A Leading Boston Cardiologist Says the New Book "Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go!" Published by Cognosco Learning Can Assist Teens Navigate to Success(December 01, 2010)
BOSTON, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 12/01/10 -- Top Boston Cardiologist and Professor of Medicine at Tufts Medical School, Dr. Mark Estes, says that the newly released book "Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go! 50 Smart Ideas to Turbo-Charge Your Life," written by teen author Alex Southmayd, is "insightful." Dr. Estes goes on to say, "Safely and successfully navigating the teenage years on the journey to adulthood remains one of life's greatest challenges. There has been considerable progress in understanding the biological and neurophysiologic basis for the dynamic, physical and cognitive development during the teenage years. Yet teenagers, like the adults who care about them, commonly struggle to negotiate these tumultuous years. As a physician, parent, and former Chairman of the Board of a secondary school overseeing the education of 450 teenaged students, I have come to the humbling realization that proactive and positive guidance from peers is the best approach. It is evident that young people are the best teachers for their peers. In this respect, Alex Southmayd's 'Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go!' is on the mark as it represents insightful advice from a peer. The snacks should be savored as each provides practical and helpful tactics to prevent or solve common problems in the teenage years. The young author's sage advice is accompanied by recent research, vignettes, and timeless quotes that make the reading easy and enjoyable. His wit, humor and palatable style make the important messages stick to the reader's bones. 'Brain Snacks' should be considered essential nutrition to help all teens and concerned adults chart the best possible course to a life that really matters."
The 190-page book spans four major categories -- your brain, body, life, and world. A great deal of research went into the book and a bibliography is included if you want to look into any of the source material. The book has been endorsed by Sean Covey, author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens," and S.A.D.D.
The book is available in both paperback and Ebook formats from BarnesandNoble.com and Amazon.com (the Ebook can be downloaded to your Nook, Kindle, laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod, or eReader).
"Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go!" will make a great stocking stuffer for any teens in your life.
