    " Wasn't as impressed by this as I expected. Too much of a Freakonomics fan to find her conclusions viable. The fact that people who do X also don't get Alzheimer's doesn't mean that doing X *keeps* you from getting age-related memory loss. Nonetheless, her suggestions won't hurt. "

    " An interesting compiliation of suggestions to forestall the onset of age-related memory loss and possibly, Alzheimer's. While many of these suggestions have been widely touted recently: Mediterranean diet, exercise, etc., there are a few suggestions that some may find brand new. A worthwhile read. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Nick | 11/19/2013

    " Just like the title promises, here are 100 things you can do to stave off the end of your brain. Most of them add up to eating fruits and veggies and exercising, but this book covers the whole waterfront. I was taking notes all the way through so I wouldn't forget, uh, something important. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jenny | 11/11/2013

    " This book was a little redundant at times (could have been 75 tips instead of 100, maybe?). But it did have lots of useful information about things you can do to help prevent/postpone age-related memory loss. I made a list of 20 things from the book to try to work into my regular routine. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Paula Schuck | 10/30/2013

    " Excellent info. A lot of things I've heard before, but quite a few I hadn't either. It gives me a smidge of hope that my mind will last a tad longer than all of my grandmothers. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Blanche | 9/12/2011

    " A lot of really good advice here. Also some not so good advice; particularly its recommendation to consume Cocovia: a MARS product made from Monsanto GMO. That shit's going to do way more bad than good. To the author's credit, Monsanto hype wasn't present at the time he wrote that suggestion. "

    " This was about.........I forgot already. Haha! Alzheimers! Most of the tips involved taking herbal supplements, a habit I don't plan on taking up. I was very happy to see coffee drinking and reading were helpful in warding off memory loss. Hopefully since I do both in abundance I will be safe. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erika | 8/25/2011

    " This contains excellent tips for lifestyle improvement, the Alzheimer's protection is really an added bonus. I did find the latter chapters to be redundant, but it was great information. Definitely worth a skim. "
