Smarter free pdf Can you make yourself, your kids, and your parents smarter?
Expanding upon one of the most-read "New York Times Magazine" features of 2012, "Smarter "penetrates the hot new field of intelligence research to reveal what researchers call a revolution in human intellectual abilities. Shattering decades of dogma, scientists began publishing studies in 2008 showing that "fluid intelligence"--the ability to learn, solve novel problems, and get to the heart of things--can be increased through training.
But is it all just hype? With vivid stories of lives transformed, science journalist Dan Hurley delivers practical findings for people of every age and ability. Along the way, he narrates with acidtongued wit his experiences as a human guinea pig, road-testing commercial brain-training programs, learning to play the Renaissance lute, getting physically fit, even undergoing transcranial directcurrent stimulation.
"Smarter "speaks to the audience that made bestsellers out of "Train Your Mind, Change Your Brain" and "Moonwalking with Einstein."
