From the Publisher
Annotation Dr. John Medina tackles the complex and undoubtedly important topic of the human brain in this easy-to-understand book. Taking a practical perspective and trying to identify solutions to the way our society has evolved institutions like work and school, Medina indentifies 12 "brain rules." Through these rules, he addresses everything from health to memory, offering just enough science (he draws on basic evolution, biology, and chemistry) to help readers understand how to help their brains work better. Here's a teaser for you: Brain rule number one is "Exercise boosts brain power." So get up and go!
