Overview

We all forget things sometimes -- our keys, a phone number, the reason we went to the market -- and our forgetfulness only increases with age. According to Dr. Gary Small, director of the UCLA Center on Aging, we can easily eliminate much of this problem with his innovative memory exercises and brain fitness program. This program has helped thousands of people improve their ability to remember everyday issues like where the car is parked, as well as the more important ability to think fast and maintain a healthy brain for life. Based on Dr. Small's recent scientific discoveries, The Memory Bible can immediately improve your mental performance by helping you make informed decisions on many of the lifestyle choices that directly affect the aging of our brains. Memory fitness is vital, and this book's program will improve your memory now and help keep your brain young for years to come.
