"Finally a book that debunks IQ as the biggest key to success. Tracy and Ross Alloway have identified the single most important skill for determining a person's success in our modern world. The fun and friendly exercises in the book bring it out in you. A must for anyone who wants to unleash inner genius." (Dave Farrow, Two Time Guinness record Holder for Greatest Memory)
“A valuable guide for readers looking to put their minds to work.” (Publishers Weekly)
“Lucid…contains useful new insights into thinking well.” (Kirkus)
"The Working Memory Advantage is at its best—and its best is very good—when the Alloways provide exercises to stretch working memory...[they] make a compelling case that working memory can be strengthened through 'small but crucial tweaks in your daily habits.' It’s a lesson worth remembering." (Psychology Today)

Its really nice to see the different applications of working memory and the Alloway's studies that have shown not only when its important to utilize but also when its important to turn off such as in athletic applications.
All ages can benefit from this book in my opinion. The working memory advantage applied to the school system offers fantastic solutions to many of the challenges that our public education institutions face today.
The author's collective studies and experiences really shine through in the pages and their passion for the subject is extremely contagious. They are both on a mission to straight up help to inspire and lead positive change as we move forward and continue to unlock more mysteries of the brain.
I recommend this book to everyone and anyone who has a passion to learn more about the body, health, science, movement...all of life really!
