Publisher's Summary

Award-winning neurologist and scholar Dr. David Perlmutter makes a compelling case for a grain-free lifestyle in his nonfiction book, Grain Brain. He claims that carbohydrates hinder brain development, impairing cognitive function and contributing to the development of neurological diseases, such as Alzheimer's and dementia. Most diseases of the brain, he argues, are preventable when one eats properly and adopts other healthy habits. He then gives readers the insight and advice they need to improve their lives and keep their brains functioning at peak efficiency for decades to come.

This summary explores the major ideas found in Grain Brain, as well as the key take-aways from each chapter. Use it to help you make sense of the key thoughts Perlmutter presents and understand why the foods you eat play such an important role in your brain's health. The book also presents readers with lists of must-have dietary staples, foods to consume in moderation, and foods to avoid, along with recipes that are both nutritious and tasty.

Still, listeners may want to approach Grain Brain with caution: Although he uses scientific studies to back up his claims, Perlmutter does not acknowledge or respond to work that directly contradicts his own sources, which hampers his credibility. He also makes some illogical claims with no research to back them up. Allow our summary of Grain Brain to give you a complete picture of everything you should take away from this nonfiction piece.

    "More review and opinion than summary"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Some useful information but not enough to be good summary. More high points with a lot of critique. The book is about Dr Perlmutter's research not his popularity, there is a lot of great information in the book not mentioned.


    What was most disappointing about Save Time Summaries’s story?

    The summary started by listing topics not covered by the book. Great way to kill the readers excitement - and move from summary to random facts.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Narration was good.


    Do you think Grain Brain: The Surprising Truth about Wheat, Carbs, and Sugar (Your Brain's Silent Killers) by David Perlmutter -- Summary, Review & Analysis needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No, I think the book is very good and has a lot of information. I bought the book after finding the summary was more of a critique than information I could use.


    Any additional comments?

    I would really like to see the focus being on a good quality summary that supports the book content without personal analysis - it's not a Novel this is non-fiction.

    "Only moderately matches book."

    Provides a critique as well as points that are not covered in the text / audio. In some sense seems to challenge the material presented. Not an ideal summary from my perspective. Would not buy other summaries done in this way.

    "Decent summary"

    If you don't have the time this is a good lesson to get the overall just of the diet plan. But listening to grain brain and it's entirety is much more informative and useful

    "Barely worth the $4.00"

    It was odd to hear the criticism of the contents before and after the summary. The summary was also a bit too rushed and the reader was a bit dull to listen to.

    Quick and to the point. Have a note pad handy. Lots of good information, if you want a throughout outline get the original book.
