    I loved this book!

    The authors belnded together (in eloquent prose) concepts, strategies and techniques to sharpen the mind. This book is not merely one to read, but a book to study and review periodically. It contains valuable information that one needs, and should know about the human brain. The authors did their research and it shows. They combined substance, style, and wit in presenting their information in a manner that makes the material 'unforgettable'. If you are looking for a gift that just about anyone can benefit from, this is it! It was a terrific gift I gave myself!

    Brain Exercises - Yow - I feel brighter already!

    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!
