This book helps you beef up your brain awareness so you can take advantage of the built–in features and native capabilities that make the human brain a truly awesome machine.
  • Reduce stress and avoid stress–related illnesses
  • Foster healthy thinking habits to boost efficiency
  • Build your expertise with renewed focus and stamina
  • Drive innovation through productive collaboration
A brain that can change, adapt, lead, and collaborate to operate with a high level of flexibility, agility, and creativity is a brain that will serve you well now and into the future. Future Brain turns neuroscience into actionable steps, helping you to train your brain to achieve high–performance in all areas of life.
