Title: Future brain. The 12 keys to create your high performance brain

Author: Dr Jenny Brockis

Publisher: John Wiley and Sons 

Reviewer: Helen Reeves

What was it like?

Future brain is a page turning book that sets out to expand your brains ability to think well under stressful situations. It also aims to enable the reader to get more out of their days, to become more innovative and creative and to prepare the reader for future challenges. It is written by Dr Jenny Brockis who is a medical practitioner, healthy brain advocate and future mind planner.

What were the highlights?

Future brain is set out into three parts, which are then broken down into 12 key chapters. The parts are creating a high performance brain, operating high performance brain and integrating a high performance brain. I particularly like key point 6 mindset: does you attitude suck? It reminds the reader to not be deceived by appearances and to focus on what actually matters and not by what you may find personally appealing. I also like how the focus is on how organisations should build brain awareness about mindset to teach staff how to empower themselves. Avoiding micromanagement and enabling staff to develop in a supportive, productive, innovative environment, this will change how I lead and manage staff.

Strengths & Weaknesses?

The set out of future brain is logical. How can you operate a high performance brain if you haven’t created one. The first part focuses on the areas that we all need to focus on in getting the most out of our brains, healthy eating, sleeping, exercising and flexing our mental muscles. Only by doing this can we then begin to operate our brains and begin to deal with stress in our every day lives. Dr Jenny Brockis also identifies that this book is only a framework that you may or may not choose to incorporate.

Who should read it?

Future brain is well suited to any individual who wants to get the best use out of their brain. It is a useful book for any individual who finds stressful situations difficult to deal with and would be a key text for managers and leaders who are wanting to get the best out of their workforce.
