About Training Your Brain For Dummies eBook

In this book, I distill information into bite-sized chunks. I discuss a range of topics relevant to brain training, from computer games to what you should eat, even to what exercise is best for your brain, calling on cutting-edge science.

In some of the topics I draw from my own research expertise, and in other topics, I follow leading psychologists, scientists, and researchers in the field.

Each chapter deals with a different aspect of brain training, so by the time you get to the end of the book you have a complete picture of what you can do to boost your brainpower.

The strategies are simple, effective, and easy to fit into your busy lifestyle. You don’t have to make major changes to make a big difference.

Many of the tips and advice involve small changes that revolutionize your brain.

What You’re Not to Read

If you’ve read a For Dummies book before, then you may be familiar with its characteristic relaxed style. You don’t have to read this book from cover to cover to know what’s going on. In fact, don’t do that! Start with a section that you’re interested in, and read that.

Feel free to dip in and out of the chapters. As with all For Dummies books, the chapters are stand-alone so you can easily follow them without having to read the previous chapters.
