The scientific evidence behind why maintaining a lifestyle more like that of our ancestors will restore our health and well-being.

In GO WILD, Harvard Medical School Professor John Ratey, MD, and journalist Richard Manning reveal that although civilization has rapidly evolved, our bodies have not kept pace. This mismatch affects every area of our lives, from our general physical health to our emotional wellbeing. Investigating the power of living according to our genes in the areas of diet, exercise, sleep, nature, mindfulness and more, GO WILD examines how tapping into our core DNA combats modern disease and psychological afflictions, from Autism and Depression to Diabetes and Heart Disease. By focusing on the ways of the past, it is possible to secure a healthier and happier future, and GO WILD will show you how.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bait and switch... This book is basically the promotion of the Paleo diet. It also includes about 10 pages of useful information spread over endless anecdotes and homespun tripe. The kobo preview promised so much, and the whole book delivered mostly an expensive brochure. Basically, get decent sleep, stay connected to others, learn meditation, don't eat grains, enjoy nature, embraced challenges...you get the picture.
