If you are over 40 years old, you already know the bad news: names may be harder to remember; a word may sometimes elude you as you speak; you may sometimes misplace your glasses, your car keys (or even your car!). But medical research is lifting the veil of mystery off the process of brain aging and offering up strong evidence that you do not necessarily have to accept deteriorating brain function as you get older. From the benefits of exercise to the effects of stress relief, from what you eat and drink to the kind of work you do, from the natural substances that are most likely to help to the new medications your doctor can prescribe, this book outlines literally hundreds of preventive measures you can take to keep your mind sharper, stronger, and healthier your whole life. Among the many topics covered in this book are:
Amazing new studies revealing who is most likely to get Alzheimer’s disease - and how we can all reduce our risk
Powerful evidence showing how the Brain-Saving Diet can boost your defenses against memory loss
How stress, depression, anger, and low self-esteem can literally threaten the structure of our brains, and what we should all be doing about it
The surprising discovery that inflammation is slowly cooking our brain cells, and how we can stop it
The two ways you can literally add new brain cells!
A book that will change the way you live, eat, and work, Saving Your Brain is a wake-up call to those people who have long since learned the wonders of taking care of their body - and now have the very real chance to provide the same lifesaving care for their brain.

What did you like most about Saving Your Brain?
Everything. It so hooked me that I carried a dictaphone round in my pocket so that I could make notes on the hoof. I will listen to it again in a couple of months because I must have missed a lot because I was always thinking and discussing in my mind what I had just heard. A truly amazing book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
The book is written so that one puts oneself in the position of the only character!
Which scene did you most enjoy?
Almost all of it
Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, I was filled with excitement at the changes Iarge and small that the book suggests, and the honesty with which it debunks so many of the untruths that the public are regularly fed.
Any additional comments?
This not a novel but a well researched and presented collection of facts about our brains. The audio sample needs to suit one's ear (not jar) if one is going to get the most out of it. So listen to that for sure. It suited mine and I enjoyed it so much that I bought hard copies for my two favourite doctors.
