8 thoughts on “Books I enjoyed reading in 2018

  1. Thanks for Sharing your list! I am glad that you found “The Obesity Code” among your top 10.

    Would highly recommend to read Nick Lane’s “Power, Sex, Suicide: Mitochondria and the meaning of life”. It perfectly shows how nature/evolution and time have made the eukaryotic cell (non bacteria) anti-fragile and ramped them onto higher forms of complex life from amoeba to humans.

    Also it would be worth your time to read “Tripping over the Truth” to get an alternate theory of cancer as a metabolic disease (mitochondrial dysfunction) rather than genetic-based as illuminated brilliantly by Sid Mukherjee in “Emperor of all Maladies”

    Podcast to whet your appetite prior to reading above books: https://peterattiamd.com/tomseyfried/

    As a recovering diabetic, reading Jason Fung’s “Intermittent Fasting” and Volek/Phinney’s books changed my world view. Nick Lane’s books blew my mind and really opened me up to a world of complex non-linear systems, feedback loops and interdependent variables.

    • Thanks, Vishnu for your thoughtful comments. I will go through it and get back to you with questions.


  2. Thanks for sharing the list Jana. I have recently discovered your blog and I am absolutely loving your posts. Thanks for sharing your wisdom. 🙂

  3. Dear Jana,
    In your own way you are doing a great service to many. Being Mortal by Atul Gawande is one book which I read and which had a profound effect on me. Keep reading and keep sharing your thoughts, Jana.
