What makes a genius and who are the ouststanding geniuses of all time? From where do the world's great mind games originate? How can you measure your own IQ and test your brain power? Tony Buzan provides the answers in this book. He is convinced that every one of us can unleash our own genius, so long as we realize that mental skills can be learned and that there is no limit to self-improvement. Buzan analyzes the lives and achievements of 100 geniuses who all excelled in their field - science, music, literature, art, politics, philosophy, and so on - comparing them with each other to produce surprising results. The "Mental Skills and Sports" section is packed with advice ranging from how to improve your memory to beating your opponents in games like chess, bridge, and even Trivial Pursuit. Also throughout the book are tests, brain-teasers and little-known facts about all aspects of human genius intended to stimulate and appeal to readers of all ages. Plus there are listings and comments on the champions of Mental World Records, so you can measure yourself against the very best.
