Stories are good for the brain.

Story/Wikipedia.com
Welcome to Part 4 of my The Commander and the Chief thread, known more succinctly as CC. It follows anything related to ... you guessed it ... The Commander and the Chief series.

Today's topic is books, any books, and what's inside ... the story.  When engaged with a reader, ...

Stories are good for the brain.

Stories are nourishment for the mind, body, and soul. And scientific research backs up that claim. Evidence of positive effects on the brain includes heightened connectivity and neurological changes which are likened to the exercise of  "muscle memory"Brain function 'boosted for days after reading a novel' - Science - News - The Independent 


Throughout history, we've discovered ...

The Power of Story 

 ... as a way to remember who we are and explore what we can be. And such power is extolled in this clip below:


Also, some research suggest that for a book in print, we gain all these benefits:

1.  Increased intelligence
2.  Brain power boost
3.  Increased empathy
4.  Increased understanding of what is read
5.  Possible way to fight Alzheimer's disease
6.  Help in relaxation
7.  Help in getting to sleep
8.  Reading habit that is contagious to our neighbors

[reference:  8 Science-Backed Reasons to Read a (Real) Book | Real Simple ]

On the topic of the Power of the Story, I've crafted a novel in my latest eBook, His Tribe of One, the first in The Commander and the Chief series.  And now that story is available in paperback.


It can be purchased directly as a paperback on createspace.com

* His Tribe of One
 ( https://www.createspace.com/5464447 )

Or found in these links :

* amazon.com: His Tribe of One
(paperback and Kindle)

* Barnes and Noble: His Tribe of One
(paperback and Nook)


Also for more information, please feel free to check up on the website for the latest updates in the series:  S. K. Smith - The Commander and the Chief  at smithsk.com/cc.htm

Remember, reading is good for the brain - especially on paper, and I hope I have spun a good yarn that you would enjoy.

Your readership is appreciated!

Blessings .... S. K. Smith

Congratulations on your new novel.

The guy in that video is quite a preacher. He would make a flat rock interesting to more than a geologist. Now I know what's wrong with me, although I have edited a couple of books were other people, I haven't read a book in years. Hence, my brain is probably atrophying rapidly. Does reading short stories and articles count? I believe that I've read every short story and article in Playboy over the last 40 years. Does watching TV count? I am now averaging watching about 15 TV dramas every week and there isn't a single laugh track in any of them. Am I going brain dead? ;-)

I Google and Wikipedia a lot… Does that count?
