Publisher's Summary

Over the last 2,000 years, our understanding of how the human body works, why it works, and how to fix it when it stops working has come a long way. Much of this understanding has come on in great leaps in the last hundred or so years. Medical science and the more recent branches of medicine, like psychology, have all contributed to a whole new understanding of how our bodies work and the ways in which our internal organs function.
Until recently, however, one organ and its functions remained elusive: the brain. Whether your brain can be repaired or not really depends on the scientific stance that you take. However, there is more and more evidence that mental and physical stimulation can result in better memory, concentration, and speed at completing tasks. That means that there is every reason to keep your brain active by training it in different ways.
As humans, we've used these amazing "supercomputers" to get us to the moon and beyond, but back here on Earth, just how those organs function is not fully understood. Advances in scanning technology have begun to change all that, although it's still in the very early days as far as understanding the complexities of the human brain. One surprising find in recent years has been the discovery of a new concept known as neuroplasticity - in layman's terms, the plastic nature of the brain!

Great ideas

I thought this was a great little audiobook. Almost like a workbook. Right up my alley as far as brevity and skipping over boring stats and studies. A touch of common sense needed as far as which exercises and suggestions to try out. Just as no one supplement is good for every person the same goes for some of these suggestions. I would like this in print so it would be easier to refer back to, plus for my brain seeing and hearing is better.
I was gifted this audio book in exchange for an honest review.
