Just as a person’s physical fitness can be improved by regular exercise such as running or swimming, so can their mental faculties. By completing logic puzzles, crosswords and memory tests, a person can noticeably remember more, think faster and combat the slowing effects of age on the human brain. Improve Your Brain Power is for anyone who has ever had trouble remembering names and faces or forgets what they came for when they walk into a room.
Beginning with an introduction to the higher processes of the brain, the introduction provides some useful general exercises to limber up the mind, and explains the reasoning behind the exercises that follow. The main body of the book features five sections, covering Memory Puzzles, Word Puzzles, Spatial Puzzles, Pattern Recognition and Logical/Mathematical Reasoning. Within each section, an introduction explains the basic principles behind answering each type of puzzle question, before introducing four sections of 20 questions each, in increasing order of difficulty.
Highly visual and extremely colourful, the book contains hundreds of full-colour puzzles, along with many other illustrative features. A section at the back of the book gives answers to every puzzle. Eclectic, fun and inspirational, Improve Your Brain Power will educate, enthrall and infuriate in equal measure, and will provide a framework for puzzle lovers everywhere to maximise their mental potential.
