for an otherwise excellent cookbook.
