I have read a number of books lately on brain function, fitness, etc. Then I read a couple reviews here just as I started and the comments about it not digging too deep into subject matter or being very technical had me thinking that this might not be a worthwhile read. However, the opposite was true. This book covers a lot of territory and it would have had to have been multiple volumes to cover everything it discusses in a deta Not exactly what I was expecting.
This book covers a lot of territory and it would have had to have been multiple volumes to cover everything it discusses in a detailed and technical manner. It wins as a no-prerequisite-required read and it wins as a good introduction to a broad range of sub-topics. Even though I had previously read numerous other texts, this one put forward some material that was new to me and made it quite worthwhile.
The only negative I had with the content was some of the information regarding nutrition. There were a number of good points made and some details new to me, but it also tended to lean a bit too traditional as well. Anyone who knows the real background to the Mediterranean Diet wouldn't put it forward as a data-driven decision but skipping over that half a page is not much of a complaint overall.

7 ways to keep your memory sharp at any age
I highly recommend this guide for anyone experiencing increasing episodes of senior moments beyond the occasional brain-fart. Further, the "Workouts" and exercises are of particular value to those who suddenly no longer require an active level mental participation -- such as recent retirees -- yet still desire maintaining their levels of acuity. Remember: Use it or lose it! Apr 10, Joan rated it really liked it. This is not a scholarly book by any means. It is more of the conversational style. There are lots of good tips and information in it.

If one is going to read only one book on keeping the brain sharp, this is a good introduction and is very accessible. I am sure there are much better ones out there but this one is very easy to read and understand. Jan 02, Gloria rated it really liked it Shelves: non-fiction.
Short chapters on the many ways we can stay sharp whether we are younger or older. Quite a few websites listed. While some are rather obvious bits of advice crosswords, jigsaw puzzles, etc. Overall, you can't go wrong with almost anything put out by National Geographic. Sep 12, Linda rated it really liked it.
