Summary
Neuroscientist Amen has news for you: your brain is involved in everything you do--learn to care for it properly, and you will be smarter, healthier, and happier in as little as 15 days! Brain dysfunction is the number one reason people fail at school, work, and relationships. The brain is the organ of learning, working, and loving--the supercomputer that runs our lives. It's very simple: when our brains work right, we work right--and when our brains have trouble, we have trouble in our lives. Luckily, it's never too late: the brain is capable of change, and when you care for it, the results are amazing. This bookgives you the tools you need to optimize your brain power and enrich your health and your life in the process.--From publisher description
