The Sinners from Mitar
Immediately upon receiving this book, I read the text on the back cover. My already high level of interest was elevated further. Without delay, I popped my reading glasses in place and proceeded to read "Think Smart" non-stop from cover-to-Cover. The author's presentation of his prescription "for Improving Your Brain's Performance" was nothing short of Brilliant.
After my first reading I searched the Internet in hopes of finding "Think Smart" as an AudioBook. My search was rewarded with the discovery of an unabridged, beautifully narrated version of the whole book, which I have listened to while re-reading the complete text of the book.
The Audio Version is now on my MP3 player, and I review a chapter or two every day. My local public library has several of Dr. Richard Restak's books in its catalog.
I am a 73-year-old retiree and I have no problem understanding the neuroscience as presented by this gifted writer and scientist.
I agree with Scientific American Magazine, Dr Restak is "one of the world's most important scientific thinkers. I am convinced that the exercises in his prescription can help anyone ward-off the threat of dementia and Alzheimers.

It was nice to get this entire book on 1 disk. The quality of the mp3 files is not a problem at all (I was worried it'd be a low bit rate). I have owned the physical book as well and wanted to revisit it in an audio cd format. I used to love the book but now I am 50/50. Maybe now I just like the book.

For one, he recommends drinking wine. Alcohol is toxic, period. Alcohol is also addictive, and consumption in moderation can easily lead to excess. I do not like the fact that Restak recommends alcohol, regardless of the form, one bit.

Another problem I have with his book is that he recommends almost unlimited eating of tuna and other fish which may have heavy metal contamination! I was a regular tuna eater, I ate it at least 4 meals a week. After about 4 months I started to have symptoms of heavy metal poisoning. Some of these symptoms effect cognitive function, so I am VERY surprised that he would recommend this kind of diet. I stopped eating tuna and the symptoms went away. I have replaced it with salmon which does not have the mercury content of tuna, and you still get cognitive benefits. :D

Aside from the utterly miserable dietary advice, there are a few other small problems with the book that I wont go into, because in the end it does not matter. Why does it not matter? Because whether I like the book or not, I will keep it because there are very few works such as this that cover such a wide amount of information about improving the brain.

So in short I like it, but I don't love it. If I lost it, I'd probably buy another copy but it wouldn't be high on my priority list as long as I owned a copy of Brain Rules.

THe book was interesting - particularly the first part of the book about the interrelatedness of our physical health, emotional health, etc., and brain function. However, much of what was in the book was stuff I'd heard before in the popular press or in news (if you read science and health news at all). Not a lot of surprise.

It was good to hear that even getting started late or making changes late in life is not TOO late. Some suprising findings that I wasn't aware of with regards to electronic game playing and older adults.

But, all in all, just an okay book.

A must read for those who want to know how your head really works and how we can traverse the superhighways this best gift to mankind. Brain science has come light years in only the last decade and the author explains how, what , and why we now know so much about how the brain works. Imagine a cave man trying to fix a computer. Author Restack pulls us all out of the cave and shows us the light. Its heavy reading, but what a ride; good theory and helpful proscriptions for mind growth. Parts can be dry, but the oasis are carnivals of excitement and hope. This is an uplifting journey.

I liked Restak's in depth incursions in various aspects of brain development and maintenance. His approach was to stress the importance of a healthy physical body with the various mental exercises that keep the brain involved. It is hard to think of an age group of readers who would not like this presentation, but I think anyone over 50 should consider the tips presented in this work. Yes, there are some scientific concepts to deal with, but that is really part of the drill. His discussions of the impact of technology on the brain were balanced. I think I'd have enjoyed it even more if there were more 'graphics' included, but then again I am male and visual stimulants work best with that kind of brain.
