New book on How to Optimize Brain Health and Performance at Any Age

SharpBrainsGuide_3D_compressedWe are pleased to announce that, after much hard work and three glob­al sum­mits to dis­cuss the lat­est sci­ence and best prac­tices, The Sharp­Brains Guide to Brain Fit­ness: How to Opti­mize Brain Health and Per­for­mance at Any Age (April 2013; 284 pages), is now avail­able for pur­chase as paper­back ($15.95) and e‑book ($9.95)!

Mod­ern life places extra­or­di­nary demands on our brains. The Sharp­Brains Guide helps read­ers dis­cov­er what real­ly works, and what does­n’t, to improve brain health and per­for­mance at any age, to delay or pre­vent cog­ni­tive decline, and become smarter con­sumers of both media cov­er­age and sci­en­tif­ic research in the process, by cut­ting through the clut­ter of mis­con­cep­tions, super­fi­cial and con­flict­ing media cov­er­age, and aggres­sive mar­ket­ing claims.
This new and much-expand­ed edi­tion of the guide AARP named a Best Book on Brain Fit­ness com­bines a user-friend­ly tuto­r­i­al on how the brain works with advice on how to choose and inte­grate lifestyle changes and research-based brain train­ing to improve brain health and per­for­mance. Offer­ing use­ful, prag­mat­ic and per­son­al­ized tips and sug­ges­tions that are easy to imple­ment, the Sharp­Brains Guide offers a ground­break­ing new approach for self-assess­ing cur­rent brain fit­ness needs and iden­ti­fy­ing the most rel­e­vant and evi­dence-based meth­ods to pre­serve and enhance brain func­tion through­out life. Whether your goal is to become more resilient, enhance mem­o­ry, ward off Alzheimer’s dis­ease, or sim­ply improve men­tal focus to per­form bet­ter at work, this how-to guide shows you exact­ly how to “use it or lose it.”
