"The hope is that it may one day be possible to diagnose some brain diseases and mental health problems by analysing gut bacteria, and to treat them - or at least augment the effects of drug treatments - with specific bacteria. Cryan and his colleague Ted Dinan call these mood-altering germs "psychobiotics," and have co-written a book with the American science writer Scott C Anderson called The Psychobiotic Revolution." --The Guardian
"The Psychobiotic Revolution could change how you think." --sultanabun.com
"The authors of The Psychobiotic Revolution present clear research that we are indeed what we eat and that our lives would be much more enjoyable if we could balance our gut health in order to balance the rest of us." --Peppermint PhD. blog
"This book is written for a lay person. It does a very good job of explaining some difficult concepts in a way that will be easily understood by people who don't have any biology background without dumbing the subject matter down so much that people with more knowledge would cringe as they read it. That's a fine line to walk." -Spirit blog
"Many of my burning questions were answered in a simple and succinct way that makes the battle to improve our health and diet much more feasible." -Jathan & Heather blog
"Packed with the latest scientific research, [the book] informs and fascinates" -Literary Quicksand blog
"The authors have combined all the most significant information and then gleaned out the important issues that the reader needs to know in an extremely easy to read book, which becomes a real page-turner. This short book certainly relates to "You are what you Eat!" -Patricia's Wisdom blog
"This authoritative yet engaging book provides up-to-the minute research and practical advice on the gut-brain axis, perhaps the most exciting area of science today. Written by some of the leaders in the field, it gives terrific insight into what is going on in the gut, how to change it to improve mood, and the largely unappreciated links between mental health and the many other diseases now linked to the gut microbiome."
--Rob Knight, Director of the Center for Microbiome Innovation, University of California at San Diego, author of Follow Your Gut and coauthor of Dirt is Good
"Anderson, Cryan and Dinan have infused life into cutting edge research that is often still mired in the scientific language.... The authors take on a near impossible task, to translate 150 years of research into the infinite complexity of human behavior and make it digestible. Compelling, engaging and informative, this book teaches us why microbes may affect all of our decisions.... This is brain food!"
