The Sharpbrains Guide to Brain Fitness
Selected by AARP as part of its Best Books Series, The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness is an invaluable guide that helps readers navigate growing brain research and identify the lifestyle factors and products that contribute to brain fitness. By gathering eighteen of the top scientists and offering insight, tools, and detailed descriptions of over twenty products, this text is an essential guide to the field of neuroplasticity and cognitive health. An accessible and thought-provoking read, this book also engages readers on emerging trends and forecasts of what the future will hold. While most of us have heard the phrase "use it or lose it," very few understand what "it" means, or how to properly "use it" in order to maintain brain function and fitness. The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness is designed to fill this gap.

Timely and to the point, The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness is a thorough and highly readable text by Alvaro Fernandez and Dr. Elkhonon Goldberg. In seven meticulously researched and fully annotated chapters with titles like ?The Brain and Brain Fitness? and ?Brain Training Software: Profiles, Evaluation Criteria and 21 Quick Picks,? the authors provide a concise overview of the four pillars of lifelong brain maintenance and an invaluable perspective on the growing field of Brain Fitness. An accessible and thought-provoking read, this book reviews the most current evidence behind a number of products making brain fitness and brain training claims so that readers can make informed decisions, and also educates professionals and all lifelong learners alike on emerging trends and forecasts of what the future will hold.
