Description - The Mammoth Book Of Brain Games by Dr Gareth Moore

An entertaining and comprehensive program that helps counteract cognitive decline and build new brain skills in just a few minutes each day. Avoiding tedious rote tasks, it includes a wide variety of challenges and each page focuses on a particular skill: creative thinking; memory improvement; word and language skills; number skills; logic and reasoning; and visual and spatial awareness.

A 'cognitive scoring' system helps to keep track of progress. As we get older we must take special care of our brains, just as we know we should look after our bodies. Considerable scientific evidence proves that an active mind is a healthy mind, and challenging your grey matter with a wide range of experiences and conundrums is key to keeping away the mental cobwebs. The Mammoth Book of Brain Games provides an entertaining and comprehensive program that not only helps counteract cognitive decline but also builds new brain skills. Avoiding the turgid and repetitive rote tasks of other books, the book is packed from cover to cover with varied challenges that strike a careful balance between familiarity and novelty. Tasks built around popular puzzle types such as crosswords, code words and word searches extend these popular paradigms to tempt even the most set-in-their-ways reader to experiment and push themselves to try new things. Regular 'rethinking' pages challenge readers to take the tasks outside the book and make better use of their brains in their daily lives.
