4.0 out of 5 stars Stop and Think! 16 July 2014
By Duncurin VINE VOICE
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
Not a bad read. I liked the semi-clinical approach and how the authors caught a nice balance between crunching the numbers and the more touchy-feely stuff that of course means that our wonderful brains – each and every one of them – is the most amazing thing yet seen in Creation.
I wonder however how many of us stop to think just what amazing ‘processing power’ we have been given and it never ceases to surprise me how many people of all ages seek to drown it in sugar, prod it with massive doses of caffeine, drown it in alcohol, suppress it with powerful pain killers or subvert it completely with ever more exotic drugs that are readily available on the street. This is not confined to one particular group or age and some years ago I remember the little old lady who was selling her temazepam in order to augment her pension, and I dread to think, given this, what others get up to!
Having said that, this book is an excellent read and as above I liked the way it dealt with our brain’s sheer ability to process information on the one hand and then discussed the ways in which we can feed it and protect it as well as some discussion on its more ‘fuzzy’ logic that is particularly powerful and, of course, only something that computer programmers can yet dream of.
So, the next time we are about to marvel at the next desktop computer or the sheer processing power of that tablet or maybe the touch-screen in a new motor car – perhaps we all should stop and think about the sheer miracle that lives, pulsating smoothly at a steady 40watts, right between our ears. Try this nice little book and wonder no more. With thanks.

5.0 out of 5 stars An interesting and positive book 3 Sep 2014
Format:Paperback
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and would highly recommend it.
Indeed I already have!
My husband, a stressed out and time-poor broker in the City, has just started to read it and I look forward to his opinion on it coming from his perspective. I have just also recommended it to my newly retired father in the hope he will take on board some of the advice for protecting the brain, senility etc, by 'exercise'.
'Sort your brain out' really does seem to have something for everyone, wherever they are in their life.
From my perspective; as a self-employed home-based worker and mother of 3 young children struggling on being everything to everyone personally and professionally, who has a Post-Grad qualification yet cannot in the last couple of years even finish reading an entire chapter of a novel, found the easy-to-read format and punchy chapters manageable and was able to read a chapter per night. I too am trying to use some of the advice to improve my brain function.
Overall, an interesting and positive book one can only gain from by reading.

By Lilyfae
Format:Paperback|Vine Customer Review of Free Product (What's this?)
The four stars here are mostly for the layman's description of brain plasticity which is a concept that society is keen to ignore 'can't teach an old dog new tricks', 'i'm **** at maths' and 'I can't get myself out of this situation' etc whilst actually embracing it has the potential to enrich our lives, but as many things requires effort, which we are too 'busy' to put in.

I had been extolling brain plasticity for years as a teacher, and it was one of the reasons I got quantitive and qualitative results particularly with under performing (labelled 'naughty') boys, but it hasn't really hit the mainstream in education, nor the wider world. Once we realise that we can change and we aren't a sum of early labels there is little that we cannot accomplish- sounds very LA-LA let's hug and teach the world to sing, but it is there if we put the effort in to change.

Otherwise this book is a mishmash of common sense tied up with a neurological explanation-
Sugar is bad for you, don't take your kids Ritalin to make it through the day at work (duh), get enough sleep, drink water, keep your mind and body active- it reads like a diet or 'change your life in 30 minutes' magazine article!
That's what is a bit dissatisfying about the book, I think the author could've gone deeper without scaring the reader with too much academics.

I wasn't really inspired by this book as much as I have been about other similar books, however very interesting was the authors attitude to coffee which is very interesting and enlightening from a cognitive decline perspective.

Overall, a good reminder of common sense and a brilliant explanation of brain plasticity, I think it got a bit jumbled and light after that. I would've preferred he stick with brain plasticity and perhaps talked about research findings and or methods to really develop that rather than the general treatment of the brain.

Format:Paperback
This book has achieved something truly remarkable - it has captured the essence of the latest scientific research into how our brain's work and packaged it into a fast-paced and breezy read that will enable people to quickly grasp what they need to do to get more out of their own brain.

It's cheerful overtones probably wouldn't appeal to hardcore scientists or even regular readers of popular science, but i suspect that's the whole point. It avoids using potentially intimidating scientific jargon and keeps it lighthearted, keeping it accessible to everyone else.

I wholeheartedly recommend this as a great and important read. Looking forward to Sort Your Brain Out 2. Are they writing one? They really should!
