In Think Smart, renowned neuropsychiatrist and bestselling author Richard Restak details how each of us can improve and tone our body’s most powerful organ: the brain.

As an expert on the brain, Restak knows that in the last several years there have been exciting new scientific discoveries about the brain and its performance. So he has asked his colleagues—among them the world’s leading brain scientists and researchers—one important question: what can I do to help my brain work more efficiently? Their surprising and remarkably feasible answers are at the heart of Think Smart.

Dr. Restak combines advice culled from cutting-edge research with brain-tuning exercises to show how individuals of any age can make their brains work more effectively. In the same accessible prose that made Mozart’s Brain and the Fighter Pilot a New York Times bestseller, Restak presents a wide array of practical recommendations about a variety of topics, including the crucial role sleep plays in boosting creativity, the importance of honing sensory memory, and the neuron-firing benefits of certain foods.

In Think Smart, the man the Smithsonian Institution has called “wise, witty, and ethical” offers audiences helpful suggestions for fighting neurological decline that will put every listener on the path to building a healthier, more limber brain.

    " Very interesting. Don't think the organization of the book is how I would like it. Hard to go back and find information. I find the topic very fascinating. Not an easy read, however--takes quite a bit of concentration. "
