Guest Review by my mom :)
The Rough Guide book of Brain Training offers 100 days to a smarter you. It gives you a plan, and guides you through the daily workouts, test workouts, and provides ways to keep track of your progress throughout the book. A 15 - 20 minutes/day time commitment to this program promises to restore brain power. I find that I tend to avoid the workouts that would likely improve my brain elasticity, but the book keeps me on track. Also, every few pages there are encouraging tips and tools you can use to improve how your brain functions. This book holds appeal for teens through to the elderly.
Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a copy of this book to review.
