Medina explains the biology behind various discoveries in brain research using examples and analogies that make it easy for the casual reader to grasp and remember. As he presents each of the 12 principles, he offers practical applications that can be implemented personally in the home, workplace, or school. I found myself most intrigued with his recommendations in the areas of exercise, attention, memory, sleep and exploration. I tired of his sometimes lengthy evolutionary explanations for how our brains operate and react, but the main points--the "brain rules" themselves--gave me so much to absorb, process and implement, I'd read it again to get to the good stuff. In fact, I might read it again, just to take better notes. First goal upon finishing the book: commit to regular exercise to improve brain function.
