New or Used: $18.00
The massive success of Suduko and other puzzle books proves that there is a huge market for logic tests out there, but the "The 10 Minute Brain Workout" offers a fresh, new brain-training angle. "The 10 Minute Brain Workout" concentrates on graduated training rather than straightforward puzzles. Publication timed to coincide with a GBP 2m UK marketing campaign for the new Nintendo How Old Is Your Brain? mental agility training computer game, which has sold over 2 million copies in Japan. It includes contributions from Gareth Moore, the holder of a Cambridge University PhD in machine intelligence, and author of "The Book of Japanese Puzzles", "The Book of Kakuro" and "The Book of Hanjie". Do you find yourself struggling to remember phone numbers? What about your car registration, the security code for the office door or your credit card pin? Do you find your concentration wandering after a few minutes during meetings? What about losing mental focus in mid-afternoon, the dread of reading a complex document or the horror of holiday currency conversions? What you need to do is to train your brain, sharpen up your mental reflexes and get those synapses snapping like firecrackers. "The 10-Minute Brain Workout" is a structured programme of logic tests, verbal reasoning and problem-solving exercises that have been shown to increase the flow of blood to the brain, boosting the supply of oxygen and amino acids to the prefrontal cortex. The book's informative introduction explains exactly how cognitive functions such as attention, memory, language, visual and spatial awareness can all be simply and quicky stimulated, and what difference this can make to your everyday life. This series of mind-stretching challenges, including tailor-made examples of Sudoku and Kakuro, become increasingly difficult the further you progress in the programme, so that maximum impact is guaranteed. Remember, your grey matter is no different to your sixpack - it needs to be drilled back into shape every now and then, and "The 10 Minute Brain Workout" is the perfect way to tone up that thinking muscle!
