Keeping your brain in shape ! May 3, 2008
If you expect tons of memory excercises, this is the WRONG book for you. This book is about keeping your brain healthy, in shape. It's about UNDERSTANDING MEMORY, ESTABLISHING MEMORY, PRESERVING MEMORY and last but not least, EXERCISING YOUR MEMORY. My best take-aways;
- non-sense and truth about the aging brain - the danger of drinking coffee on an empty stomach - when to take Calcium & Magnesium best - memory and motivation - the effect of sleep & excercises on memory - protecting your memory from overload in a high-speed world
Fantastic book for everyone interested in taking care of ones brain/memory health.

A Good Start for Memory Improvers Jul 12, 2007
It definitely takes the technicality of some memory books I've read. It is very basic and a good start for anyone interested in improving their memory whether you're a student, adult, or elderly. It lays the basis for good health and tricks so your mind can be at its sharpest. I think anyone interested in this subject might want to try this book first then move onto more complicated and technical books.
Some things this book tackles is some memory myths out there and gives you a clearer understanding of how your brain works, its parts and how they communicate as a whole to provide you with your memories. A con with this book is that it bombards you with nutritional information for three chapters. It goes through all the vitamins and lists all the foods that have them. Why couldn't the author just say "take a multivitamin, eat a balanced meal, and stay away from this and that...etc." in a couple of pages with some nice neat tables? This isn't Nutrition for Dummies, but maybe I'm being too critical. Anyways, besides that, the rest of the book gives you some really good association systems, such as PEG or loci, and many examples that you can use them with in everyday life. It also helps you plant the seed for better self awareness, such as defusing stress, and gives you tips on how to improve your life such as having the right attitude and avoiding multitasking. It also suggests ways to deal with memory suppressors such as job related stress or dealing with technology. It also gives you some tips for school. That's what I got out of it anyway. It's a pretty quick read too. I give it a thumbs up.
Real help for memory May 13, 2003
As a mental health professional I am always looking for practical information and techniques which are accessible and understandable to the average patient. This book provides many accurate and useful facts about memory in an organized and interesting format. It speaks to the concerns of many who would benefit from specific exercises to enhance memory. It also cautions against the all too tempting urge to find a "quick fix," such as inappropriate and/or exclusive reliance on vitamins or suppliments. This book encourages a balanced and effective response to concerns about memory.
