Nancy Linde is an expert on creating games that exercise the brain in the same way that a skilled trainer helps us exercise the body. The beauty of her puzzles is how they are created to target six key cognitive functions while providing fun for the solver. So here are the classic types - word puzzles, picture games, logic puzzles, tongue twisters, and trivia quizzes - making this a rich mixture of games sure to appeal to all ages. And with what amazing benefits: Here are games designed to stimulate long-term memory and games designed to flex working memory. Games for executive functioning, for attention to detail, for multitasking, and processing speed. In all, 299 games that you can take anywhere and turn even an idle moment, like standing in line or waiting at the doctor's office, into a completely entertaining (and healthy) workout interval for your brain.
