100 Days to a Younger Brain: Maximize Your Memory, Boost Your Brain Health, and Defy Dementia

100 Days to a Younger Brain is a lifestyle guide on brain and whole-body health by neuroscientist Dr. Sabina Brennan. Due out 14th Jan 2020 from Hachette on their Da Capo Lifelong imprint, it's 304 pages and will be available in paperback and ebook formats. It's worth noting that the ebook format has a handy interactive table of contents as well as interactive links and references throughout. I've really become enamored of ebooks with interactive formats lately.

I liked the logical format and layout here.  The introductory chapters include a lot of interesting, scientifically accurate information about brain health and neurology and how lifestyle choices can affect overall health and brain health specifically. The how-to-chapter has a program (chapters 3-8) with timelines for making specific changes along with guides and explanations about what, when, how, and why changes are advantageous and not least, how to reasonably make those changes.

This book isn't a passive read at all. Changes will require the direct active participation of the reader to make changes and also to document in a journal what's being done and how it's affecting sleep, diet, energy levels, cognition, etc. The book is full of lots of charts and example logs for the reader to fill out and follow to track progress.

This is a positively written and encouraging DIY for brain health. Instead of feeling overwhelmed when reading, I felt like I could honestly follow much of the advice the author gives.

Four stars.

Disclosure: I received an ARC at no cost from the author/publisher for review purposes.
