Description

Keep your brain young, healthy, and sharp with this science-driven guide to protecting your mind from decline by neurosurgeon and CNN chief medical correspondent Sanjay Gupta.

Throughout our life, we look for ways to keep our mind sharp and effortlessly productive. Now, globetrotting neurosurgeon Dr. Sanjay Gupta offers insights from top scientists all over the world, whose cutting-edge research can help you heighten and protect brain function and maintain cognitive health at any age.

Keep Sharp debunks common myths about aging and cognitive decline, explores whether there’s a “best” diet or exercise regimen for the brain, and explains whether it’s healthier to play video games that test memory and processing speed, or to engage in more social interaction. Discover what we can learn from “super-brained” people who are in their eighties and nineties with no signs of slowing down—and whether there are truly any benefits to drugs, supplements, and vitamins. Dr. Gupta also addresses brain disease, particularly Alzheimer’s, answers all your questions about the signs and symptoms, and shows how to ward against it and stay healthy while caring for a partner in cognitive decline. He likewise provides you with a personalized twelve-week program featuring practical strategies to strengthen your brain every day.

Keep Sharp is the only owner’s manual you’ll need to keep your brain young and healthy regardless of your age!

    I am very impressed by Dr.Gupta's style and his comprehensive way of providing the reader with in-depth information on Dementia! I am a physician, well-acquainted with mental health and degenerative diseases of the brain and I highly recommend Dr.Gupta's book! Excellent!

    Awesome work Sanjay. You put in such terms I could make it my own!
  • (5/5)
    First rate job by an author self-reading his own work. Helpful inflection, good pausing. A smooth memorable tone. Best of success to you!
  • (4/5)
    The info in this book could probably be presented more concisely but it's interesting to hear the many examples and experiences of the author in his own voice. My mother has dementia so my motivation is trying to avoid the situation she's in. Exercise, Diet, and Sleep. To me, that's what we need to focus on for extending our healthspan and that's supported by the info in this book.
