--Washington Post

I had started reading The Memory Bible by Gary Small before I found The Memory Cure on CD to listen to on a road trip. At first, I kept thinking I've already read this. They are both easy to understand and have good ideas for keeping your brain working. I will have to get a hard copy of "Cure" so I can study better his 10 step memory protection plan. My younger sisters give me good counsel when they tell me not to quit playing tennis. Our brains need physical and social activities to stay health ...more

This book reminded me of a Dale Carnegie book. I think the narrator was the same. My philosophy in life is that many things we do are self-fulfilling prophecies.

This book keeps things positive. Dr. Fotuhi reminds us that Alzheimer's is a rare disease, that we likely don't have it, especially if we're young, and that we can make choices to lower the risk of Alzheimer's in our future. He is a big proponent of exercise, healthy diet, and supplements, specifically Vitamins E and C. This is a helpful, quick book for people who are experiencing anxiety because of memory lapses.

I found this book through my husband at a time when I was working on an Alzheimer's Study. I often reccommended it to the caretakers of our patients and other friends. coincidentally, I waited in a quiet office one time when Dan was visiting another physician, and it turned out to be this author/physician's office.
Crucial to good brain health is working those brain cells all of the time with new projects and new problems and solutions. Also, physical health and activity are important.

Helpful tips for diet to prevent memory loss (5-6 fruits/day; dairy products, bread, veggies daily; fish/twice a week) and exercises to help you remember. Also good to know: 90% of people who worry about memory loss DO NOT have Alzheimer's. :)

I purchased this book to alleviate my fears of having Alzheimer's...luckily it did. And it was also very informative in terms of how memory works in the brain and things you can do to improve your memory...start eating bluberries now! ;)

This s a little dated but still interesting.

It turns out that he 10 things I need to do to avoid memory loss are pretty much he same things I need to do to best enjoy the rest of my life from a fitness viewpoint.

Reviews need to be careful with indicators (high blood pressure, cholesterol, sugar); suggests ketogenic diet may be good.
