The Mammoth Book of Fun Brain Training

Robinson, 2011

Traditional brain-training programmes tend to include a range of tasks which few of us would classify as 'fun', such as completing sheets of maths equations or remembering long lists of objects. Whilst these can certainly help to improve brain function, most of us would avoid such exercises so would not benefit from them.

The Mammoth Book of Fun Brain-Training changes all that with an approach centred on fun, which nevertheless improves memory, logic and reasoning, visual and spatial awareness, word and language skills and maths skills. It contains nothing which smacks of 'school work'. Instead there are 'challenge' puzzles, often with a twist, which are both more entertaining and more effective from a brain-training point of view in that they call on multiple skills concurrently.

  • "A real brain teaser and well worth the effort to keep the old grey matter active. Having a programme per day is very good and keeps you on track. I recommend this to anyone heading towards their later years."
