Reviews

Pounding heart? Sweaty limbs? This Harvard Medical School professor (A User's Guide to the Brain) provides proof that exercise makes us smarter. Copyright 2007 Reed Business Information.

"This is my self-help book for the season."--Houston Chronicle

"I enthusiastically recommend this book...If your goal is to live a long and healthy life to the fullest then Spark should be required reading."--Kenneth H. Cooper, M.D., M.P.H., "Father of Aerobics"
"Ratey has culled the latest science and found that a regular workout can help build a better, faster brain."--USA Today
"At last a book that explains to me why I feel so much better if I run in the morning!"--Dr. Susan M. Love, author of Dr. Susan Love's Menopause and Hormone Book and Dr. Susan Love's Breast Book
