Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
With her measured seven-step plan, Harvard neurologist Pasinski connects brain health and beauty for women seeking to age well without plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments. The program--which involves setting new goals and trying new activities; taking control of physical health; making exercise a priority; eating brain-enhancing foods--can be implemented as steps or simultaneously, allowing readers of various ages and physical conditions to proceed at their own pace. An advocate of simple lifestyle changes meant to stimulate a trickle-down effect from the brain, Pasinski counsels against such notorious agers as smoking, drinking alcohol and soda, crash dieting, allowing stress levels to spike, and losing sleep, as well as eating meat, watching TV, using Botox, and remaining in bad relationships. Addressing recent research promoting the health benefits of consuming alcohol, caffeine, herbs, and supplements, Pasinski points to their dangers, contending that her diet will provide most readers with optimal nutrition in the right proportions. While Pasinski's recommendations are conservative, readers will find plenty of creative ideas (e.g., mind-reading exercises, hip-hop dancing, mentoring, investing) to clear their minds, strengthen their bodies, and look and feel younger. (Dec.)
Library Journal
"Beauty is skin deep," the old saying goes, but author and neurologist Pasinski asserts that beauty is actually brain deep. It was once believed that we were born with all the brain cells we would ever have. However, Pasinski points out that the brain keeps producing neurons and making new connections throughout life. The key, Pasinski says, is to stay active and engaged. But keeping the brain in good shape requires more than doing puzzles and word games, though they may help. She gives women lifestyle advice that does not require a trip to the plastic surgeon or the cosmetics counter. Her seven-step plan involves increasing neurons by making simple changes to one's daily routine like shopping at a different store or socializing with friends. Pasinski explains how exercise, adequate sleep, reducing stress, and a healthy diet not only improve cognitive performances but also give you more energy.Verdict A well-organized and easy-to-read book with activities for anyone who wants to keep their brain fit. Ideas include the very simple, for example, reading more, to the more involved, such as taking up a new hobby or adhering to a healthier diet.—Phyllis Goodman, West Chester Lib., OH

    Nothing Extraordinary

    There is nothing in this book that most people don't know already. Eat well, get exercise, try new things, stay social, etc. I was a bit disappointed.
