Should you cook with coconut oil or vegetable oil? Eat butter, cream, or olive oil? Supplement with fish oil or flax oil? Sometimes it seems as if everyone has a different opinion on these crucial questions - but this audiobook holds real answers. Best-selling author and teacher Dr. Joseph Mercola teams up with cardiovascular expert Dr. James DiNicolantonio to cut through the confusion about how dietary fats affect our bodies and set the record straight on how to eat for optimal well-being.

its a good book, some interesting information but very little new. it takes several hours to arrive at the same conclusion it did in the first chapter. omega 6 processed seed oil... bad. omega 3 good. eat real food, supplement properly with omega 3.
doesn't touch on ketogenic diet despite saying ketogenic fuel in the title, the expectation is you will buy the previous books (both fat for fuel and also salt fix are plugged then the discussion on both topics ends abruptly) so much so that I will not purchase them now for the lack of concise information in this one as a stand alone book and the shameless tactics of producing an incomplete book.
it covers only fat intake,nothing else. no mention of carbohydrates, no mention of protein or of micronutrients. superfuel as the title suggests would cover the fuel, your body needs, not one part of it. how do carbs play a role in the conditions mentioned, what about protein, fructose and sugars, gluten and genetically modified grains. this book is a book, or ideally a good segment from a complete book.

Why can some birds sleep with only half of their brain? What really happens during REM sleep? Why do our sleep patterns change across a lifetime? Sleep is one of the most important but least understood aspects of our life, health and longevity. Until very recently, science had no answer to the question of why we sleep or what good it serves or why we suffer such devastating health consequences when it is absent. In this book, neuroscientist and sleep expert Matthew Walker charts 20 years of cutting-edge research.

A real eye opener of a book. A must read in my opinion for anyone that is interested in their health or their mind.
The readers voice sounded a bit slow and monotone to start, but don't let it put you off, it is very well read and quite humorous. I would not hesitate to recommend this book, or place it in my top ten factual books.
