The Better Brain Book

coverThe Better Brain Book: The Best Tools for Improving Memory, Sharpness and Preventing Aging of the Brain, by David Perlmutter, and Carol Colman, from Riverhead Books, ISBN 157322278X. Contrary to popular belief, forgetting where you put your keys or what you went to the store for are not normal signs of aging. They are symptoms of a distressed brain. Neurologist Dr. David Perlmutter shows readers how easy it is to regain and maintain clarity by identifying brain toxins, following a three-tiered food and supplement program, and performing specific exercises for keeping the mind alert. Readers will learn much more about stroke, Alzheimer's, Parkinson's and other neurological conditions than doctors generally tell.
