Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

McKhann, a professor of neurology at John Hopkins, has coauthored this manual on the workings of the brain with his wife, Albert, director of gerontology research at Massachusetts General Hospital. Although the writing is dry, there is excellent information here for the aging adult. The authors acknowledge that growing older quite naturally involves some physical changes in the brain. They present the most effective ways, based on scientific research and case histories, to minimize these changes and their impact on everyday life. Strategies are offered to improve memory, such as doing mental exercises and maintaining a regular exercise program. For the disease-free older adult, the authors recommend a well-balanced diet and getting an adequate amount of sleep. They stress the importance of recognizing and seeking medical assistance for depression, hearing or vision loss and urinary and sexual problems. McKhann and Albert also deal extensively with a variety of brain disorders including tumors, Parkinson's Disease and Alzheimer's, and detail the latest medical treatments and drugs that may ameliorate some of these conditions.

This book will soothe anyone who is facing the natural aging process. Most people probably don't think they have any control over the way their brain functions, especially as one ages. However, if you read this book, you'll receive amazing information on how to reduce risk for diseases, recognize symptoms, and general information on your brain. There are even exercises you can practice, to help you "keep your brain young." The authors are clearly experts in their field.
