This work is fabulous. I have the basic book Brain Gym and got this for more detail. These exercises helped my son go from having a full melt down every time he had to write a school paper in 4th grade to getting straight A's since 6th grade with out my help and no longer struggles with writing. He's now a Jr. in high school.

I have been familiar with Brain Gyms created by Paul and Gail Dennison for over a decade and found the exercises useful. It means even more to understand more about Paul and how he began searching for useful solutions for clearing energy to assist in learning and relaxing. I used to take Brain Gyms for Business with me when I was a mobile DJ. I would do several of the movements before I started a show. I was ultimately more relaxed and had the sense of a clearer mind. Sometimes it is difficult to think of a string of songs to play together, but then you have to locate which CD to find a song. I was able to be more calm even when in a hurry. Tips were also better after I began using the brain gyms.

I am excited to read this book. I have been introduced to some of the material. It is fascinating.

The book provides great insight into things involved in learning that we don't often recognize. I'm only part-way through the book but am very glad I'm reading it.

This book is superb. As a clinician, I am finding it very explanatory on a scientific level, yet fully understandable for lay people as well. I am so excited about the information that it contains, that I am sharing it with friends, family, fellow parents, and patients in my chronic pain practice, with success.

Wow!! What an amazing concept. More businesses, schools, daycares, nursing homes, etc. should apply this concept!!

Paul Dennison describes the moment in fourth grade where a teacher grabs his shoulders and yelled, "Why can't you learn." "From my hurt emerged my work, my message, and my mission: to bring to the world community a new way to educate our children so that they can learn without failure." Mr. Dennison became "skilled in teaching reading, and opened a chain of eight reading centers." "What I came to realize is that, for educators, effective teaching isn't about presenting the information and letting the student passively take it in, but about connecting the information to the movement of the body in an active way."

Dennison was amazed with the results of adding movement to his program. Suddenly he could see students reading more comfortably. Parents commented they could see changes in their child.

It takes more than mental skill, but also physical abilities to be a good reader. Good reading can't happen without a whole set of physical abilities:

Binocularity
Convergence
Tracking
Sustained attention and concentration
Directionality and motor planning
Hearing and matching graphemes and phonemes
Thinking
Memory of sounds and shapes
Visualization of letter patterns and word shapes
Eye-hand coordination
Timing, rhythm, and phrasing of speech patterns

"Brain Gym and Me" by Paul E. Dennison is well written. The information is presented in an easy-to-understand format. As a former Reading Coach I'm impressed with his concept. I had similar experiences in elementary school. My eyes did not work together. I became discouraged, my grades were horrible and I quite trying. Only after years of frustration did I realize I could learn. My self-confidence increased and I continued on to assist students in their reading abilities. This book should be mandatory reading for all educators. I have already contacted several teachers and suggested they add, "Brain Gym and Me" to their reading list. Mr. Dennison has returned the pleasure to learning. Well done.

Received book free of charge.
