Dr. Sears is one of the few physicians who actually is well-versed in accurate nutrition information and always is a good resource for putting know-how into practice."—Elizabeth Somer, RD, author of Eat Your Way to Sexy and Food & Mood

There is so much information about Omega-3s out there that I was absolutely confused, especially about DHA and EPA, but kept hearing that it was important for our diet. Well, I am not confused anymore and understand the importance. This book was a good read and amazingly, Dr. Sears was able to take the most complicated scientific information and make it understandable in layman's terms, with some great analogies and illustrations. Most important, it gives a roadmap for getting the right balance of Omega-3s and Omega-6s for all types of people who want to just feel and think better.

It is a super useful educational source although much has been researched even in the short time since it was written - no mention of algal sources useful for vegetarians or the high ALA in Chia seeds (more than in flax seeds and more easily digested and absorbed. - tastes way better too). The drawings are fun. Lots of good chats, lists and references. If only fish he so highly recommends weren't contaminated just about everywhere and getting scarce.

I had no idea how important Omegas are till I read this book. I also talked to a well known pediatrician and he highly recommends them for children's concentration as well.

I have become more aware of the benefits of Omega-3 fatty acids as they pertain to overall better health, and love how this book corroborates its information in making its priceless points. Both doctors have done a wonderful job explaining why this is so.
