Waste of money!!!
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..
