Dr. Mark Pettus is a rare doctor--one who makes changing your lifestyle to improve your health something anyone can achieve. He's compassionate, nonjudgmental, and inspirational. He looks at the whole picture -- what you eat and drink, how you exercise, how you interact with other people, and how you handle stress -- and makes suggestions for "bite-size" changes that can help you wean yourself off unhealthy behavior and into a whole new way of being. He helps you understand how your brain works, so you can literally "change your mind" and focus it on healthy changes in your life.

In a very accessible and pragmatic way, Dr Pettus brings the burgeoning science of mind-brain-body into an effective roadmap for effectively changing behavior. He provides a lot of research data in support of many strategies for reducing allostatic load (a fascinating concept) and improving health.

Format: Paperback
I loved this book as it was well researched and provided a different perspective on what drives our patterns of thinking, feeling, and behaving.
It also connects many dimensions of living e.g. social connection, forgiveness, and conflict management with health outcomes. There is even a chapter on raising teenagers!

Format: Paperback
I thought this book was useless and not helpful, in the least. While it contained some tips on how to change your health for the better, it's really nothing more than a compilation of recycled info on how to do so (eat more veggies, take in good fats, exercise, etc.). I learned nothing new.
Also, there was little emphasis on how one would exactly go about changing their mind. While the author included research from scientific studies involving "mind over matter" and the power of the human mind, he failed to tie them into his main thesis. Because of that, at times, the book seemed convoluted and unfocused.
Bottom line: Don't waste your money on this book -- it's chock full of very basic info that you can find anywhere on the 'net. The only reason I gave it two stars is because he DID include the importance of omega-3 foods and the utilization of relaxation techniques and exercises. And, for the extreme novice, his tips COULD serve as a jumping board.
