As medicine continues to increase longevity, it becomes more and more vital for us all to keep the mind healthy and vigorous.

As a cofounder and director of the American Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine, Dr. Robert Goldman has at his fingertips all of the latest scientific research on what each of us can do not only to retain all our mental powers as long as we live but also to actually strengthen and improve our mind-power as we age.

Now he shares that information, in a layperson's terms, with numerous self-tests, information charts, and quizzes, so that we all can improve memory, sharpen concentration, reduce stress, learn to sleep better, and--above all--ward off the devastation of Alzheimer's disease.

Goldman discusses the many nutritional supplements, vitamins, minerals, and medications that have been proved to enhance mental fitness, providing specific doses and regimens. But beyond that, he also describes particular exercises and lifestyle techniques designed to sharpen mental acuity.

As medicine continues to increase longevity, and it becomes more vital for us all to keep the mind healthy and vigorous, Brain Fitness is destined to become our bible for the new millennium.

Review:

Robert Goldman holds a Ph.D. in steroid biochemistry, founded the National Academy of Sports Medicine, and is an adviser to the Journal of Longevity Research. In Brain Fitness, he makes a valid point that's been proven by recent studies: your brainpower, like the muscles of your body, can be expanded through exercise. And with the life expectancy of humans nearly doubling in the past century, he says, paying attention to your cognitive skills and taking steps to ward off Alzheimer's is becoming more and more vital.

Through various self-quizzes, charts, and self-tests, Brain Fitness helps you determine what state your brain is in now--and helps you boost your memory power accordingly. Some of the information is surprising (such as that over-the-counter painkillers like ibuprofen have been shown to inhibit brain function and memory with long-term use). Some other parts, such as the section on how chronic stress can inhibit your health, has shown up in all of the numerous anti-aging books of late. But for baby boomers interested in learning about what the aging process is doing to their memories--and what they can do to boost their brain power--Brain Fitness is a good place to start.

From the Back Cover:

"The best medical, psychological, nutritional, and lifestyle advice in print for keeping your most vital organ--your brain--fit and functioning at peak levels."
--V.A. Howard, Ph.D., Codirector, Philosophy of Education Research Center, Harvard University

"This book illustrates the twenty-first-century program for preserving brain function and preventing neurodegenerative changes."
--Frederick J. Vagnini, M.D., F.A.C.S., Clinical Professor of Surgery, Cornell Medical Center
