Mind Games, The Aging Brain and How to Keep it Healthy is the book to get to find great brain exercises. The Associated Press published a story that shows how brain exercises can defer the onset of Alzheimer's disease. This book is a winner in that category. In addition, there is a wealth of information on how the brain works, how to find brain food, how to exercise the body and brain together. I loved it. I feel smarter already!Was this review helpful?
