Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

With her measured seven-step plan, Harvard neurologist Pasinski connects brain health and beauty for women seeking to age well without plastic surgery and cosmetic treatments. The program--which involves setting new goals and trying new activities; taking control of physical health; making exercise a priority; eating brain-enhancing foods--can be implemented as steps or simultaneously, allowing readers of various ages and physical conditions to proceed at their own pace. An advocate of simple lifestyle changes meant to stimulate a trickle-down effect from the brain, Pasinski counsels against such notorious agers as smoking, drinking alcohol and soda, crash dieting, allowing stress levels to spike, and losing sleep, as well as eating meat, watching TV, using Botox, and remaining in bad relationships. Addressing recent research promoting the health benefits of consuming alcohol, caffeine, herbs, and supplements, Pasinski points to their dangers, contending that her diet will provide most readers with optimal nutrition in the right proportions. While Pasinski's recommendations are conservative, readers will find plenty of creative ideas (e.g., mind-reading exercises, hip-hop dancing, mentoring, investing) to clear their minds, strengthen their bodies, and look and feel younger. (Dec.)

Format: Paperback
We've heard about Suduko and crossword puzzles and how they improve memory and brain function but this is a very well written and researched book about many more varied ways that we can maximize and improve our brains at any age. It sounds like it's for women but it applies and is just as pertinent to men so I would encourage men, husbands, male partners to read it too. I particularly like the refreshing concept that beauty is not just physical and also about maximizing intelligence and how that can increase your self esteem and the way you are perceived by others. Beauty is more than skin deep! Being a health care professional I was skeptical about whether it would teach me anything new but I was pleasantly surprised! More than anything, the author is extremely positive and encouraging so you enjoy reading the book and want to keep reading once you've started. Lastly, you can go back to it again and again to enhance your progress. My compliments to the author for an excellent and truly inspiring and instructional first book.

This is an amazing book explaining that it is never to late to wake up our brains and and stay young. Many great ideas as to how to keep a sharp edge on learning and keeping our brains as "tuned" as we can keep our bodies. Very positive and uplifting, a "must" read for all ages
Hopefully this will not be her last book. She makes you want to read more and learn what an amazing thing our brain is and how we can make it better.
The book is very energizing and easy to understand

WOW at the brain!! A fascinating topic! This book explains the brains impact on beauty. It's got a mixture or very basic things like how important sleep is and then adds to that by teaching you about your circadian rhythm and how to reset it.

Very well written. Sections are short and concise. Information is easy to follow, with examples of past patients, and information you can start implementing right away.

The ONLY thing I didn't like in this book, was the reference to the BMI system (body mass index system). It's an inaccurate system which no one should follow. It doesn't take in to consideration how much lean mass a person has verse fat, and well..it's just a fail!!

I'd recommend this to others, both male and females can get something from it - although it's written specially for females. It's also never to late or to early to start following some of the advice.
