As a surgical resident with personal interest in yoga, healthy eating, fitness, and a curiosity about integrative medicine, I bought this book expecting to hear a bunch of quacky $&@# with an occasional gold nugget advice that was doable and actually backed by evidence-based medicine. What I found was a plethora of solid, well-founded advice in a format that was so easy to understand I'm tempted to buy the book for my 70+ year old parents in hopes that they may find a better balance in the way they live their lives and their approach to health. I may not be able to eat tempeh, piles of spinach and get 7+ hours of sleep as a resident, but on the whole, the book certainly makes me more mindful of my habits and gives me some hope for creating a long term plan for health.
If you've never seen this guy on PBS then it may well be wonderful for you.
Include cutting edge information including breakthroughs in neurobiology and less about vitamin supplementation!
Oh He is great!
I would cut all of the old nutrition info and add more and in-depth accounts of the success of his clients. Those narratives seemed a very powerful way to deliver Dr. W's message.
I might be different than most listeners I live in Berkeley, and I'm an academic.
Somewhere in the top 10
Other creditable nutrition books (I am a health scientist)
Very easy to listen to
Not all nutrition books are based in science - Andrew has a great deal of credit
Dr. Weil is a joy to listen to. I enjoy his conservational tone. He doesn't confuse his listeners with difficult to understand science, rather explains it in layman's term. I could listen to Dr. Weil all day long.
Encouraging, Informative, Inspiring
Made me want to better take care of my mind and body.
Lovely delivery that gave confidence in what he was saying.
Must listen. Have a lot of information regarding different approaches for taking care of oneself.
