If you plan to follow the advise in this book, you will want a written copy. If you just want the information, this is an excellent source.

I love health books like this, and at first, it seemed pretty great. Wonderfully narrated, written with easy-to-understand explanations, and (mostly) scientifically sound. Even though I know most of the content discussed in this book, I enjoy listening to anything that helps motivate me to take better care of my body and my brain. But right from the get-go there were inconsistencies that left me scratching my head. In one sentence, the author tells us that we shouldn't eat albacore tuna because of the high mercury content, and that a good/easy rule of thumb is to stay away from farmed fish and go primarily with wild-caught. But then when he begins listing out the top fish that we should always be incorporating into our diets on a regular basis, that list contains albacore tuna (at the top of the list) and several farmed fish. That left me scratching my head and feeling uncertain about the message of this book. Granted, it's a small piece of it, but when that red flag goes up and flashing lights cause me to pause in confusion, I have a hard time getting back into it. The book is excellent for someone who is unfamiliar with the latest studies about good fats, low glycemic foods and eating healthy for gut and brain health. But if you've already got a fair amount of knowledge under your belt and are looking for some in-depth, solid information based on scientific studies and unquestionable research, this probably isn't the book for you.

This book spends several hours building up to a 3 week, day by day eating plan, which promises to help you clear your brain fog. When it eventually gets there, the chapter is 70+ minutes of repetition, which you're unlikely to remember in one go. To reference the plan you'll either need to save many bookmarks in the chapter, or write/type out the information. Either way it will take you some time. The book comes with a pdf download, in which the plan could have been included. Whatever the reason for not doing this, it was a big oversight.
The information in this book is interesting, although the author cites a lot of studies, again none of which can be referenced in audio format without killing the flow of the book.
This is possibly the only one of my 200 audio books that doesn't work in this format. Save your money and buy the paper or e - version.
