Format: Paperback
This is a useful book about a crucial topic, what you eat and how it impacts on you, by a well-qualified writing team -- neurosurgeon Dr. Arthur Winter and health columnist Ruth Winter. Especially useful is the section, "Will the Real Diet Food Plase Stand Up?" (pages 220-221), specific food suggestions that will do just what the subtitle says, "Diet and Nutrition for Maxmimum Brain Power." This book is a refreshing change from the typical diet books that focus just on losing weight. This comprehensive, excellent book covers foods that may cause headaches, carbohydrate craving in obesity, moods and foods, rules of a healthy diet for children, and so much more! Readers will want to refer back to this book again and again; a welcome addition to every school, public, and home library on this essential topic. An excellent resource and a "smart book" on smart food. Highly recommended.

I bought this book looking for a concrete gameplan on increasing brain efficieny for studying, etc. Based on the title and back cover, it appeared to be a good fit. Instead, the book focuses on science and offers very little in the way of practical application. I didn't complete the book - reading 3 chapters and scanning the rest was enough wasted time.
