Review

"Successful aging just doesn't happen-- it takes knowledge, wisdom, and action. Read this book and let John Arden take you on a fascinating and very human journey through the science and steps to healthy aging."

-- Louis Cozolino PhD, Pepperdine University, author of the Healthy Aging Brain


"The Brain Bible book translates the latest developments from the abstruse world of the neurological sciences into accessible, real-world guidance for those who are sharp enough to choose to remain sharp. Essential reading."

--John Soderlund, Publishing Editor, New Therapist,  South Africa


"Dr. John Arden provides an uplifting read for those of us who look forward to aging actively and enjoyably. He beautifully describes the lifestyle factors that we can control that have enormous effects on the quality of our lives. This is a must read."

--Ian H. Robertson, PhD,  Trinity College, Dublin, Ireland

"In The Brain Bible, the ultimate guidebook for living healthy and happy, Dr Arden suggests simple behaviours, supported by the latest science, to improve the brain's wellness!"

More About the Author

John Arden, Ph.D. has 40 years of experience providing psychological services and directing mental health programs. Since 1999 he has served as the Director of Training for the Kaiser Permanente Medical Centers, Northern California region. He has developed one of the largest mental health training programs in the United States. In this capacity he oversees more than 100 interns and postdoctoral psychology residents in 22 medical centers. Prior to this he served as the Chief Psychologist at Kaiser Permanente Medical Center in Vallejo, California.

Dr. Arden's study of neuropsychology has inspired him to integrate neuroscience and psychotherapy, synthesizing the biological and psychological into a new vision for psychotherapy: Brain-Based Therapy. His work incorporates what is currently known about the brain and its capacities, including neuroplasticity and neurogenesis, with psychotherapy research, mindfulness, nutritional neuroscience and social intelligence. He conducts seminars on Brain-Based Therapy throughout the United States and abroad.

Author of 14 books, his most recent publication, Brain2Brain, describes how neuroscience informs psychotherapy and how to talk to clients about their brain. The Brain Bible, describes five well researched factors that keep the brain healthy. Rewire Your Brain, describes how the general audience can utilize the practices of Brain-Based Therapy. He is the lead author (with Dr. Lloyd Linford) of two volumes for the practitioner entitled Brain-Based Therapy: Adults and Brain-Based Therapy: Children & Adolescents. His first book, Consciousness, Dreams, and Self, was awarded the 1997 Outstanding Academic Book Award by Choice, a publication of the American Library Association. An international panel of jurists nominated his second book: Science, Theology, and Consciousness, for the CTS award funded by the Templeton Foundation. Arden explored the degradation of the fabric of American society with America's Meltdown: Creating the Lowest Common Denominator Society. His seven self-help books are: Surviving Job Stress, Improving Your Memory for Dummies, Conquering Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (with Dr. Victoria Beckner), Heal Your Anxiety Workbook, and Heal Your OCD Workbook (with Dr. Daniel DalCorso), and Rewire Your Brain. www.drjohn.arden.com

Format: Hardcover
Excellent! I thought I knew a goodly amount regarding healthy lifestyle choices and the impact poor choices have - but I was wrong! Dr. Arden's book gave clear, new information for a lay person about the brain/neuroscience and how/why different choices in diet, exercise, learning activities will slow down aging. Highly recommend this book for anyone who is aging themselves (!) or who has more elderly parents.

Clearly written, highly relevant information backed up by current research. A VERY HELPFUL BOOK whether you're already well or in need of improvement. I believe it is great for anyone, as well as for counsellors who can use the guide for themselves and help spread the word.

This book makes a compelling list of points for your wellness - make sure you read it all. You could skim the parts about specific brain components if that type of text does not interest you - you can get the essence from understanding everything else which is an easy read.

Format: Hardcover
As a licensed counselor, I seek to help my clients improve overall health and healing. John Arden has done the hard work of gleaning the most important information from the latest neuroscientific research and has written a no-nonsense, approachable guide to brain health that is accessible for everyone. Incorporating John Arden's recommendations (especially SEEDS) into the treatment plan for each of my clients has been helpful no matter what the presenting issue or stage of development. John's work is a game changer. Highly recommended.

This book is truly amazing. It's written for professionals who want to "improve their game." You'll highlight often and really enjoy the expertise of Dr John Arden. And the book is also written with down to earth examples and a style that really brings the ideas home. The book truly stimulates further reading and study of the materials presented. You'll feel so much better after learning and living the healthy, positive teachings in this wonderful book. Enjoy!

As a physician who has jumped with both feet onto the bandwagon of "lifestyle medicine," I was delighted to read this book and discover that Dr. Arden's recommendations for supporting and maximizing brain function include the same important nutrition and lifestyle factors that are crucial to optimizing overall health. I enjoyed the explanations of how and why in Part One, and especially liked Part Two, which lays out the most important categories of healthy brain behaviors, in easy-to-understand format and with plenty of interesting real-life examples. Not only did I reaffirm my own understanding of how to provide the best environments for the brain to thrive on, but I also learned additional important tips and information to apply to my own life and to my healthcare practice going forward.

One of my Lifestyle Medicine clients recently illustrated the power of Dr. Arden's simple yet persuasive writing: She'd bought and read his book (on my recommendation), got to the part about alcohol and the brain, and shortly thereafter told me "I think I'll just quit drinking; it's not really good for me OR for my brain!" (she's 80 years old and is starting to take important steps toward cleaning up her diet and lifestyle to promote greater functionality and vitality).

I love this book and refer to it often; highly recommended for anyone wanting solid and specific—and do-able— guidelines for protecting one of our most important assets: our brains.
