Time for SharpBrains’ May 2013 e-newsletter, which features a variety of articles offering a more optimistic and evidence-based approach to brain and mental health than current practices.
First of all, let us highlight that Scientific American just published an excellent review of our new book. The author sums it up by saying that “…I wish I had read this awesome guide when I was much younger…I find the emerging field of neuroplasticity immensely exciting, and guides like this one are both hopeful and reasonable.” As a reader points out, the word “awesome” does not appear often in science-oriented publications…so we are especially proud to see the book merit such treatment.
