I love that this was written by a mother daughter duo with PhDs in neuroscience and pharmacognosy. I love that the plants mentioned in the book have scientific studies behind them and I love that the authors include notes on safety concerns for each plant mentioned. I was pleasantly surprised to find recipes in the book as well. Your Brain on Plants is well researched, well written and well organized. It has inspired me to try to grow a few of the plants myself and bake up some of the recipes.
