Meet Ove. He's a curmudgeon - the kind of man who points at people he dislikes as if they were burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has staunch principles, strict routines, and a short fuse. People call him "the bitter neighbor from hell". But behind the cranky exterior there is a story and a sadness.

I liked the approach of this book - take charge of your health through self care by addressing root causes - including nutrition, stress, and self kindness. I have already implemented many simple but impactful steps to improve my mental and physical well being and I have a brighter outlook - this after being diagnosed with hypothyroidism in my teens and battling brain fog, irritability, and fatigue for many years.

I will say that the narrator is clear and concise but slightly robotic. I got used to it through.

For those who said they couldn't get to the enhancement: it's available on the desktop version of audible.com. Log in, go to your library and check under the book title for the pdf. The enhancement is a GREAT recap of many topics she covered in the book and really helps with plan execution.
