Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.   

More of us are living into our 80s than ever before - what if the best was yet to come? The best-selling author of The Organised Mind reveals the evolving power of the human brain through the ages.  

Recent studies show that our decision-making skills improve as we age, and that our happiness levels peak at age 82.   

Dr Daniel Levitin draws on cutting-edge research from neuroscience and psychology to demonstrate the cognitive benefits of getting older. He challenges the beliefs that surround the ageing process, including our assumptions around memory loss and our focus on lifespan instead of 'healthspan'.   

Packed with engaging interviews with individuals who have thrived far beyond the conventional age of retirement, this book offers a realistic plan full of practical, cognitive enhancing tricks for everyone to follow during each decade of their life.   

The Changing Mind is a radical exploration of what we all can learn from those who age joyously.

A life changing read

I first heard about Daniel when he was interviewed on the radio in the UK on a Sunday morning. Whilst the interviews were not the best, the points Daniel made and the way he made them, made me seek out of his book and jump right in!
This is a fascinating read, which will change the way you view the rest of your life. There are parts which are quite scientific and have gone over my head, but I am sure they will make more sense when I enjoy this book again.
Keep listening to the very end for a nice surprise!
Thank you Daniel, for a wonderful book l.

Fascinating and thought provoking

Excellent text but quite complex at times with a lot of medical and scientific jargon in places.
Still lots to get out of it though even if you are not trained in these areas.
Great to hear the scientific evidence that debunks a lot of popular views.
