Excerpt. Reprinted by permission. All rights reserved.:

Welcome to the first group of exercises. All exercises should be performed while seated. Do these until you have mastered them, and only then move on to the B group workout. Start each movement by sitting up tall, without leaning back against the chair. Each repetition should be big and long. Remember to rest when you are fatigued, and never get discouraged if you cannot complete the entire workout. Enjoy the new movement and stimulation your brain gets from this great workout.
