review 1: Well, clearly I'm going to have to read this one again, because there's so much there, and even though I tried to take it all in in one shot... there's a lot of information in there.What I liked most about this book was the way he explained how the brain works. He shows which part of the brain helps facilitate which function and how necessary it is that they all work together.Until I read this book, I didn't really understand that I simply could not multitask. Okay, I suspected that this was the case, but after the way he explained how important attention was to memory.It was in reading this book that I discovered some rather catastrophic mistakes I had made with my life. As someone who suffers from depression, I've done the opposite of what is necessary to take care of it... more. I've hid away, and tried to sequester myself from the world. The very 'people' I needed in my life I tried to avoid.As someone who has been burned by the self-help movement, I find this book goes beyond that. Rather than pseudo science, it's science, made practical.I love this book, and I look forward to rereading it.
review 2: This is the book that I've been waiting for. The one which doesn't just say "You need to exercise and eat healthy food", but explains in detail why and how particular lifestyles affect your brain.Finally a book which doesn't treat the reader as a 3-year-old child and doesn't just give you instructions as to how you should proceed, but also explains the science behind it all and is not afraid of using "difficult" words and ideas.Excellent reading for anyone who is interested in how the brain functions and how to improve your life based on the newest discoveries in neuroscience. less

Chock full of good information from scientific sources. A little short on the "how-to.", though.
Aewesome ,lots of good Hints and tips to improve your daily life
One part CBT-lite, one part diet book, it did not do it for me.
Not a science focused, but more self-help focused.
