Millions of Americans say brain health is the most important thing to them as they age but most don’t know how to protect against decline—whether gradual or sudden, severe or mere forgetfulness. They also assume degeneration is inevitable and natural, but it’s neither.
With Keep Sharp: Build a Better Brain at Any Age, neurosurgeon and CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta shares the best-kept secrets of experts around the world for maintaining your mind, holding on to memories, building resiliency against disease, and continually boosting a robust brain, regardless of age.
In this guide for keeping your brain in top working condition, Dr. Gupta debunks widely-held myths, answers questions about diet, games, drugs, and supplements, and provides a personalized 12-week program with practical strategies to use daily. Drawing from the latest research, Dr. Gupta shows how you can reduce the risk of dementia and reveals the advances expected for the most intractable neurodegenerative diseases.
Dr. Gupta, a multiple Emmy Award winner, is the host of the podcast Coronavirus: Fact vs Fiction, and the New York Times bestselling author of Chasing Life, Cheating Death, and Monday Mornings. In conversation with Joshua Foer, a journalist and entrepreneur, the bestselling author of Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, co-founder of Atlas Obscura, and former U.S. Memory Champion.
