Explore the science behind your daily living habits and make your day healthier, happier, and more productive. Many of the activities we take for granted are in fact contrary to a healthy lifestyle. In this groundbreaking book, long-held beliefs are exploded by new science: drinking eight glasses a day is too much; breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day; smartphones are not making us all depressed. Bringing to bear the latest research in psychology, nutrition, biology, and physics, best-selling author Dr Stuart Farrimond unearths the facts behind the fads, and provides take-away advice on every area of our lives - and all delivered in Dr Stu's trademark style; approachable, authoritative, and above all, entertaining.


A great book, really, one you can dip in and out of and find answers you’ve been searching for or just look at questions that you’ve never even thought of asking. Some of them were a bit obvious - the diet and health ones are more of the same: eat less, move more, etc, etc. But some of the stuff on sleep was really interesting, and it surprised me how many areas we really don’t know very much about.
