Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In A Better Brain at Any Age, Sondra Kornblatt, along with the experts she has interviewed, helps readers put their heads on straight through healthy activities for the body (exercise, healthy food consumption, and relaxation) and through speci? c activities to boost brain power like movement, eye rolls, supplements, and making environmental changes. Each of the seven chapters — Body-Mind Connection; Environmental Support; Food and Supplements; Intelligence and Learning; Memory, Learning Shortcuts, and Brain-Stretchers; Emotions and Decisions; and Meditation and Bigger Perspectives — details how that topic impacts the brain, and offers tips and highlights for readers to either delve into the book or peruse it for quick boosts. Kornblatt teaches readers how to reduce brain stress and optimize mental agility, and shares information on how the brain interacts with the body, what habits impact the brain, positively and negatively, and how to maximize learning. She provides tips to strengthen memory, cognition, and creativity so readers can function better in their active lives. A Better Brain at Any Age offers a complete plan for total brain health in an engaging and accessible way.

Review:

"Health and science writer Kornblatt (365 Energy Boosters) has put together a friendly, wide-ranging tip sheet for understanding and maintaining the human brain, with exercises-lots of exercises (called 'brain boosters'). Encouraging readers to 'explore boosters that intrigue you' rather than trying to employ them all, Kornblatt covers a lot of territory with breezy efficiency, from the latest neurological findings (the adult brain grows between 500 and 1000 neurons each day) to the dangers of 'neurotoxicity' (new carpets can cause symptoms from rashes to seizures) to an overview of Gardner's multiple intelligences. Along with cognitive behavioral techniques (journaling, reframing, getting a lot of laughs, switching off negative thoughts), Kornblatt suggests various meditations, stretches and 'energy medicine' exercises ('Scratch your scalp to bring blood flow to the brain') that consciously incorporate all of the senses. Sections on the importance of social connections, meditation and diet cover some familiar territory, but Kornblatt maintains a game attitude and a lively pace that should keep self-helpers involved."
