Taking care of your brain is just as beneficial as taking care of the rest of your body. Research has shown that training games help improve memory, concentration, problem-solving skills, processing speed, creativity, and reasoning.

The key to such exercise is to constantly learn and regularly challenge your brain’s capabilities with new tasks. Regularly doing series of short, varied tasks will keep your thinking faculties focused and flexible.

Five-Minute Brain Workout contains a wide variety of games and puzzles for people who enjoy words and language. There are ten examples of the same kind of game or puzzle with a wide variety of types of each. While the puzzles have specific answers, the games do not, which means you can continue to develop your creativity by doing them more than once and coming up with different answers. And there are enough puzzles and games for a year’s worth of challenging your mind.

The book’s contents can be used in any number of ways: to challenge yourself or simply have fun or as a competition against time or other people. These exercises work in many settings: home, work, schoolrooms, training and therapy sessions, and as an icebreaker at social gatherings.

Women’s conversations can cover a wide range of topics and may include much in the way of intelligent observations on life’s complexities, entertaining observations, and a sharing of innermost thoughts.  While conversation in mixed company can range along the same lines, there are many subjects that women feel more comfortable discussing among themselves in a mutually encouraging and supportive environment.

 - the business world at all levels
 - local, national, and international politics

Written by an award-winning communications expert, the book also offers a host of speaking tips and techniques to help women of all ages develop and enhance their conversation skills in terms of organizing thoughts and responses, appropriate modes of expression, and developing listening skills.

Grandparents often find themselves in awkward positions when it comes to having conversations with their family. Once children become “little people,” they develop likes and dislikes and discover their own interests, all of which may often be at odds with the grandparent’s. Even the most innocent attempt at chatting can produce such conversation-stoppers as “I dunno,” “whatever!” or “who cares!” Similarly, when a grandparent tries to initiate a talk to his or her own children about grandkids’ behavior or activities, it is usually met with a stony disapproving silence or a curt “mind your own business.” And when sets of grandparents get together, the opportunities to criticize each other for spoiling or favoring one of the grandchildren—or the parent whom your child married—can become a prescription for disaster.

Fortunately for the growing population of intergenerational family members, help is here in this very practical handbook for seniors who babysit, visit or vacation with, or otherwise spend time with youngsters. Among the topics included are creating safe and friendly environments in which to initiate a chat, selecting age-appropriate conversation openers, avoiding sensitive issues, and developing listening as well as speaking skills. Subjects for conversations include family history, favorite activities, uncritical advice, and hopes and dreams for the future.

Although aimed at grandparents, this latest volume in the author’s Conversation Starters series is an essential guide for parents and children as well.
