Excellent information that is applicable for any level of physiological understanding; the author does not dummy down information, but makes it accessible.
Good narration and interesting material
Fascinatingly informative about where garbage in our food and personal products comes from. Compelling book about eating a more plant-centric diet.
This book was jam-packed with nutritional information that I loved. Dr. Barnard puts the medical information in layman's turns so it is easy to understand and comprehend. Sometimes nutritionists and doctors use their medical terms and expect you to understand what they're saying. There was so much information that I wanted to remember or highlight and so I bought the book! He gives such compelling information from our diets, to vitamins, minerals, exercise, and sleep. Jeremy Arthur also did a great job in narrating the book.
emphasizes plant based eating which I already do but really reinforced what I already believe. Don't eat animals or their products! doesn't do you any good.
The book spoke mainly on alzheimer's disease, which does concern the mind but not exactly what I was expecting. Chapter 10 was the best part of the book. I did learn a couple of things. Overall if I could get my money back and select a different book I would. The narrator read fine.
Listening to this one again. Everyone can gain information from this book. The only setback was all the medical talk in the first few chapters, got kind of lost and found myself not paying attention.
As an RN with a strong nutritional background, I was greatly disappointed with this book. The authors motive to convince me to refrain from ALL meat/dairy is poorly substantiated as he never even addressed the benefits of grass fed red meat. And the fact he wants you to limit your intake of vital minerals is laughable. Save your money as you will learn NOTHING regarding optimizing brain health (assuming you read the medical/nutritional news) and this book might even work against your goals in optimizing your brain health..
