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.

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.

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.

This book is so informative. My whole family has done the testing in the back of the book and started on the supplements that it ask for and we all feel better with the information that we are taking in. We are also remembering information from when we are kids. Has been tons of fun for my family to hear stories of when their parents were kids. Great Book!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This book does lay out effective practices for improving your cognitive functions. The author clearly explains different types of cognitive decline and how to address each one of them. The diet he recommends is essentially a ZONE diet, which I agree, it is the best diet going for cognitive function. In regards to exercise, he basically says to perform both cardio and resistance training getting a preferable hour of exercise each day.

The reason I only gave four stars and considered three stars was because his book talked a lot of hormones that in my opinion aren't really practical for addressing cognitive decline.While some of them are very closely related to cognitive functions, the others were a bit of a stretch and getting access to these medications is even further a stretch. Another big downfall was that he recommends a lot of supplements, and of course he recommends you buy them from him. Since he decided to discuss hormone therapy, he should have clearly explained his recommendations, in regards of levels and the difference between women and men, which he did not.

Overall, the book is worth reading to help those that would like to improve their cognitive function, but I would take the supplements and hormone section with a grain of salt.
