Neuropsychologist Koltuska-Haskin's illuminating debut delineates the elements of neuropsychology and provides a practical model for improving brain health and function.

Two self-help books in one, the first half of this thorough guide touches on the history of clinical neuropsychology, effective evaluation methods, and the importance of a neuropsychological evaluation.

Koltuska-Haskin clearly explains the stages of a neuropsychological evaluation, taking into account differing circumstances. Technical procedures are outlined in unobtrusive detail. The trickier aspects of medical care, such as insurance and the privacy of medical records under HIPAA, is explained.

The second half of the book offers a variety of holistic methods for boosting brain health with a healthy diet, sleep, exercise, meditation, and other practices.

The award of Distinguished Favorite in the Health and Fitness category in the 2021 NYC Big Book Award is a tribute to the book’s achievement in combining a wide range of knowledge essential for optimal brain function with practical advice based on the author’s many years experience as one of the nation’s leading neuropsychologists.
