The Hacking of the American Mind
Dr. Robert Lustig
Ever wonder why we crave the foods that are so bad for us? Why are food and mood so connected? There’s a scientific reason behind all of that, and in this book, Dr. Lustig explains it all so beautifully! Plus, he explains how the food industry manipulated this science to hack our minds. But good news! He also tells us his “4Cs” for fixing the mess we’re in!
Why We Sleep
The book teaches us that sacrificing sleep for work or any other activity should never be considered a badge of honor (as students, academics, and those of us with “type A personalities” often presume, working late hours to “work harder and longer”). In fact, if we follow Dr. Walker’s research into the vital need for restful and sufficient sleep, we’ll come to understand precisely why he refers to sleep as the foundation (not just a pillar) of good health!
