How come I can never find my keys? Why don't I sleep as well? Why do my friends keep repeating the same stories? What can I do to keep my brain sharp?

Scientists know. Brain Rules for Ageing Well, by developmental molecular biologist Dr. John Medina, gives you the facts - and the prescription to age well - in his engaging signature style.

With so many discoveries over the years, science is literally changing our minds about the optimal care and feeding of the brain. All of it is captivating. A great deal of it is unexpected.

In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. Medina showed us how our brains really work - and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools to match. Now, in Brain Rules for Ageing Well, he shares how you can make the most of the years you have left. In a book destined to be a classic on ageing, Medina's fascinating stories and infectious sense of humour breathe life into the science.



'This is required reading for anyone concerned about mental and physical health - i.e., everyone not in youthful denial. With a conversational tone and infectious wit, Medina explains what happens as we age, the science behind it, and what we can do to improve how our our brains (and bodies) function.'
