Descrip­tion: Just like the rest of our body, the brain requires care, atten­tion and proper exer­cise. Yet, we often ignore this most vital organ because few know where to begin. Based on the new and expanded sec­ond edi­tion of The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness –named a Best Book by AARP in 2011– co-author Alvaro Fer­nan­dez will dis­cuss exactly how to “use it or lose it,” offer­ing a ground­break­ing new approach to improv­ing brain health and per­for­mance at any age, from chil­dren to younger and older adults.

With prac­ti­cal and per­son­al­ized tips for pre­serv­ing and enhanc­ing brain func­tion through­out life, the new book com­bines a user-friendly tuto­r­ial on how the brain works with advice on how to choose and inte­grate lifestyle changes and brain train­ing exer­cises to improve men­tal focus, build emo­tional resilience, enhance mem­ory and ward off Alzheimer’s dis­ease. Fea­tur­ing a cap­ti­vat­ing and engag­ing inde­pen­dent analy­sis of hun­dreds of sci­en­tific stud­ies pub­lished in the last 10 years, the book also includes in-depth inter­views with 20 lead­ing sci­en­tists who often chal­lenge con­ven­tional wis­dom and pre­vail­ing brain health think­ing and care.
