Not a book for audio

The book is really interesting and gave me several things to work on. My life and brain health have already changed due to the adjustments I've made and the new habits I'm working on. The book itself is powerful.

Dr. Amen makes a powerful case with substantial evidence for making changes that range from getting more exercise to taking supplements. Furthermore, he does a wonderful job of describing the role of hormones in brain health, not just in the reproductive cycle. His advice is sensible and attainable.

That said, this is NOT a book for an audio experience. There are too many lists and too much technical information to be able to absorb it auditorally. I wish I had bought the real book so I could use it more as a reference, something that just doesn't work with the audio version. If I had read the book, I think I would have given it a much higher rating. My advice is to buy the real book and leave the audio experience for other books.

Horrible!

It was very repetitive and I was getting annoyed waiting for the author to get to the point.

Finally a doctor who understands women

In my battle with pre-menopause I have found very few doctors who get it! Women too, let alone men, didn’t understand what I was going through! Finally a book which highlights so many unknown aspects of our mind and allowed me to see light at the end of the tunnel. I know follow dr. Amen website. Very helpful!
