HASH(0x95492bdc) out of 5 stars Worth every penny($0.00) but I liked it, till the end 12 April 2012
By Pony Trott - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This book was very thought provoking, and made me want to start exercising more (and get my grandchildren out more). But it basically says to stay mentally and physically active (mostly physically). It starts off very boring with how your brain works and neurons and neurotransmitters and synapses and such. Then it tells you that you have to exercise, and all through your life you are building these neurotransmitters. You have to challenge yourself with new stuff. But we all know we should exercise. We just don't. But it makes you smarter, he says, and can prevent Alzheimer's. The good thing is you may not have exercised for the last 10 years (or 20-40 years) and you can start now. I really think that it has encouraged me to want to exercise more, even if walking. But even there, he says to keep challenging yourself and walk further every time.
Your brain controls your muscles and your muscles build up your brain.
Our brains have grown larger in the 1.7 million years since the cave man. But something happen in dangerous situations, we revert back to our cave man instincts. No matter what we have learned we will do the fight or flight thing and forget even any martial arts we have learned... Then half way through the book he starts to tell you about this exercise called REVAT Refex Training or NeuroReflexive Programing in REVAT. This is when he starts getting to the real stuff. And the sales pitch.

HASH(0x9660afe4) out of 5 stars good reminder 24 April 2012

Good review and for those who don't know----good start. Can't beat the price, How could it be worth less than at least 3-4 stars??? Thanks to the author, or whomever made it available for free....hopefully will stir up enough consciousness in folks who take a few minutes t read it...to get up and MOVE. Movement is life...anything else is heading for dysfunction/early death.
HASH(0x9660aee8) out of 5 stars Starts off good, ends as a plug for his school 14 Mar. 2013
By Alphatonic - Published on Amazon.com

This started off as the most interesting book Ive read in a while. I would definitely recommend everyone especially parents and old folks to read HALF of this book. The first half of the book talks about how the brain works "instinctively" or "primitively" and how beneficial learning new motor skills is to the brain and your well being. After that all the author talks about is how learning martial arts is a complete waste of time and utterly useless only to find out he himself teaches martial arts and his school will teach you "the only way" martial arts can be effective. He also completely bashes grappling and ground fighting as completely ridiculous. Maybe someone should educate him to the fact that 80% of fights end up on the ground. It was almost like reading two separate books or 2 separate volumes in a series, in the same book when he switches to bashing martial arts and promoting his "Revat" system which pretty much continues the age old argument of "my way of doing martial arts is better than yours". At least that's what I took from it. Hope this helps!
HASH(0x98d332fc) out of 5 stars misleading, in my opinion 15 Aug. 2014

not really what I expected. Author kept telling you some reasons for the title of the book, but then doesn't give you any by the time you get to the end. Was disappointed in that, felt misled, really. There are links to his website which I didn't go to, as I felt I should have received more information by buying this book.

This was an interesting book to read. Not sure I really come away with what they were trying to get people to understand though.
