Keep Sharp, Build a Better Brain at Any Age by Sanjay Gupta, MD

Aloha Everyone,

Sanjay Gupta is a practicing neurosurgeon and CNN’s chief medical correspondent. His latest book, Keep Sharp was published jointly with AARP*. *AARP is a US based interest group focusing on issues affecting people over the age of 50.

First part of the book goes into the science of the brain. Some data’s Sanjay Gupta shares are alarming. Putting his neurosurgeon hat, he explains that about 47 million Americans have some evidence of preclinical Alzheimer’s disease.  He also provides a number of reasons how the brain begins to malfunction.

Keep Sharp is a self-help book. Sanjay Gupta’s message is that dementia is not necessarily an inevitable consequence of old age. 

Keep Sharp is an uplifting reference book for me to turn to. It contains a wealth of information, references of medical specialists in different fields and disciplines as well as where to get professional help when one is needed.  

Aloha -- Cathi
