Comments: Hufeland's Makrobiotik was one of the most popular books of its time on personal hygiene. It was translated into all European languages and saw many editions of which this one followed 5 years after the first publication in 1797 (GM 1602). A friend and physician of Goethe, Schiller, and Herder, Hufeland was also one of the great pioneers of medical journalism. In this work he sets forth his theories on the prolongation of life and on old age. It was Hufeland's belief that only farmers, hunters, gardeners, soldiers and sailors lived to very advanced age as a result of their regular way of life. But abstract thinking, scientific work, and confinement in closed rooms he considered detrimental to longevity. Hirsch, 3, 329.

I want to thank you for your excellent service. I telephoned to inquire about the availability of a book this past Wednesday morning. Michele informed me it was available and took my order at about 11 AM EST. The next day when I got home from work, I was astounded to find that the book had been delivered in the early afternoon -- less than 30 hours after the order. Now, I know that UPS deserves some credit, but such fast delivery would not have occurred if Michele (and perhaps others) had not worked extremely efficiently. The book was well packed and fully meets my expectations, and Michele even got my name right! You have demonstrated a level of service I hope all merchants would meet. Thanks again. - Guy Hasegawa
