A Truly Memorable Book

Feeling more forgetful? Making jokes to others about going senile, but inside nervous that it might be true? Wish there was a way to improve your memory that is grounded in reality and science rather than in "airy-fairy" promises from infomercials? Is there someone you care about who is losing their memory and you'd like to help? If you answered "Yes" to any of these questions, buy, read and use Dr. Small's book, "The Memory Bible." Written by one of the most respected clinicians and scientists in the field of aging, yet written in a way that everyday people will understand, this book will help you to improve your memory and hold onto your memory longer.

A Self-Help Book That Actually Helps

It's about time! After a string of disappointments from the the self-help section of my local bookstore I've finally found an exception: a book that actually helps. "The Memory Bible" from Dr. Gary Small delivers exactly what it promises: "a strategy to keep your brain young." Dr. Small deftly reduces a lifetime of esoteric research into a straight-ahead, easily-understood, entertaining book that explains the process of how the brain ages and what we can do to slow it down. Unlike most frivolous theories we have grown to expect from self-help books, Dr. Small's offering is rooted firmly in scientific fact and data. This is an educating and enjoyable read that speaks equally to both result-oriented and process-oriented people while delivering that one intangible that ironically we have come not to expect from books of it's kind: Help.

Quick reading, learned a lot

I never expected to like this book so much. It read fast and was pretty funny in parts. It gave me some good tips on how to improve my memory for names, places, numbers, etc. I learned a lot about things to do to protect against Alzheimer's disease and also about new drugs and treatments to help stop memory loss, that are available now or on the way. This is a great book, and I'm glad I read it in my 40's while I still have plenty of time to do stuff to protect my brain.

A Must-Read for People of All Ages

The Memory Bible is just what the doctor ordered -- Dr. Gary Small, that is. It should be required reading for anyone over 25 who doesn't want to buy into the myth that memory loss is an inevitable consequence of aging. I like that he begins with a simple memory assessment that lets you focus a program of memory training that fits your needs and lifestyle. He gives practical tips on what you can do to improve your memory now, ranging from a healthy-brain diet to mental aerobics and simple stress-reduction techniques. Dr. Small's fascinating research on early detection of brain aging gives us hope that new discoveries to stave off memory loss and Alzheimer's disease are just around the corner. The sooner we read The Memory Bible and start Small's memory fitness program, the better, because it's a whole lot easier to prevent brain cell damage than reverse it. The book is fun to read and has interesting stories and case studies.
