Through out the book it mentions Alzheimers and similar concerns and repeatedly speaks about not being concerned about particular memory lapses as you grow older.It does have thorough coverage of memory myths and how some of these myths create or contribute memory problems as well as the best coverage of diet, medicine, supplements and similar factors of any of the memory books that I have read.This is a workbook with many excercises to prove their points as well as show how various techniques work and how storing and retrieving memories works in the mind.If I were asked who I would recommend this book to then it would have to be people in one of two groups. First would be anyone who is aging and thinks that they are having memory lapses more often and are concerned about them. Second would be those who want to know what drugs, nutritional supplements and dietary factors may increase or harm their mental capacities. 0 Help other customers find the most helpful reviews Was this review helpful to you? | Comment Reply 67 of 68 people found the following review helpful The Memory Workbook provides a comprehensive and fun program for memory improvement, September 22, 2002 By A Customer This review is from: The Memory Workbook: Breakthrough Techniques to Exercise Your Brain and Improve Your Memory (Paperback) The Memory Workbook provides a comprehensive program designed to help rewire the mental habits that interfere with memory functioning.
