This is a book summary on Brain Maker: The Power of Gut Microbes to Heal and Protect Your Brain - for Life by David Perlmutter with contributions from Kristin Loberg.
The best-selling author of Grain Brain uncovers the powerful role of gut bacteria in determining your brain's destiny.
Debilitating brain disorders are on the rise - from children diagnosed with autism and ADHD to adults developing dementia at younger ages than ever before. But a medical revolution is underway that can solve this problem: Astonishing new research is revealing that the health of your brain is, to an extraordinary degree, dictated by the state of your microbiome - the vast population of organisms that live in your body and outnumber your own cells 10 to one. What's taking place in your intestines today is determining your risk for any number of brain-related conditions.
In Brain Maker, Dr. Perlmutter explains the potent interplay between intestinal microbes and the brain, describing how the microbiome develops from birth and evolves based on lifestyle choices, how it can become "sick", and how nurturing gut health through a few easy strategies can alter your brain's destiny for the better. With simple dietary recommendations and a highly practical program of six steps to improving gut ecology, Brain Maker opens the door to unprecedented brain health potential.

Rally helpful summary of the brain maker book. I just wanted to know some basic facts and didn't want to spend 6 or 7 hours was informative and contains enough information to make some basic dietary changes etc, though you may end up wanting to purchase the original book too!
"perfect...just the gist. Let's me know it's for me"
I loved the summary. It reviewed all the basic premises in enough detail that I can tell I want to read more. right now my quest on this topic is too time constrained to waste time reading books that go in a direction I'm not interested in.
"Very well done summary"
I am ready to read the book after listening to these points. The main ideas are outlined here so a layman can grasp the basics
