    Different way of looking at it. Check it out

    It is never just one thing you have to do to improve anything and this goes the same with memory. It is a process that takes time and you notice results immediately. His way of enhancing your memory is simple and the thing is that it really just requires a lot of brain activity along with other actions that we should be involved in regardless if we are trying develop good memory skills or not. It is more of a natural way instead of a lot of supplements (although he does have those options available) and it is quite fun how he approaches the issue.

    I recently picked up a copy of Dr. Gary Small's THE MEMORY PRESCRIPTION--a 14-day plan that offers a healthy diet for your brain and body along with exercises aimed at increasing your physical and mental fitness and reducing your stress. You only have to read the inside flap of the book to learn that, like most authors of self-improvement books, Dr. Small promises a lot. Unlike most authors, though, he makes good on his promise. Not to sound like an infomercial, but after reading the book and committing to his plan I'm feeling more focused and have alot more energy. And my memory has improved. This is not just my subjective assessment; the book contains tests you can take which gage objectively your memory improvement from day to day. I also have lost four pounds. Either that or my wife is playing a cruel joke with my scale. Not bad results for two weeks. I found the book to be a light and enjoyable read. I also found the exercises within it to be both fun and challenging. Most importantly, I was able to commit to Dr. Small's plan with relative ease, which was a pleasant surprise and rarely my experience with these kinds of books. I recommend this book to anybody looking to increase their vitality and improve their memory and overall health--which, I assume, is just about everyone.

    Sounds like a great book

    It combines the information of several books, ie. diet, stress reduction, et al, into one focused discussion about improving memory. Informative, less reading, and saves money. Add to that, research conducted by other universities to support his claims suggests that this could be more than a 'fad diet' style of book. Sounds like this book could really be useful. After all this work, I hope that Dr. Small can enjoy his book promotion tour.

    There's a saying that applies to muscles and minds: 'If you don't use it, you lose it.' Anyone who has watched their own mind or the the mind of someone they love begin to slip knows how painful it can be. Prior to this book, it seemed that all one could do was to helplessly watch this process. Dr. Small's book shows that there are many things all of us can do at any age to keep our minds vital and sharp. Recent research has shown that the brain can in some cases regenerate brain cells. It wouldn't surprise me if in the future some of the practical approaches that Dr. Small offers may actually assist in that process.
