Praise for Sondra Kornblatt's Brain Fitness for Women:
“A must read. This book busts all the myths about the brain (e.g. memory is supposed to fail as you get older) and replaces them with solid science, great humor, and a completely accessible writing style that will keep you reading from beginning to end."
—Christiane Northrup, MD, ob/gyn physician and author of the New York Times bestsellers Women's Bodies, Women's Wisdom and The Wisdom of Menopause
“Once again, health writer Sondra Kornblatt's magic transforms rather dry (although important) information about my brain I'm truly glad I now know into juicy, humorous, and practical everyday guidance. She scoops up scientific facts and figures and shapes them into common language that talks relevance and clarity. If you want to know how to take better care of your beautiful brain, I highly recommend Brain Fitness for Women.”
