My grandmother urged me to eat fish and carrots because they were brain food and were good for you, anyway. In essence, that is the message of this book (adding vitamins, minerals, herbs, and some drugs, both established and experimental, to my grandmother's list). At least the authors (a pharmacist and his wife) recommend at the beginning of the book that the reader should be guided by a "qualified health professional" in taking these nutrients or drugs. Yet much of the research cited in the bibliography on the effect of these substances on mental function is either out of date (more than 10 years old) or published in periodicals of questionable medical authority.
