McKhann and Albert, two of the worlds leading authorities on how the brain works, have written a highly intelligent, straightforward, and important book. Take care of your gray matter: buy and read this book. It is a great investment in your future." ––Kay Redfield Jamison, Ph.D., Professor of Psychiatry, The Johns Hopkins School of Medicine and author of An Unquiet Mind and Touched with Fire
"Guy McKhann and Marilyn Albert are to middle-aged people and seniors what Dr. Spock is to babies and their parents. Keep Your Brain Young is must reading for anyone over 50; it should be on your bedside table." ––Judy Woodruff, CNN, and Al Hunt, Wall Street Journal
"I highly recommend this readable, informal, and entertaining guide to achieving and maintaining optimum brain functioning as we age. Guy McKhann and Marilyn Albert provide a single, reliable, comprehensive guide to the changes we all can expect as we enter the second half of life. Best of all, their sound advice, tinctured with generous doses of hope and encouragement, provides an effective antidote against a ‘gloom and doom attitude toward aging." ––Richard Restak, M.D., coauthor of The Longevity Strategy: How to Live to 100 Using the Brain-Body Connection and author of The Secret Life of the Brain
"For the first time, the authors have presented an interesting and understandable scientific explanation of mind/body function as we get older. This book explains how memory may fade with age without the loss of intellect, and how to assist nature in maintaining such function." ––Eunice K. Shriver, Executive Vice President of The Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Foundation and Founder and Honorary Chairman of Special Olympics, Inc.
