Dr. David Perlmutter, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Grain Brain, and Dr. Austin Perlmutter, his son, explore how modern culture threatens to rewire our brains and damage
our health, offering a practical plan for healing.
Contemporary life provides us with infinite opportunities, along with endless temptations. We can eat whatever we want, whenever we want. We can immerse ourselves in the vast, enticing world of
digital media. We can buy goods and services for rapid delivery with our fingertips or voice commands. But living in this 24/7 hyper-reality poses serious risks to our physical and mental states, our
connections to others, and even to the world at large.
Brain Wash builds from a simple premise: Our brains are being gravely manipulated, resulting in behaviors that leave us more lonely, anxious, depressed, distrustful, illness-prone, and
overweight than ever before.
Based on the latest science, the book identifies the mental hijacking that undermines each and every one of us, and presents the tools necessary to think more clearly, make better decisions,
strengthen bonds with others, and develop healthier habits. Featuring a 10-day bootcamp program, including a meal plan and 40 delicious original recipes, Brain Wash is the key to cultivating
a more purposeful and fulfilling life.

Brain Wash is an important book that tackles a colossal modern challenge: the quest to reclaim our health and happiness from a world that encourages us to overspend, overindulge, and underthink. David and Austin Perlmutter are consummate guides who share a multitude of approachable, concrete, and down-to-earth solutions. Highly recommended. —Adam Alter, author of Irresistible and Drunk Tank Pink
By showing us how to consciously rewire our brains for connection, compassion, and better decisions, Brain Wash provides a framework for reclaiming joy and health in the modern world. —Deepak Chopra, author of Metahuman
Brain Wash reveals how our day-to-day decisions are deeply influenced and actively manipulated by the modern world. But more importantly, it is a powerful manual that allows each of us to reclaim control of our choices and make better decisions that will pave the way for health and happiness. While we generally know what's best for ourselves, acting on this knowledge is a constant struggle. Brain Wash allows us to turn this knowledge into action. I highly recommend this innovative book. —Daniel G. Amen, MD, founder, Amen Clinics and author of The End of Mental Illness
In a world where most of us are feeling rushed, tired, and burned out, Brain Wash reveals how even small changes in your lifestyle choices can dramatically improve your day, your mood, and even your life. —Melissa Hartwig Urban, Whole30 Co-Founder and CEO
This book was a total surprise. A father and son representing entirely different generations arrive at the same conclusion: that wellness fosters connection and this creates a meaningful life. Beautifully scripted and a bit like an adventure story, I kept wanting to get to the 'final message' of how being well makes us more loving and lovable. This is the endpoint where well-being takes us, and this is especially critical in our disconnected digital age with its constant distractions. Do yourself a favor and get this book —John Ratey, MD, author of Spark
We all know what it's like to feel distracted and overwhelmed. Brain Wash is an invaluable guide that's crammed with solutions for helping us to restore our focus, energize our bodies, and refresh our minds. —Gretchen Rubin, author of The Four Tendencies and The Happiness Project
Brain Wash shows us how our ability to make the best decisions is literally being hijacked every day. But more importantly, Drs.

Brain Wash brings a healthy dose of compassion to the world. —Dr. Josh Axe, bestselling author of Keto Diet
Inflammation, enhanced by so many influences of our modern world, dramatically reduces our ability to make good decisions and feel content. Brain Wash not only explores how this is happening, on a global scale, but also shows what we can do right now to take back control. From spending time in nature to choosing to consume one plant-based meal a day, Brain Wash provides the tools the reclaim and rebuild your brain's ability to make better choices and allow health and happiness to flourish. —Mark Hyman, MD, #1 New York Times-bestselling author of Food and director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Functional Medicine
What if there was nothing wrong with you, and so much wrong with the ways in which our dominant culture hijacks your decision-making? You'd want to know how to reclaim your mind, your biology, and your sense of balance. Brain Wash feels, at once, like a sympathetic recognition of our modern day struggle with tech and a science-paved path back home to ourselves. This is one of the most important topics of our time, and Drs. David and Austin Perlmutter have compassionately, intelligently, and creatively opened a vital dialogue. —Kelly Brogan, MD, author of Own Your Self
