Brainfit is a great course of mental workouts to help you improve your skills to remember names, dates, places and many other things. The book offers a 9-week course with mental activities that focus on different themes. We all have some area we'd like to work on and this can help you do it. Another great book that comes at brain fitness from a different perspective is BrainFit For Life. This book goes beyond mental workouts to also detail brain healthy nutrition, physical exercise for the brain and how focus on optimal sleep helps improve memory and learning. Together these two books make a great pair.

When I read the title "Brainfit: 10 minutes a day for a sharper mind and memory", I immediately thought that this would be a book like "Train Your Brain". Unfortunately, it's not. The exercises are not really exercises and do not challenge you to get better. In other words, they are not a way to get a sharper memory with time. Tips like "Get an electronic calendar with reminder feature, such as Microsoft Outlook" (page 160) do not sound very inspiring or even sure in the books capability to help you in the long run. Plus, most of the exercises are based on fictitious activities that have little or no relevance to practical life.
I will, though, agree that the book has some interesting techniques on how to group information into blocks or even techniques on how to make information more memorable and easy to remember. But there was no need for a 320 pages book: a mere 10 page brochure would be enough.
If you are looking for ways to exercise your brain and concretely track your progress, buy "Train Your Brain". I've done 1 & 2 and was impressed by it. Not to mention that they are actually fun to work with.

Brainfit: 10 Minutes a Day for a Sharper Mind and Memory
A real page turner. Once you start, you can't stop. Even if you think your smart and mentally fit. This book shows you exercises that are great for retaining, cognitive, and other areas as we age need a little tweaking now and then. Definitely worth the time, effort, and investment. 5 stars!

It is rare that vitally important information is presented in such a fun,easy, and friendly style. Corinne Gediman's book, Brainfit, is a personal trainer for your brain. Not only will I enjoy making it part of my weekly fitness routine; I'll recommend it to my customers at the bookstore.

I found this book a great read. The information on memory is very interesting, and the exercises are easy, stimulating and effective. Following the program Gediman outlines really works.

This is a very good, WELL WRITTEN book about how we can exercise our brains for better memory. The book takes you from start to finish with good EXERCISES that focuses on WORKOUTS for short term, long term memory, and left side and right side brain workouts, that ANYONE can do. The goal is to improve our memory by the end of the book. To me it's very much worth buying.

This very book is so very useful. My mother, who has moderate dementia, uses this book nearly everyday and she can recall faster than before.
