I wanted a robustly evidence based book with concrete advice for productive mornings based on our best current understanding of the brain and body written by on our best current understanding of the brain and body written by educated experts for an intelligent layperson The book did inspire me to create a good morning routine but it only half succeeded at being an intellectually serious source of evidence based advice The authors have a noticeable chip on their shoulders about western medicine They include some uestionable content including a section on the therapeutic benefits of essential oils without mentioning their toxicity to pets There is also a chapter on Ayurveda well being according to which each human body has a uniue proportion of water fire earth air and ether elements This is one of the most poorly cited chapters of the book it s really bad I want to keep an open mind about alternative medicine but the claims have to be supported by actual empirical evidence not tradition and ancient wisdomIt was a uick and easy read with some decent advice but I m guessing there are better and serious alternatives out there I wish I knew what they were The Morning Mind

Erns I have about this book I ll also preface this by saying that I don t want to tell anyone not to read it I just recommend that if ou do choose to read it ou check the endnotes to see which of these concepts and claims come from reliable sources and which ones don tI really wanted to enjoy this book learn some helpful life tips from it and maybe Pick Up Some Fun Facts About Psychology And Neurology As up some fun facts about psychology and neurology As who used to be a morning person and wishes I still was I thought it sounded relevant and useful to me specifically I was expecting it to have advice based on extensive scientific research or at least case studies Given the fact that the authors are apparently well educated experts that seemed like a reasonable expectation Unfortunately the little bit of research based advice it contained was pretty basic All explanatory passages about brain function or physical health were extremely oversimplified and very few specific studies were described You d get just as much out of virtually any other book on a similar topic even those written by people without a lot of letters after their name Instead this book contained a lot of shallow cliches a number of chapters defending pseudoscientific health trends and an awful lot of empty space Besides that it was so poorly organized that I kept feeling like I was reading a rough draft that was still missing numerous crucial passages There was also uite a bit of conflicting information The most obvious and potentially confusing was that the authors couldn t seem to make up their mind whether the parts of our brain that they term the lizard should be considered a limitation that we need to #Overcome Or A Necessary Section #or a necessary section a vital organ This is perhaps the result of the oversimplified explanation of the brain The book differentiates between our lizard brain that controls unconscious functions and the wizard brain that does the conscious thinking and decision making Initially it is acknowledged that the lizard does a lot of necessary things like maintaining our heartbeat and other bodily functions Even the fight and flight response the reflexive actions in the face of perceived danger can literally save lives when the danger is real and the situation doesn t allow time for conscious thought and decision making But after the introduction there s little discussion of brain anatomy or function The term lizard suddenly refers to completely different things usually the inclination to avoid doing difficult things We re given to und.
