Teens Are Filling Up on Nutrition This Holiday Season: The Newly Released Book, "Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go! 50 Smart Ideas to Turbo-Charge Your Life," Published by Cognosco Learning and Written by Teen Author Alex Southmayd, Is Turbo-Charging Teens' Appetites

BOSTON, MA--(Marketwire - November 25, 2010) - With the proliferation of video games and texting, you might think that most teens would rather be caught dead than reading an actual book, but with teen depression, obesity, and drug and alcohol use growing across our country, many are seeking help to these insidious teen problems.

17-year-old Alex Southmayd has come to the rescue. A senior at Groton School, in Groton, Massachusetts, Southmayd has written a 190-page book for his fellow teens, "Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go! 50 Smart Ideas to Turbo-Charge Your Life."

These "brain snacks" are powerful tips and ideas to help teens through their everyday lives and tumultuous teenage years. As a teen himself, the author understands the pressures confronting teens today and jumps around covering all of them, from time management, acne, and obesity to improving SAT scores (the author nearly has perfect SAT scores himself), being proactive, and staying positive. As for references, Southmayd provides studies from groups like the AMA on how drugs and alcohol damage the teenage brain.

The "snacks" span 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.

Each Brain Snack is no more than four pages so it can be "digested" quickly (the paperback book can easily be carried in a backpack), and they're fun to read. These snacks can be read "on the go" whenever the reader has a spare few minutes.

The book is available in both paperback and Ebook format from and, (the Ebook can be downloaded to your Nook, Kindle, laptop, iPad, iPhone, iPod, or eReader).

These snacks are delicious and nutritious bits of information that will help teens become happier, healthier, and more successful in their lives and, ultimately, make the world a better place!

With the holidays coming, "Brain Snacks for Teens on the Go!" will make a great stocking stuffer for any teens in your life.
