Publisher's Summary

These fun and easy exercises from the best-selling Keep Your Brain Alive fight the effects of mental aging and keep the mind fit to meet any challenge. And now they are available on audio. Co-author Manning Rubin is your personal trainer, providing lively narration to guide you through the exercises.

Drawing on cutting-edge neurological research, here is a regimen of mental cross-training - neurobics - that can be done anywhere, by anyone, at any time of day. The premise is simple: When you exercise the brain, you release natural growth factors called neurotrophins, which in turn enhance the brain's level of fitness. And nothing so easily stimulates the brain as breaking routines and using the five senses in new and unexpected ways. So if you're right-handed, wake up tomorrow and brush your teeth with your left hand. Or close your eyes before you get into the car and then get the key into the ignition. Every time you open a new circuit in your brain, it's like doing a round of mental sit-ups, without the pain.

    "Good"

    Since the book has been around for a while I already knew a lot of the things he mentions in it. So, it was an ok book but with nothing new from what we have already heard about the brain.

    "Terrible, deceiving description. A poor book."

    I purchased this book looking for answers on how to improve memory. Well, for two hours I listened to some guy repeating the same thing over and over. Really, this book shouldn't be more than 30 minutes.
