Clear, practical ways to improve brain health
Dr. Isaacson begins by describing the landscape of the brain and explaining important distinctions about brain health, such as the difference between normal cognitive aging and more serious forms of cognitive decline (i.e., forgetting your keys is normal; being unable to remember a person you know well is not). Subsequent chapters give great advice about ways to treat our brains well through cognitive activity, exercise, good nutrition, and healthy sleep habits. Although the delivery is a bit dry, the information is presented very clearly and will be valuable to anyone concerned with staying sharp as long as possible.
This guy’s a medical doctor?
Dr. Isaacson has a very accessible way to bring complex concepts and aspects of medicine to the lay person. I look forward to applying what I’ve learned to keep my brain going until a very old age. Highly recommend this listen for anyone who wants to improve their brain power!
