There are stacks upon stacks of self-help books that will promise you love, happiness, and a fabulous life. But how can you pinpoint the exact behaviors that cause you to be miserable in the first place? Sometimes when we're depressed, or just sad or unhappy, our instincts tell us to do the opposite of what we should - such as focusing on the negative, dwelling on what we can't change, isolating ourselves from friends and loved ones, eating junk food, or overindulging in alcohol. Sound familiar?

We are all increasingly bewildered by the simple question of what to eat. Despite advice from experts, governments and dieticians about the dangers of too much fat, sugar, protein and lack of exercise, our nutrition - and the global obesity crisis - is getting worse. Why can one person eat a certain meal and gain weight and another eat exactly the same food and lose pounds? Genes provide part of the answer, but we have been overlooking one vital aspect of diet that lies within us.

Not a fad diet book but will probably change my attitude towards food for the better. Great narration, not too plodding.

Although there are slightly confusing sections (especially when lots of people have the same name) this book gives a great overall picture. It jumps around different campaigns across the world but sticks around long enough for you to get a good feel for what the conflicts are really about. The author seems to give a fair analysis and the voice acting is very good. Would recommend if you're interested in this kind of thing.
