APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Think of this audiobook as a fitness program for your brain. In this insightful listen, Dr. Sanjay Gupta walks us through scientists’ discoveries about how we keep our minds sharp as we get older—and why that’s so important. Drawing from the latest research, Gupta addresses everything from the role of a whole-food diet to the importance of building new friendships to keep your neurons active. Just in case, he also delves into the early warning signs of conditions like dementia, so we know what to look out for. Gupta’s narration brims with the confidence you’d expect from a respected M.D. (and CNN’s chief medical correspondent)—but it’s still conversational, making his advice feel totally doable. We were encouraged by Gupta’s examples of real people who’ve used his approach to maintain mental acuity well into their eighties and nineties. Best of all, Gupta condenses his tips into a concise 12-week program for strengthening your own brain. They say you’re as young as you feel, but with a resource like Keep Sharp, you can stay as young as you think.
He goes into great description of why and how to live a better life. His scientific explanations and examples make it an easy read! I recommend!
I love anyone who tells the truth regardless of the outcomes.
Throughout this pandemic, Dr. Gupta has been honest with everyone about the true scientific facts behind this virus. I appreciate that greatly and feel forever indebted due to his saving my family’s lives as we followed his profound advice.
