Not that they weren't perfectly sound—they appeared to be—but clearly this book's audience is the layperson who won't be convinced unless reminded that this information came from a namebrand research university by a real Ph.D. I started counting the i [...]

    2. I think the concept of this book is what drew me to it; however, the information is not easily accessible and it was hard to finish the chapters. I ended up mostly skimming this book looking for key information. If you are looking for a helpful book on this topic, I would recommend "The Antianxiety Food Solution: How the Foods You Eat Can Help You Calm Your Anxious Mind, Improve Your Mood, and End Cravings" by Trudy Scott.

    3. it was tough to want to read this booke final chapter, Managing Your Mood, was the most useful for tips and tricks.Spark: The Revolutionary New Science of Exercise and the Brain may be a better choice for coverage on the topic.

    4. I'm reading this mainly for a research project. Well, originally I was just reading bits and pieces of it. But now I'm reading it for the educational advantage it'll offer me!

    5. Bo-ring. I would have liked this pop science-y account as a 2-pager in Time Magazine, but 200 pages of the same basic idea reiterated again and again was a real snoozefest.
