This one landed on my DNF pile. This wasn't anything new or helpful. And as soon as I hit the first commercial for their website were additional tools could be found, I was out. Believe it or not, that first commericial was before the 45 minute mark. I didn't waste a lot of time on this. It felt like it was going to be a really long infomercial.

Summary: Food is neither your friend nor your enemy; it is fuel. Maintaining steady blood sugar levels throughout the day is the main purpose of the fuel. Balance and moderation to meal planning and snacking is key. When you take care of the body, brain and mind, your overall performance improves.

the book has some interesting ideas. it goes into a bit of the scene on why our brain acts the way it does, with several suggested techniques on how to work more effectively and deal with stress. it could have explained the science a bit more for the understanding of a lay man, but it was always comprehensible.

Practical tips to change your habits, destress, and focus on your purposes in life, the goals being to improve your health, energy, relationships and ultimately feel happier: having more energy also means being able to give more to whom we care about. An easy read, with some commonplaces here and there, but efficient in delivering its message.

A good book. I already knew most of the concepts (meditation, single tasking etc) but this book provides a nice review in a very readable form. I have attended a talk by the author and she sure is an inspiring lady and this book serves that inspiration too. Recommended!

A rehash of mindfulness with very little substance. The one plus to this book is the author' s ability to simplify the role of the brain vs. what you desire. Otherwise, it was very very light on what to do with only a nibble of activities one can use to calm and focus.
