Publisher Comments:

Did you know that women have 70,000 thoughts per day and one person's brain generates more electrical impulses each day than all the telephones in the world combined?

In Brain Fitness for Women, health writer Sondra Kornblatt offers an entertaining look at how women's brains work: the physiology of women's brains, new research in neuroscience, the differences between women's and men's brains, and how women's brains age.

Kornblatt offers fun facts (yep, that chocolate you're craving does boost cognitive function), tips (your brain wants a glass of water in the morning), and advice (forget multitasking, the brain can only process one thing at a time) for women who want to keep their minds in tiptop shape. She examines how hormones, the environment, exercise, stress, food, aging, and even friendship affect the brain, and offers strategies for keeping your brain on its metaphorical tiptoes at any age.

I finished Brain Fitness for Women last week. I really enjoyed it. I learned so much (Omega 3!) and was totally captivated by the format. Sondra's writing style (very funny) mixed with a lot of facts, presented in differing ways, made for a very, very interesting read. A huge amount of research was performed. I had heard about many of the topics before but the author's coverage(s) provided real depth for my understanding. I haven’t read many self-help books, being almost perfect in many ways, but in my experience, this is the most informative and best paced book. Thank you. I think have a better brain just for reading it!
