It all starts with your brain: how you think, how you feel, how you interact with others, and how well you succeed in realizing your goals and dreams. When your brain works right, so do you. When it s out of balance, you feel frustrated, or worse. Yet amid all the advice that bombards us daily about how to keep the rest of our body strong and healthy, we hear very little about how to keep the most complex and magnificent organ of all the human brain in top working order.
Based on the most up-to-date research, as well as on Dr. Daniel Amen s more than twenty years of treating patients at the Amen Clinics, where he and his associates pioneered the use of brain imaging in clinical practice, Magnificent Mind at Any Age does exactly that. Dr. Amen shows how many of the traditional approaches to overcoming the mind-centered challenges that hold us back try harder, work longer, find the sheer willpower either do not work or may make our problems worse. The true key to satisfaction and success at any age is a healthy brain. By optimizing our brain function we can all develop these qualities of a magnificent mind enjoyed by the world s most successful and happiest people:
Increased memory and concentration
The ability to maintain warm and satisfying relationships
Undiminished sexual desire and performance
Goal-oriented perseverance
Better impulse control and mastery over potential addictions
Free-flowing creativity and the ability to relax and enjoy life s pleasures
To achieve this, as Dr. Amen explains here in clearly accessible language, we have a range of options available, including proper diet, natural supplements and vitamins, exercise, positive thinking habits, and, if needed, medication. In addition to revealing how we can all take advantage of such strategies to enjoy the benefits of a balanced and healthy brain at every stage of our lives, Dr. Amen also pinpoints specific ways to tailor behavior, nutrition, and lifestyle to deal effectively with common mental challenges such as memory problems, anxiety and depression, attention deficit disorder, and insomnia.
Whether you re in the midst of a demanding career or are looking forward to an active and richly rewarding retirement, Magnificent Mind at Any Age can give you the edge you need to live every day to your fullest potential.

Can't stand the guy that is the "reader" of the book's voice: but the material is so worth getting the actual book!! I couldn't stand listening to him so I only got to the 4th CD before I gave up on it!

I had already seen the presentation of this book on PBS by Dr. Amen, so I was aware what the materials would be like, but I had no idea whether it would be worth the investment for the book, so I thought I'd listen to the CD's first!

I'm going to order the book for myself, as the first 4 of them shows me the investment will be worth the cost of the book.

But, the "reader's" voice really turned me off! It made the whole thing SO boring!!

Awesome information for people that are interested in keeping their brains healthy well into their senior years! Critical for parents to read so that they understand how important their "talk" is to their child as well as the "nutrition" that their child receives from the parent as they grow!!

Dr. Amen has been a lead brain researcher for over 25 years, and is a true leader in his field - what a compassionate man!!!
