We all want a better brain, a stronger brain, a healthier brain, the best brain that our brain can be. Better With Age: The Ultimate Guide to Brain Training by Phyllis Strupp is about how to get that brain you have been searching for.
Better With Age is a small 184 page book divided into theory and practice. The first few chapters educate you on your brain and what it is capable of doing. While the rest of it guides you through with lists, worksheets and stories.
I was excited to read this book because I am like most other people and want to find a way to improve my brain. The information was simple to understand, so I didn’t feel intimidated by what I was reading. The workings of neurons and synapses were easy to understand, but as I kept reading, I found myself becoming bored with the content.
I believe it is because I went into the book excited about all the ways I could train my brain, and felt like I got to much theory when all I really wanted was practice. And when I got to the practice part, I was a little disappointed. I thought the book ran through that part fairly quickly, not allowing me to completely understand what I was supposed to do, other then picking something from the list and doing it.
The book was filled with beautiful graphics that helped visualize the brain theory along the way; however, I would suggest that if you were going to purchase this book that you would do so in a hard copy. There are worksheets and you will find yourself wanting to flip back and forth several times, which makes this difficult when you are reading it in ebook format.
