SharpBrains is one of AARP’s Best Brain Fitness Books

We are honored to announce that AARP has included our very own book The SharpBrains Guide to Brain Fitness (182 pages; $14.95) in its new List of Best Books on Brain Fitness, which will be unveiled during AARP's upcoming Life@50 National Event. We hope this list will help many more individuals and institutions learn about our resource: given that 80% of respondents to a recent AARP survey selected "Staying Mentally Sharp" as their top priority, we certainly know there is a significant need for quality information!
