Publisher Comments:

A groundbreaking and fascinating investigation into the transformative effects of exercise on the brain, from the bestselling author and renowned psychiatrist John J. Ratey, MD.

The evidence is incontrovertible: Aerobic exercise physically remodels our brains for peak performance. In SPARK, John J.
