Description - That Memory Book by Cathryn Jakobson Ramin

There was no way around it. Something was happening to my mind, and everywhere I went I noticed that people's conversations had begun to resemble games of charades, where all they could muster were fractional notions of what they wanted to say - "sounds like ...starts with ...three syllables."' Forgetfulness can be frustrating and unnerving, so with this issue weighing heavily on her mind, investigative journalist Cathryn Jakobson Ramin sets out to discover what midlife forgetfulness is all about. By identifying the most up-to-date options available to combat your increasingly unreliable memory, and then assessing them by trying each one herself, Cathryn Jakobson Ramin determines the benefits and drawbacks of each approach. She consults experts around the world in the fields of sleep, stress, traumatic brain injury, hormones, genetics and dementia, as well as specialists in nutrition, cognitive psychology and the burgeoning field of drug-based cognitive enhancement. Written with compassion and humour, Cathryn Jakobson Ramin's The Memory Book is a groundbreaking, timely and highly readable narrative, a much-anticipated book for anyone who recognises that their memory is not what it used to be and wants to do something about it.
