This is a powerful book on fasting - the whys and wherefores, and how to go about it. After reading this book, I was 100% ready to go.
The problem is there is not enough cautionary information on what to do if you encounter trouble. In my case, I developed intestinal pain, and should have aborted the fast much sooner than I did. It turns out the fast had uncovered problems with gallstones that were affecting the pancreas and intestines, and ultimately the kidneys. This ended up being no small problem.
I would recommend you supplement this book with something like Bill Bright's fasting guidelines, which you can find free online, or actually buy his full book. Between "Atomic" and Bright I think you'll have a more complete preparation going into a major fast. I also think it's a good idea to start slow if you're not used to fasting, or your body is not in great shape, or you're older. Go on a juice fast or a cleansing fast first, see how it goes, and then graduate to a water-only fast. Do it for a short time at first, and carefully gauge how your body is reacting.
I am convinced by this book that fasting is a powerful discipline sorely neglected by Christians today. But make sure you go about it safely and correctly.
