Great book, well researched - opinion of fellow MD

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.
