Good book to refer back to.

This was a very easy-to-read look into how your brain chemistry (yes, I said those words together) plays a huge role in depression and how you can make simple changes in your diet and exercise to adjust your baseline and start feeling better.
had a lot of interesting thoughts and statistics based on human chemistry.
Really good info.
