Recognized as one of the best in his field, surgeon, academic, and philanthropist Dr. Sharad Paul brings together everyday health with evolutionary biology and shows how it shapes who we are and what our bodies individually need. Starting with our brains, this book covers everything from our skin and muscles, to hearts, diets, and stress management. Throughout, Dr. Paul will share key information and steps to improve our daily well-being—impacting everything from our energy levels to memory retention to our overall longevity.

To achieve better health, we need to understand our evolutionary past. Within our evolutionary biology and genetics, bodily systems, diet, and psychology is the story of how and why your body works the way it does and how it all combines to make you who you are. Through a blend of medical mysteries, patient stories, and science, Dr. Paul takes us on “an exhilarating journey through the shifting landscape of genetics, health, and evolution” (Siddhartha Mukherjee, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of The Emperor of Maladies: A Biography of Cancer).
