Renowned neurologist David Perlmutter, MD, blows the lid off a topic that's been buried in medical literature for far too long: carbs are destroying your brain. And not just unhealthy carbs, but even healthy ones like whole grains can cause dementia, ADHD, anxiety, chronic headaches, depression, and much more.

Why didn't he just read it himself?

Would you consider the audio edition of Grain Brain to be better than the print version?

There's a lot of great information in there, I'm just struggling to get past the fact that the reader sounds like a cross between a robot and a 1960s tv commercial. So hard to listen to.

What was most disappointing about David Perlmutter and Kristin Loberg ’s story?

The narrator. The contents are awesome. I'm hoping I can make it to the end of the book, but every time I get in the car to listen I just can't... might have to buy the hard copy.

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Peter Ganim?

Dr Pearlmutter himself. It's a personal book where he talks about 'My son" "My work" etc. I've listened to him speak on podcasts, he's amazingly inspiring. Shame he couldn't take the time to record this himself.
