    Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

    This is an important work. Please ignore those who say "skeptical" without reading it. For example one reviewer claims he is confused as to why Dairy is not recommended. Well, it is. He also cites a book about cholesterol being healthy, which is a fact the book concurs with. I would not be surprised if that review was someone just working for the competing "diet book."
    As someone who read the book and followed the food recommendations I can attest they are life altering. I am below my high school weight and my mind is sharper than it has been in years.
    The book explains, with medical research to back it, why common foods are harmful not only for your body generally but to your brain specifically. The sad truth is there are monied interests wanting us to keep eating grains, carbs and "low fat" processed goods and that is the only reason these harmful foods are even around.
    Can't live without "carbs," Wrong. I can barely live with the fact I have been eating carbs all this time.
    If you are scanning reviews, please read this book and listen to the science. You will be convinced and if you follow the food ideas you will be transformed.
    The more people that do the sooner the carb industry can become extinct.

    New York Times best-selling author James Lee Burke's Dave Robicheaux novels began with this first hard-hitting entry in the series. In The Neon Rain, Detective Robicheaux fishes a prostitute's corpse from a New Orleans bayou and finds that no one, not even the law, cares about a dead hooker.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes. Anyone interested in noir or crime.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tough without spoilers. Bar scene with circus people sticks with you though...


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    If you are thinking of getting into this series, do it. The characters and writing are excellent and represent some of the best in the noir genre. New Orleans makes a great backdrop and the author makes the most of it while avoiding stereotypes.
