Overview

The Better Brain Book by David Perlmutter, Carol Colman

From the author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Grain Brain and New York Times bestseller Brain Maker...

Loss of memory is not a natural part of aging—and this book explains why.

 

Celebrated neurologist David Perlmutter reveals how everyday memory-loss—misplacing car keys, forgetting a name, losing concentration in meetings—is actually a warning sign of a distressed brain. Here he and Carol Colman offer a simple plan for repairing those problems, clarifying misconstrued connections between memory loss and aging, and regaining and maintaining mental clarity by offering the tools for:

Building a better brain through nutrition, lifestyle changes, and brain workouts

Coping with specific brain disorders such as stroke, vascular dementia, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's, multiple sclerosis, and Lou Gehrig's disease

Understanding risk factors and individually tailoring a diet and supplementary program

Features a "Life Style Audit," quizzes, a brain fitness program with the most effective ways to exercise your brain, and a nutritional program that details the best brain food and supplements.

The author fills out a very good picture of how the brain works and what it needs to work well. He tosses in a list of bad things to remove from your life from transfats to mercury. However, most of the book is about well worn bromides that have been around for fourty years. So, his groundbreaking news items are few and far between. Nevertheless, this is a good all around book for taking care of the best tool we have to get through life and live it well. So, I'm a bit divided on the subject. Perhaps, I will find a particular item here that will become very important in helping me maintain my inspirational lifestyle in the future. I intend to keep the book until I can find the focus on the book that works well for me or until I gift it away.
