The scientific evidence behind why maintaining a lifestyle more like that of our ancestors will restore our health and well-being.

In GO WILD, Harvard Medical School Professor John Ratey, MD, and journalist Richard Manning reveal that although civilization has rapidly evolved, our bodies have not kept pace. This mismatch affects every area of our lives, from our general physical health to our emotional wellbeing. Investigating the power of living according to our genes in the areas of diet, exercise, sleep, nature, mindfulness and more, GO WILD examines how tapping into our core DNA combats modern disease and psychological afflictions, from Autism and Depression to Diabetes and Heart Disease. By focusing on the ways of the past, it is possible to secure a healthier and happier future, and GO WILD will show you how.

This book should be required reading for everyone on the planet who thinks the way we live is okay. That being said, I really liked this book on it's own merits and not just because I already believe in it's message. It wasn't preachy or gimmicky... it's not trying to sell a workout or accompanying recipe book. It uses actual science to show what we are doing to ourselves on a daily basis and then suggests we may do something to help ourselves. Definitely thought provoking and a kick in my backside to keep trying to do better.
