Great book, although I'm not sure the case against saturated fat and animal foods is warranted. Packed with great info nonetheless.
Why We Sleep by Matthew Walker
"31st book for 2018.

Aldous Huxley
“Each person is at each moment capable of remembering all that has ever happened to him and of perceiving everything that is happening everywhere in the universe. The function of the brain and nervous system is to protect us from being overwhelmed and confused by this mass of largely useless and irrelevant knowledge, by shutting out most of what we should otherwise perceive or remember at any moment, and leaving only that very small and special selection which is likely to be practically useful.”
Aldous Huxley, The Doors of Perception

Benjamin Franklin

Benjamin Franklin
