اهم ما يجب عليك تذكره هو ان مخك ينــمو ويتغيــر باستمرار ."

وتضطرد قدراته باستثارته وبالتدريب والتعليم وبالغذاء الجيــَد والمكملات الغذائيــة.

لم يفــت الوقــت بعد لتقرر مصيره."

كانت هذه اخر جمل اضافتها الكاتبة فى هذا الكتاب الذى يجمع بين الاستفادة والمتعة.

وهل امتع من ان تعرف بعض من اسرار هذا العضو الذى ميزنا الله به؟

وان تعرف ماذا تفعل لتحافظ عليه وتنميـــه ؟

وباختصار توجد عدة نقاط حازت اعجابى الشديد بهذا الكتاب :

learned the word ' enteric '
Things that could have been said in 2-3 pages have been elaborated over into 300 pages. Book in informative, but for a normal reader, the content could have been shortened enormously.

كتاب يستحق 5 نجوم لعده أسباب منها انه يشرح موضوع علمى معقد و هو المخ و كيف يعمل و تشريح كامل لوظائف المخ بأسلوب شيق و عملى و دون ادراج مصطلحات علميه معقده.
ففي الكتاب مجموعه من النصائح و المعلومات بأسلوب بسيط تساعد الرجل العادي على فهم وظائف المخ المختلفه و كيفيه الوقايه من الامراض التي تصيب المخ مثل الزهايمر و العته و افه النسيان
أيضا مجموعه من الفيتامينات و المعادن التي تساعد المخ على العمل بصوره افضل و تحسين اداءه ووقايته من اعوامل الخارجيه التي تحد من عمله!

FISH OIL! this book explains how to keep your brain from atrophying simply by changing your diet. the idea that once brain cells die they are gone for good is a myth of the 20th century! this book reads fast and has concise lists of facts and recommendations, all backed up by scientific studies. totally worth it.

oh, and carper explains the chemistry of the brain in such a way that even i can understand. seriously i recommend this.

Just like Dr. Andrew’s Book, this one shows that your body (and your brain specifically) is influenced tremendously by the food that you eat. It’s a fascinating read but I will say that I do not agree one iota with all her “stone age” and “evolution diet” talk. Nevertheless, some good info.
currently doing a self-study course from this book. It is interesting so far...especially to note how men's brains age differently than women! It's worth reading.
I recommend this book, especially if Alzheimer's or even ADD or ADHD run in your family. Really great info. for a person of any age.
Jean is one of the best translators of scientific study to layman's language. A trove of excellent information on nutrition and health.
