Clear, concise, prescriptive steps for improving your memory and keeping your brain young -- from one of the world's top memory experts.

Ever forget the name of an acquaintance or where you put the keys to your car If you're like most people, you probably have, but now -- thanks to the paperback publication of The Memory Bible -- much of this forgetfulness can be eliminated easily. According to Dr. Gary Small, the director of the UCLA Center on Aging, "Great memories are not born, they are made," and The Memory Bible provides the innovative memory exercises and brain fitness programs necessary to immediately improve your mental performance. Dr. Small's comprehensive program includes a "brain diet" of memory-enhancing foods and a list of the most effective drugs, as well as a workbook with a weekly and daily calendar.

About the Author:

Dr. Gary Small is the chief of the UCLA Memory and Aging Research Center. He lectures extensively all over the world, and often appears on national television shows including 20/20, Good Morning America, Today, CNN, NBC Nightly News, and CBS News. His articles have appeared in the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, Los Angeles Times, Washington Post, Time, Newsweek, and USA Today. He is the author of The Memory Bible and The Memory Prescription. He lives in Los Angeles.

From Library Journal:

Aging baby boomers are becoming acutely aware of their own memory lapses. Is each case incipient Alzheimer's or just a benign "senior moment"? The increase in age-related memory impairment has produced a host of new books on preventing (or slowing) memory loss based on the latest scientific knowledge of brain and memory. In Saving Your Brain, Victoroff, director of the neurobehavioral program at Ranchos Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, challenges the theory that Alzheimer's and similar memory disorders are abnormal responses to aging. Instead, he proposes that age-related memory loss may actually be a natural part of aging. Drawing on his clinical experiences and reviews of some 14,000 research studies, his fascinating treatise explores the evolution and function of the human brain and the many things that can damage the delicate balances that enable us to think and function. The author suggests numerous changes that can prevent memory loss and improve brain function: avoiding even minor head injuries and exposure to chemicals (including pesticides and aluminum in drinking water), increasing physical activity, eating a low-fat diet, and keeping mentally sharp with lifelong learning and other mentally challenging activities while avoiding the mind-numbing effects of television. In The Memory Bible, neuroscientist Small, director of UCLA's Memory Clinic and Center on Aging and the author of Parentcare, has compiled an amusing and informative array of self-tests, puzzles, quizzes, and other techniques to enhance memory performance. He also draws upon current scientific advancements in memory and recommends brain-saving lifestyle changes similar to Victoroff's. Small's approach is entertaining yet practical, and the numerous case histories are appealing, but some of his memory-enhancing techniques (like the "peg method" for remembering numerical sequences) seem too cumbersome to be useful. Both titles deserve a place in aging and self-help collections along with Guy McKann and Marilyn Albert's Keep Your Brain Young, which explores the relationship between brain health and physical well-being in later years.
