Excellent Book on Brain Health Jan. 31 2012
By Book Fanatic - Published on
Format: Hardcover
I received an early copy of this book. I've read many books on brain and health and this is one of the best brain health books you are going to find. Braverman provides in-depth and very helpful information on how to recover and maintain a younger brain and top cognitive performance. The book covers what I consider all the important areas including ones that many authors ignore such as hormones and drugs. It includes a self assessment test to help you figure out what areas you need to work on as well as a lot of information you can provide doctors or other medical professionals. I've read some of Dr. Braverman's other books and I think this book is his best.

Highly recommended.

Younger Brain, Sharper Mind April 10 2013
By little white dove - Published on
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
There is a lot of good information in this book. It is well written and explanatory. The author is an MD so I view the information as creditable. There are also practical tests that one can take so see where there might be a problem. I definitely reccomend this book to anyone looking for answers to ADD, Alzheimers disease, dementias and other health issues as related to the brain. You will be surprised at how diet, physical exercise and mental exercise and the lack of can affect the brain.

Doctor Braverman is just a good guy. July 29 2013
By Don Spilman - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I have seen DR. Braverman and read his books for some time now, and highly respect him. He is not just a brilliant mind but a truly good person, with a heart for helping and encouraging people. His understanding of the brain and the importance of keeping it healthy and functioning well has been too long in coming. His writing is very understandable to the average mind.

Great book for young and old brains! Oct. 10 2013

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This book is so informative. My whole family has done the testing in the back of the book and started on the supplements that it ask for and we all feel better with the information that we are taking in. We are also remembering information from when we are kids. Has been tons of fun for my family to hear stories of when their parents were kids. Great Book!

must read for anyone over 50 Jan. 8 2014
By Melvin R McBride - Published on

Full of good hints on how to remember things. We all are working on our bodies, now it's time we get started on our brains. We must take care of both of them. Old age won't be any good if we can't remember anything.
