    The good, the bad, and the ugly.

    No doubt this book has become popular because its author is the chief content advisor for the popular Dr. Phil show. Having said that, the book is designed to offer advice for improving the overall brain function of kids that are struggling with learning disabilities, poor grades and the like. To meet this goal,the book explores several interesting areas: the negative effects of environmental toxins, meditation and breathing techniques, sleep, and exercises to strengthen the mind and body. Case studies are also included. A not too long book, the bottom line is that some suggestions might be beneficial, while others a bit off the beaten path.

    Some interesting ideas here...

    An interesting look at ways to enhance cognitive potential and performance. Written in an informal, conversational style, the author proposes that our brains are truly malleable, and offers suggestions on how we might alter and enhance our thought patterns, creativity, and learning potential. The book appears to be geared more toward the adult reader rather than toward increasing the potential (IQ) of kids. Yet, overall an interesting read. Another great book on this topic which is geared more toward the early cognitive development of infants and children is Magic Trees of the Mind by Marian Diamond and Janet Hopson.
