Making a Good Brain Great: The Amen Clinic Program for Achieving and Sustaining Optimal Mental Performance Making a Good Brain Great: The Amen Clinic Program for Achieving and Sustaining Optimal Mental Performance

by Daniel G. Amen, M.D.

Book Reviews

"This book is wonderful. It gives the reader great understanding and hope that changes in oneself can be made. If you put these changes into action, a happy and healthy brain is yours."
--Bill Cosby

"Each of Daniel Amenís books contains special nuggets that can be found nowhere else, as well as a wealth of useful, general information that he brings together under one roof. This book offers excellent advice as well as a great deal of new information. An extremely useful and easy-to-read book."
--Edward Hallowell, M.D., author of Delivered from Distraction and The Childhood Roots of Adult Happiness

"Making a Good Brain Great is the long-awaited synthesis of a true visionaryís work. I highly recommend it to anyone interested in self-improvement, and especially parents and other caregivers of children -- this book is a gem for those of us who want to raise healthy kids."
--Michael Gurian, author of The Minds of Boys and The Wonder of Girls

"The most important gift we have to share is wisdom. In this timely book, Dr. Amen shows us how to create a great brain so we can make the world a better place."
--Dharma Singh Khalsa, M.D., president/medical director of the Alzheimerís Prevention Foundation, and author of The Better Memory Kit and The End of Karma

"A must-read for those who live by their wits."
--Dennis B. Alters, M.D., child, adolescent, and adult psychiatry, and author of Wizardís Way

"As a colleague and advocate of Dr. Amen's work for the past ten years, I strongly urge the American community to grab this book, read it, and then pass it on. This is Dr. Amen at his peak: easy to read, follow, and apply."
--Robert G. Kohn, D.O., neurology-psychiatry

"Dr. Amen is leading the mental health disciplines, and perhaps the greater society, into a new era of understanding the relationship between brain functioning and our human experience."
--Bart Main, M.D., child and adolescent psychiatry

"Because of Dr. Amen's very timely emphasis upon proactive, protective care of brain development from birth to age 25, this book is a must-read for parents and grandparents!"
--J. Michael Uszler, M.D., assistant clinical professor of molecular and medical pharmacology, UCLA

"Making a Good Brain Great will help you find optimum functioning through proven steps to help your brain realize its fullest potential. Dr. Amen is not only a gifted and brilliant physician, he is a doctor with the passion to help each patient live life to the fullest of their capabilities. I recommend buying copies of this book for family members and friends to help them on their journey of change and transformation!"
--Earl R. Henslin, Psy.D., B.C.E.T.S.

"Once again Dr. Amen has taken information from multiple sources and put it together in a unique way. This allows clinicians and the general public a way of viewing themselves in a positive rather than judgmental light. Bringing together brain chemistry, diet, exercise, healthful living, and medications when needed is just the right combination. It allows the patient to participate in his or her own health care."
--Mark Kosins, M.D., psychiatrist and assistant clinical professor, UC-Irvine

"Daniel Amen, M.D., is a unique communicator, and each of his books builds from his ever-growing knowledge base. Making a Good Brain Great is a gift to the public and to clinicians alike. Wide-ranging aspects of brain science, cognitive studies, psychopharmacology, and nutrition, integrated with his visionary clinical observations -- Dr. Amen lays it all out clearly."
--Thomas M. Brod, M.D., D.F.A.P.A., associate clinical professor of psychiatry, UCLA

"Amen's best book so far for the general public, Making a Good Brain Great keeps readers in awe of the brain's complexity while making simple truths about its proper care and handling seem self evident. He remains at the cutting edge of bringing brain science into the psychiatrist's office as well as interpreting this science for the rest of us."
--Timmen L. Cermak, M.D., author of Marijuana: What's a Parent to Believe
