Cons: authors are dishonest. They intentionally hide some of the side effects of the drugs.
Examples: fipexide has been linked to liver damage - the book says nothing, piracetam does have withdrawal symptoms - the book says the opposite, caffeine improves short term memory - the books says that there were "studies" that showed the opposite. I see the message: buy our "safe" drugs and stop drinking "very dangerous" coffee.
BEFORE YOU BUY ANYTHING IN THIS BOOK, THOROUGHLY RESEARCH THE DRUG ON YOUR OWN.
No wonder Ward Dean is now spending 7 year jail term for taxes evasion.
I did not keep up with the program, but my brain never returned to ground zero. However, I recently went through a great deal of chemo and finally an immunotherapy. Initially I did quite well with the chemo with respect to brain function. I’m now noticing some slight change. Time to review this book and research further as well. I’m very grateful to the author.
I found the book to be well laid out and easy to access.
In this country the Big Pharma has all the business interests to sell you prescribed expensive drugs and has no intention for you to do well with over the counter medication. The doctors lie to people claiming that the nootropics are "nutritional suppliments or herbs" when in fact they are medications made with countless studies & research which is different than "nutritional suppliments" which don't have much studies but mostly folk traditions. This book will educate you on medication which can make you alert and keep your brain in good shape and if you don't eat junk food then you can enjoy a long and healthy life which doesn't fit the agenda of big pharma and the government which has to pay you social security longer than their estimated longevity. In Europe one can buy all these medications over the counter from any Pharmacies while in this country you have to buy them via mail order from all sorts of distribuitors and the prices are here at least 3 tiimes bigger than Europe.
I also had some interaction with Dean, Fowkes, and Morganthaler back in that era and subscribed to the CERI newsletter. I can tell you from personal experience, they are terrific. They were so helpful and kind. The fact that Ward Dean is in prison in my mind says nothing about him being "dishonest' as a previous reviewer points out, but to the fact that our government picks certain individuals who have counter ideas to the establishment and choose to persecute them. Let's not be naive, folks.........

If you're interested in smart drugs, this is a classic book that was WAY ahead of its time. Well worth picking up a second-hand copy.
