Good but nothing really new
January 25, 2020
It’s pretty darn impossible to say anything bad about Dr Perlmutter. He’s got so much good advice to offer and clearly is on top of the preventive medicine game.
What left me a bit underwhelmed in this book was I that found it to be pretty much a rehash of all that’s been published and YouTubed and written about the long term necessity of eating whole foods, tossing out the junk and additives, systemic inflammation, (how many times have you been told tumeric is good for you by now, do you need to hear that again?) and living in a psychology healthy way: connected to nature, other people, and your “best self”.
Doc P. here runs the message through the brain health wash, which is fine, but there’s nothing very novel coming across if you’ve delved into this whole shebang before through *his* prior books and the other luminaries in this field.
If you’ve not read or followed any of Doc P.’s prior work or others like him than sure, this book will definitely be very valuable. Leave it at that.
