First, it shows you how your brain works—explaining how memories are stored and recalled, for instance, and how different parts of your brain have different functions. It then gives you practical advice and a whole range of exercises to improve memory and mental agility and keep your brain working to its maximum potential. The book includes mental exercises and activities, featuring challenges from logic puzzles and visual reasoning to language learning and sensory exercises, stimulating as many parts of the brain as possible. As well as mental stimulation, the book highlights the role and importance of sleep, a healthy diet, and physical exercise. An agile, healthy brain is not only less prone to age-related decline, it can also conquer stress, anxiety, and the risk of depression.
