I received a free copy of this product from Baker Books Bloggers in exchange for writing a review.  All opinions are my own.

G has a family history of Alzheimer's, so I was drawn to this book for him:

I didn't expect to enjoy the book so much myself, though.

Written by a physician, this book combines biblical principles with modern brain science to not only help prevent the onset of Alzheimer's and dementia, but maintain and improve brain and body health for all of our lives.

The pages are filled with plenty of common wisdom about healthy living, but I appreciated how thorough the author was in explaining the reasons behind these suggestions. He backs up his assertions with plenty of scientific proof -- all written in easy-to-understand language.

Areas of life Dr. Jennings addresses include genes, weight, diet, exercise, sleep, the benefits of a sabbatical, among others.

He also gives an overview of risk factors for dementia, vitamins and supplements that can prevent it, and ways to cope if you're already caring for a loved one suffering from dementia or Alzheimer's Disease.

Its 282 pages deliver a great deal of helpful information, but it's a quick read and one I feel would benefit everyone (we are all aging, after all!) 

Even though this book is written from a Christian perspective, it does so in a natural way that that doesn't exclude readers outside the faith. Pick up a copy for yourself here and start living a more hopeful, healthy way forward!

Even if your personal experience with Alzheimer's Disease goes no farther than a viewing of The Notebook, you can benefit from these these simple, everyday actions to improve your life.
