"Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine is a tour de force of mitochondria and human health. When it comes to curing chronic disease and extending longevity, it's not an understatement to say that the content of this book will be shaping the future of medicine."--Ari Whitten, best-selling author and creator of The Energy Blueprint
"In Mitochondria and the Future of Medicine, Dr. Lee Know takes the mystery out of the evolving science surrounding mitochondria. Here, he clearly and concisely describes mitochondrial structure and function while presenting us with multiple examples of why healthy mitochondria are so crucial to our overall health. Without conjecture or overreach, Dr. Know also provides the rationale behind nutritional strategies that have great potential to improve the status of our mitochondria, a central tenet of healthy aging."--Miriam Kalamian, author of Keto for Cancer
"In 1991, when faced with my own health challenges, mitochondria became front and center in my quest for health. Over the last two and a half decades, more and more researchers and clinicians are finding themselves interested in these little powerhouses and proclaiming themselves 'mitochondriacs.' Dr. Lee Know does a brilliant job shedding light on this once ignored organelle and shows us how to care for our most important metabolic system."--Dr. Nasha Winters, co-author of The Metabolic Approach to Cancer
"The topic of mitochondria may seem dry and uninteresting to the uninitiated, but this book makes mitochondria come to life with vivid descriptions accessible even to those with no training in biology. From infertility to aging to cancer and neurological disease, Dr. Lee Know will teach you that mitochondria play a central role in much that we care about in health and disease."--Stephanie Seneff, PhD, senior research scientist, MIT Computer Science and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory

First good bit: I loved the writer’s passion for the subject and I found it infectious. He left me wanting to read more.
The book went wrong for me in a couple of areas:
Firstly, the technical detail. It was heavy going at times , more like an A level textbook than an introduction to the role of mitochondria in our cells. He missed a great opportunity to perhaps explain it in simpler, layman terms and this meant a lot of the detail went over my head. Some of his analogies helped, I could have done with more of those!
I was also hoping he’d offer guidance on what supplements to take that may help slow the aging process. Yes he listed the supplements in detail ( and advised what benefits each has to offer) but I felt he offered us more of a menu, basically saying, “This is what’s available, you choose which ones you want”
However, I can’t fault him for being thorough and I am now more interested than ever in the role that mitochondria play in our health. I will maybe read the book again and see if I can get more out of it on second reading.
