"Written in an easy to understand style, Saving Your Brain contains a good deal of "meat" and summarizes what we know and do not know about healthy living. An excellent contribution for the lay person who wants to know more."
–Michael Ronthal MBBCh, FRCP Associate Professor of Neurology, Harvard Medical School
"In his usual spirited and entertaining way, Dr. Victoroff challenges us all to be more proactive in attempting to maintain our most critical personal assets,our minds. His clear, logical and balanced perspectives in preventative psychological neurology are as refreshing as they are informative. Saving Your Brain is an intelligent anchor that is welcome in the rising tide of simplistic, overhyped brain nostrums. This is indeed news that we can use."
–Steve G. Massaquoi, M.D., PH.D., Department of Neurology, Massachusetts General
"Neurology has traditionally been a pretty strange branch of medicine, where incredibly highly-trained practitioners, using cutting-edge science, could mostly just tell you what was wrong and why they couldn’t do much about it. In recent years, a remarkable amount of information has emerged about what you can do to decrease the chances of falling victim to some of the features of brain aging that haunt us. Neurologist Jeff Victoroff presents a wonderfully helpful overview of this good news — accurate, up to date, accessible, and elegantly written."
–Robert Sapolsky, Ph.D. Professor of Human Biology, Department of Human Biology, Stanford University
