Format: Kindle Edition
Having learnt so much from this book in comparison to other similar books I am now on a learning curve and my brain just loves the challenge it gets so this books was no exception. Its brilliant, amazing and workable. As you change your mind your brain changes and vice versa. You have to read the book all the way through . It explains how the brain needs to be intellectually challenged, us it or lose it, also how diet affects the brain, avoid carbohydrates, unhealthy fats and sugar and remember exercise boosts longevity, negative relationships are toxic to the brain. SO GET ON THE LEARNING CURVE, FOR BOTH BODY, MIND AND BRAIN

So much new that I learned...of benefit to avoid aging "badly"! 13 Jan 2014
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
Excellent! I thought I knew a goodly amount regarding healthy lifestyle choices and the impact poor choices have - but I was wrong! Dr. Arden's book gave clear, new information for a lay person about the brain/neuroscience and how/why different choices in diet, exercise, learning activities will slow down aging. Highly recommend this book for anyone who is aging themselves (!) or who has more elderly parents.

Written for everyone. But useful for my work in mental health, addiction, and trauma recovery. 27 Dec 2013
By B. Martin, LPC - Published on
Format: Hardcover
As a licensed counselor, I seek to help my clients improve overall health and healing. John Arden has done the hard work of gleaning the most important information from the latest neuroscientific research and has written a no-nonsense, approachable guide to brain health that is accessible for everyone. Incorporating John Arden's recommendations (especially SEEDS) into the treatment plan for each of my clients has been helpful no matter what the presenting issue or stage of development. John's work is a game changer. Highly recommended.

The Book I Wish I'd Written! 21 Dec 2013
By SFNeuropsych - Published on
Format: Hardcover
This book is fantastic and it is the book I wish I'd written. Dr. Arden has done his homework and includes all of the current research on keeping your brain healthy. His writing style is engaging and clear. I will be recommending this book to all of my patients!

Outstanding Life Information!!!!! 16 July 2014
By Joe Hegedus (counsellor) - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Clearly written, highly relevant information backed up by current research. A VERY HELPFUL BOOK whether you're already well or in need of improvement. I believe it is great for anyone, as well as for counsellors who can use the guide for themselves and help spread the word.

This book makes a compelling list of points for your wellness - make sure you read it all. You could skim the parts about specific brain components if that type of text does not interest you - you can get the essence from understanding everything else which is an easy read.
