The book is about training your brain through basic daily exercises, such as memorizing words, saying colors out loud, counting and so on.

I didn't try it so I can't really comment about it.
While reading, I was thinking about IQ test, and video games, or even reading. It might be as effective, maybe more, to challenge your brain.
I think one key is diversity, curiosity, and challenge. Our brain doesn't like to stay in "sleeping mode".
