[en] intelligence ; working memory
[en] We are on the cusp of a new revolution in intelligence that affects every aspect of our lives from work and relationships, to our childhood, education, and old age. Working Memory, the ability to remember and mentally process information, is so important that without it we could not function as a society or as individuals. People with superior working memory tend to have better jobs, better relationships, and more happy and fulfilling lives. People with poor working memory struggle in their work, their personal lives, and are more likely to experience trouble with the law.

But there is exciting evidence emerging: working memory can be trained, and, as a result, we can change our circumstances. But what works and what doesn’t? And can all of us benefit from working memory training?

This book reviews cutting-edge scientific research and examines how working memory influences our lives, as well as the evidence on working memory training.
