Restak is a practicing neurologist who wants to "enhance your brain's natural biological predispositions in order to enhance your ability to concentrate." In light of recent evidence that vigorous brain exercise retards the effects of the dementias, listeners are exposed to a wide variety of cerebral exercises to constantly form new synapses and maintain established ones. We move from verbal descriptions of Tai Chi for the cerebellum, to examples of brain-twisting memory exercises for the cortex, and are taught the method of calculating the optimum time for brain rest (short power naps) during stressful work. The doctor combines neuroanatomy lessons with lots of advice. His delivery is professional and persuasive. J.A.H. 2003 Audie Award Finalist (c) AudioFile 2003, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 03]
