Description

In Think Smart, the renowned neuropsychiatrist and bestselling author Richard Restak details how each of us can improve and tone our body's most powerful organ: the brain. As an expert on the brain, Restak knows that in the last five years there have been exciting new scientific discoveries about the brain and its performance. So he has asked his colleagues-among them the world's leading brain scientists and researchers-one important question: What can I do to help my brain work more efficiently? Their surprising and remarkably feasible answers are at the heart of Think Smart. Dr. Restak combines advice culled from cutting-edge research with brain-tuning exercises to show how individuals of any age can make their brains work more effectively. In the same accessible prose that made Mozart's Brain and the Fighter Pilot a New York Times bestseller, Restak presents a wide array of practical recommendations about a variety of topics, including the crucial role sleep plays in boosting creativity, the importance of honing sensory memory, and the neuron-firing benefits of certain foods. In Think Smart, the man the Smithsonian Institution has called "wise, witty, and ethical" offers audiences helpful suggestions for fighting neurological decline that will put every listener on the path to building a healthier, more limber brain.

Professional reviews

"The latest scientific research on the brain offers surprising advice on proactive "brain-tuning." The acclaimed author of MOZART'S BRAIN, Restak is a clinical professor of neurology at George Washington University Medical Center. Restak outlines fascinating information culled from cutting-edge research, then offers advice on how anyone can achieve optimal brain function. New discoveries prove that certain exercises, the honing of sensory memory, sleep, even certain foods, can help the human brain operate more effectively. Arthur Morey crisply and clearly delivers Restak's accessible prose. Morey smoothly verbalizes complex medical terms while projecting an apparent fascination with the topic. He imparts the author's recommendations and practical knowledge for keeping the brain healthy with zeal. Your mind can't afford to miss this. A.W. (c) AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine"
