Publisher Comments:

The fact is that everyone forgets.

It can happen at any age. What most people don't know is that you can exercise your memory just like any other part of your body. For years, Dr. Cynthia Green, director of The Memory Enhancement Program at Mount Sinai School of Medicine, has been helping people--from busy parents and CEOs to retirees--achieve maximum memory fitness.

Total memory workout--8 easy steps to maximum memory fitness

In this remarkable book, Dr. Green outlines her simple and effective program to achieve maximum memory fitness in just eight easy lessons. Each lesson focuses on one aspect of memory followed by a series of specific "memorcises" designed to build memory muscle.

Inside you'll find fun and effective ways to:

  • Remember names and faces
  • Recall important information at work
  • Improve your retention of facts in books and technical data
  • Keep track of appointments and dates
  • Remember where you put your keys, left your glasses, parked your car

You'll also learn the ten lifestyle factors most likely to lower your memory potential--and how to change them--the best diet to boost your brain power, the truth about "memory enhancing" supplements such as ginkgo biloba, how certain medications may affect memory performance, and when memory lapses are normal and when they indicate an underlying disease.

Unlike other memory programs that rely on tricks and gimmicks, here are practical memory-training techniques that are easy to learn and that really work. Starting today, you can regain a level of memory fitness you never dreamed possible. You have nothing to lose but your car keys...again.
