The Antidote is a series of journeys among people who share a single, surprising way of thinking about life. What they have in common is a hunch about human psychology: that it’s our constant effort to eliminate the negative that causes us to feel so anxious, insecure, and unhappy. And that there is an alternative "negative path" to happiness and success that involves embracing the things we spend our lives trying to avoid.

I have been a member since 2006, and have around 1800 audiobooks. I have written a mere handful of reviews, so this is a big deal when I say life changing. This book for me, altered the way I perceive life’s challenges. I have had a day and a half, and I get that isn’t much time to gauge change, however sometimes there is an unmistakable shift. I have shifted and maybe it is merely this book caught me at a good moment? Not sure, nor do I care the reason behind it, and that is also a big deal. I’m an information seeking junky, and in this case no information is needed. I just feel better. So can’t tell you if this will be the book for you, or if it will shift anything in you, but I can say it has valuable insights and questions that could?

I like the beginning. Then she launched in on how to add ACV to green beans and dishes.

Health-conscious Americans seek out vitamins any way they can, whether in a morning glass of orange juice, a piece of vitamin-enriched bread, or a daily multivitamin. We believe that vitamins are always beneficial and that the more we can get, the better - yet despite this familiarity, few of us could explain what vitamins actually are. Instead we outsource our questions to experts and interpret vitamin as shorthand for health.

This is a paid anti-nutrient book that was sponsored by big pharma. Flawed scientific studies and opinion based.
