Review by Library Journal (2011-12-01)

Although there are no scientifically proven preventive measures for Alzheimer's disease or dementia, both conditions are a growing problem among the elderly and an increasing concern among those soon to become elderly. Here, Small (psychiatry, Univ. of California, Los Angeles; director, UCLA Longevity Ctr.) and his wife, Vorgan, expand some of the memory skills and mental workouts Small first presented in The Memory Bible and include further research and anecdotal evidence about how to protect the brain with physical- -exercise, healthy nutrition, and specific vitamins and minerals; to strengthen memory skills; and to reduce stress to slow down-or even prevent-the onset of Alzheimer's disease. A clear and helpful seven-day start-up program for Alzheimer's disease prevention is included.

Verdict: Other titles cover this timely and important topic, but readers will appreciate- -the authors' practical and upbeat advice; this book will make readers feel that they can do something to protect themselves from this devastating disease.
