Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author of Grain Brain, and his physician son, explore how modern culture threatens to rewire our brains and damage our health, offering a practical plan for healing.   

Contemporary life provides us with infinite opportunities, along with endless temptations. We can eat whatever we want, whenever we want. We can immerse ourselves in the vast, enticing world of digital media. We can buy goods and services with the touch of a button or the swipe of a finger. But living in this 24/7 hyper-reality poses serious risks to our physical and mental states, our connections to others and even to the world at large.

Brain Wash builds from a simple premise: Our brains are being gravely manipulated, resulting in behaviours that leave us more lonely, anxious, depressed, distrustful, illness-prone and overweight than ever before. Based on the latest science, the audiobook identifies the mental hijacking that undermines each and every one of us, and it presents the tools necessary to think more clearly, make better decisions, strengthen bonds with others and develop healthier habits. Featuring a 10-day boot camp program, including a meal plan and 40 delicious recipes, Brain Wash is the key to cultivating a more purposeful and fulfilling life.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your Library section along with the audio on our desktop site.

Wow! What an eye opener

Working with teenagers this book confirmed alot of suspicions I had about what was going on with their hard wiring, as they're certainly a different breed nowadays than when I was at school! Also gave me some great insight to myself and my own challenges as a tired weight gaining mum and as a parent of a young daughter! Loved everything about it and will defo work with the 10 day plan. Thank you 👍
