“One of the more toxic ideas spread by modern culture is that the brain is static from birth to death,” the authors—Ilchi Lee and Jessie Jones—write. “However, as cutting-edge brain science is showing us, such decay is, for the most part, optional. It can be staved off or minimized with the proper actions.”
Readers will benefit from tips and techniques that will allow them to improve their attention and concentration, expand their imagination and creativity, develop their energy and strength, manage their stress effectively, and gain inspiration for a positive mature identity.
