Simple guide to keeping our marbles

Book Review: Don’t miss the bus!

Author: Reg Lipman

This simple book creeps up on you. It packs a punch using everyday language, cartoons and easy-to-read tables to get the message across – there are things you can do to avoid ‘missing the bus’.

In “Don’t miss the bus” Reg Lipman takes us through scientific discoveries about the mind/body connection and brain plasticity, to demonstrate that by changing our habits we can reduce the likelihood of loosing our marbles or at the least delay it.

I’m amazed this book has not made more impact. Self-published, it does  not have the promotion machine of a publishing house behind it – a surprise, as it warrants it. Reg Lipman, who passed away in 2015, had great credentials to write this book. He had succeeded in many fields including the military, banking, writing, breeding horses and establishing a travel company. He must have been onto something!

The book, recommended by Alzheimer’s Australia, steps through the consequences of our daily decisions and provides straightforward ideas of how to tweak what we eat, how we exercise and how we use our brains to help ward off dementia, including Alzheimer’s.

Recommended for those reluctant to be defined by their age, the book can be bought through Alzheimer’s Australia
