This book confirmed my suspicion that the world of possibilities is, after all we have discovered, still wide open. Think you know yourself? Guess again. There is wonderfully so much to learn about how we move through life, what we are made of, how we can fine-tune our health, and maybe even who we are. The concepts in this book need to guide everything from medicine to grocery shopping to maybe even how we say "hello" to one another.
The writing is packed with science, story, humor, history--it's deep, and it's fun.
The performance was also the best I've heard. The reader is engaged, reads at a conversational tempo, and never stumbles even over what are some very challenging passages.
Honestly, the only thing that could make my experience with this book better would be if it was the first of a series. 🤓

A wonderful book as an introduction into nutrition, health, diet, evolutionary biology, and the gut biome. I loved how the author constantly reflected history and modern life. His metaphors make understanding the content do-able for the ignorant. Beautiful listen.

I have read up a bit on the gut recently and this book is the latest one to teach me more about it and how my body works in general: in brief, an excellently accessible read to the point that I look forward to a follow - up in a few years time when the 'new biology' has had the opportunity to become more mainstream and people take on the logic of it all.
They should be teaching this in school from age eleven to give each generation the opportunity to make informed life decisions.

This is the third book I have listened to on the gut microbiome, it is such exciting and life changing information, an absolute must read. I loved 'gut' and 'the diet myth' and this is definitely as good.
Some chapters are quite intense, but make an effort to listen through to the end, you won't regret it.

Broadened my understanding if myself and how important it is to nurture your microbial partners
My intellectual base is not up to par with this book -alot of big words. Nevertheless, lots of interesting information that will revolutionise the way medicine is intodays society, and has given me something to apply in everyday life. Great audio read and well worth it!
