Some of the fairly unusual features of this book include:
-- his focus on brain and neurological health, areas in which he has serious professional expertise.
-- some unusual positions on certain dietary and supplement areas. If you are used to reading from the "red pill" side of health and fitness, many other books take positions almost becomes predictable after a while. Osborn, in a sense, rebels against both the mainstream wisdom as well as certain things that have become "received wisdom" on the alternative. Some examples are his approach to saturated fat and carbs as well as, most interestingly to me, his view of statins.
Their is a fair amount of repetition and it could have been a shorter book without loss of information, and his style can be overly self-confident which grates sometimes. But overall, an excellent interesting read, particularly if you are looking for something a bit more technical and a bit less predictable than many of the recent books that have attended the paleo / primal / HIIT revolution.
