If you are unaware of Max's story, his mother was diagnosed with a mysterious form of dementia.
Max put his successful media career on hold to learn everything he could about brain health and performance.

That said, DR Mark Hyman, an doctor and author did write in review of the book
“The human brain doesn’t come with an owner’s manual, but Genius Foods comes close—except that it’s also fun to read, and written in a way that anyone can understand.
