The only book to reveal the true science behind your every daily activity - exploding myths and providing authoritative take-away advice.

Explore the science behind your daily living habits and make your day healthier, happier, and more productive.

Many of the activities we take for granted are in fact contrary to a healthy lifestyle. In this groundbreaking audiobook, long-held beliefs are exploded by new science: drinking eight glasses a day is too much; breakfast isn't the most important meal of the day; smartphones are not making us all depressed.

Bringing to bear the latest research in psychology, nutrition, biology, and physics, Dr Stuart Farrimond unearths the facts behind the fads, and provides take-away advice on every area of our lives - and all delivered in Dr Stu's trademark style; approachable, authoritative, and above all, entertaining.

Life Your Best Life debunks pseudo-science and delivers only the facts. One day - one body - over 200 examples of science in action.

Dr Stuart Farrimond, medical doctor turned food scientist and bestselling DK author, is a science and medical writer, presenter, and educator. He regularly appears on TV, and radio, and has written for publications including the Independent, the Daily Mail, and New Scientist. He is the founder and editor of online lifestyle-science magazine Guru, which is supported by the Wellcome Trust - the world's largest medical research charity.
