Discover how to train your brain and become the best you can be in this empowering and inclusive guide by the nation's favourite doctor, Dr Ranj.
Brains don't look like much, do they? A touch of slime here, some squishy grey stuff there. But in fact, your brain is more powerful than any supercomputer, and it is completely fascinating. Have you ever wondered why you're left-handed? Or why you have dreams? Or what causes pins and needles?
I'll tell you what else: your brain is completely unique. That's right: no one else has a brain quite like yours.
So if you want to learn how to make the most of YOUR brain, this is the book for you. It doesn't just explain how the brain works. It'll teach you how to train your brain to get better at stuff you find difficult. It'll show you how different people think in different ways and why that makes each person so special. It'll help you keep your mind happy and healthy. Because when that brilliant brain of yours is in tip-top condition, you can be the BEST version of you.
