HASH(0x9b4e02ac) out of 5 stars Excellent Book on Brain Health Jan. 31 2012
By Book Fanatic - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9b4b7c54) out of 5 stars Younger Brain, Sharper Mind April 10 2013
By little white dove - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9b457528) out of 5 stars Doctor Braverman is just a good guy. July 29 2013
By Don Spilman - Published on Amazon.com
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.

HASH(0x9cacd72c) out of 5 stars Braverman needs to read Hoffer. Good book, nevertheless!! Feb. 17 2015
By johnp - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I would first read, Abram Hoffer's book, 'Orthomolecular Medicine for Everyone' then 'Orthomolecular Psychiatry", then this book. Braverman omits much of research of Linus Pauling and Hoffer, but does a good job of extending Orthomolecular treatment of patients using some novel non-pharmacological techniques. Hoffer was a PHD in Biochemistry with grad degrees in Nutrion, Ag engineering/Ag Chemistry, an MD who practiced psychiatry and general medicine. Pauling was a triple PHD and double Nobel Prize winner. Hoffer and Pauling established the powerful fields of natural healing in western medicine of Orthomolecular Nutrition, Orthomolecular Medicine and Orthomolecular Psychiatry.

Bravermans fails to mention that Hoffer found out how to reverse Alzheimers/Dementia and treat depression, alcohol/drug/food addiction, and schizophrenia. In particular see Hofffer/Walkers book 'Smart Nutrients ' on the brain and how to maintain brain health. It is far, far more comprehensive than this book, and far lower in cost!!

Unfortunately Hoffer died along with Pauling 10 years back.

Hoffer was simply the greatest Physician since Jesus Christ.

HASH(0x9bdb3960) out of 5 stars I am disappointed by it Jan. 3 2015
By Ray - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am disappointed by it. I heard the author speak several times before at various anti-aging conferences and also read other books from him. This book has several mistakes (references do not fit the text etc.). He also uses heavy conventional drugs when he knows from the anti-aging literature that there are equally effective, but less toxic alternatives. I would not waste my time reading it.
