    great little book! brings people together in a positive way and that is what makes brains 'take off'

    in my modest opinion, social interaction has been the best brain enhancer for me.. whether it is just sharing what this little book is about with your friend, boyfriend/girlfriend, spouse, child, sibling, parent-another human being-- or doing the the exercises with the other- is fun, loving, different- and does not fun, funny and loving make you happy? and happiness is a result of endorphins and endorphins are generated by the brain and generate well being? so easy to understand it is motivating..

    No Pain - Big Brain

    Keep Your Brain Alive with neurobic exercises reminded me of that which I learned through physical exercising years ago; if its fun, its easy to stick with and it works. Without the day to day stimuli I encountered as a younger person, I enjoy and notice the acuity difference I derive from these simple and productive tasks. And, it comforts me to know that I have some control over my aging mind. I've told my friends, its a book for boomers for sure.

    Easy to do Exercises With Great Results

    Keep Your Brain Alive is very easy to read.The neurobic exercises are fun.I thought they would interfere with my usually hectic day but far from it.The science is also easy to understand and very logical. It's encouraging to think I can actually do something to help keep my mind fit as I move along in years. I believe this book is important. That's why I'm taking the time to comment on it.It is something we boomers can do,pardon the pun,without thinking about it

    Exactly What I Was Looking For: Specific Ways To Prevent Memory Loss

    This is a quick-read but very interesting and practical. The gist of the book is to improve memory, you need to keep your brain active and use all of your senses. ¿Routines can be brain deadening.¿ Basically, learn to enjoy new experiences, change things around, interact with people and change up routines.

    The most startling thing I learned from reading this book is: "Research has shown that watching television literally numbs the mind: The brain is less active during TV-viewing than during sleep!" (p. 117)

    Keeps your mind busy

    This book was bought as a gift for my husband at Christmas. He isn't usually much on puzzles, quizzes, suduko, etc. He has found that this book of "brain tests/teasers" is quite interesting. Great for keeping the mind active and in tune.

    returned unread

    After a brief scan of the beek I knew it was not at all what I had hoped for and returned it. Recommend that you take a peak before you purchase.

    Extremely useful and fun to read

    I ran across this little book in the process of studying some related material and I can't get over how user-friendly it is, as well as containing a wealth of information and concrete suggestions for stimulating your brain and nervous system. The "neurobic exercises" are fun and very easy to integrate into any lifestyle.

    I would highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to improve their memory and mental focus, and reduce their risk of developing age-related mental deficits. In fact, I plan to give copies of it to several of my loved ones.
