Excellent information that is applicable for any level of physiological understanding; the author does not dummy down information, but makes it accessible.

Waste of money!!!

Would you try another book from Neal Barnard and/or Jeremy Arthur?


What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Very disappointed!

Any additional comments?

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..
