00:02:00 Sure. What do I do? Well, our new book will come out in about six weeks. It’s called You Can Fix Your Brain: One Hour a Week To the Best Memory, Productivity, and Sleep You’ve Ever Had. It’s already ranked number one on Amazon under strokes and neurological disease, so that is great that the word’s already getting out there.
