Reviewed by Robert Rose for Readers' Favorite

I have people from every field and discipline on my radio show. They are brilliant and compassionate. They rewired their brains and now rewire others' brains. Nicky Van Valkenburgh does this in Train Your Brain, Transform Your Life. Her book will do major rewiring of your brain.

Nicky begins with why she began ALERT training to deal with ADHD. She then gives you the many reasons why it works, based on her thorough research and the history of how the program evolved. It is a manual to guide you through your own struggle with ADHD and similar problems. Parents, teachers, and employers dealing with those with ADHD symptoms will find effective answers.

Teachers can use the ALERT program for themselves. For their ADHD students, Nicky explains how it can be used with different programs to deal with different Sensory Motor Rhythms. Her book is organized perfectly with a blend of scientific explanations, charts, and personal letters that keep you interested and engaged. It is a teaching and learning tool written by a fine writer. It does everything she promises for ADHD people, but it has potential for anyone who wishes to learn how to consciously go into the proper brain wave pattern to meet specific needs.
