5.0 out of 5 stars A "celebration of life" and a terrific read - so informative and helpful!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 22 January 2021
There are so many questions in daily life that we never quite manage to find the answers to, yet ponder endlessly. What's best to eat for breakfast? Why can I not resist sweet treats? What causes road rage? How much water is the right amount to drink each day? Is an afternoon nap ever a good idea? And is sleep really that important?

These questions, and so many more (219, to be precise!) are answered by Dr Stu Farrimond in the engaging, informative yet also highly accessible and entertaining style that readers of his past books and popular science blog have come to expect. And if this is your first encounter with the author, don't be at all concerned by the "science" part of the title: as he explains in the foreword, science gives richness and meaning to our daily lives, but it doesn't have to be shrouded in jargon and mumbo-jumbo.

This fantastic book guides readers through all aspects of daily life, broken down into morning, afternoon, evening and night, to help all of us make positive choices to help our sleep, work, diet, rest, relationship and exercise patterns. Supported by colourful infographics, quotes and bitesize information throughout, it's a swift page-turner that also provides plenty of opportunities to delve much deeper.
