In 1938, two authors embarked on a mission for the greater good of the country: to find more geniuses. They set about compiling fiendish brain-teasers, tortuous trick questions and complex numerical challenges and tested them thoroughly on some unsuspecting pupils. The most robust tests were collected into a quirky and ingenious puzzle book which allows you to discover whether you are a genius through a variety of verbal tests, story puzzles, hard sums and tricky spellings. Questions are grouped into a series of test papers, followed by 'brain-twisters' and a 'moron's morgue' to catch those not quite up to the challenge. Each answer (provided at the back) is carefully scored to determine the exact level of genius attained. Drawing on the simpler aspects of life in the 1930s, the book includes charmingly antique scenarios and old-fashioned extracts, as well as some timeless favourites. 'If a hen and a half lays an egg and a half in a day and a half, how many eggs will seven hens lay in six days?' 'By rearranging the letters in the word 'plea' make three new words.' 'Which is heavier, milk or cream?' If you think you know the answers, this book is for you. If you don't, why not try it out on your clever friends and discover which of them is truly a genius.

James Genius is a traveler hiding a secret. While trying to fit into a community that thrives off death, James begins building a new life that quickly turns into a personal hell in futuristic America. A new Civil War brews in America while James simultaneously fights his own internal demons and hallucinations as he attempts to locate the survivors of his hidden family. While the government promises to protect and separate citizens from one another, obsessive political control and suspicious behavior begins to confuse and upset the public. As a result, survival groups start preparing for the collapse of the government while a news organization, The Zoo Trials, tries to explain and solve the country's seemingly inevitable demise. James holds the key to a major change, but in a futile attempt to protect himself, he pretends he doesn't recall his past. Meanwhile, others encourage James to reveal his true self, but he waits for the right moment to fuel his transformation. Only time will tell if James finds the real life he's been desperately seeking and if the citizens of this revolutionary community will pull together and plant the seeds of positive change.

Part Good Will Hunting, part Anne Tyler, and part Six Feet Under, LIFE AFTER GENIUS is the story of a young math prodigy who leaves college on the brink of graduation, and returns home to confront the ghosts of his past and learn some surprising truths about the nature of failure and success. Theodore Mead Fegley has always been the smartest person he knows. By age 12, he was in high school, and by 15 he was attending a top-ranking university. And now, at the tender age of 18, he's on the verge of proving the Riemann Hypothesis, a mathematical equation that has mystified academics for almost 150 years. But only days before graduation, Mead suddenly packs his bags and flees home to rural Illinois. What has caused him to flee remains a mystery to all but Mead and a classmate whose quest for success has turned into a dangerous obession. At home, Mead finds little solace. His past ghosts haunt him; his parents don't understand the agony his genius has caused him, nor his desire to be a normal kid, and his dreams seem crushed forever. He embarks on a new life's journey -- learning the family business of selling furniture and embalming the dead--that disappoints and surprises all who knew him as "the young Fegley genius." Equal parts academic thriller and poignant coming-of-age story, LIFE AFTER GENIUS follows the remarkable journey of a young man who must discover that the heart may know what the head hasn't yet learned.

If you'd like to know what some of history's greatest thinkers and achievers can teach you about awakening your inner genius, and how to find, follow, and fulfill your journey to greatness, then you want to read this book today. You can score in the highest ranges of IQ...and fail to succeed in life. You can work incredibly hard...and never realize your dreams. You can stumble across beautiful opportunities...only to watch them wither and die. There's something else--something considered unfathomable by many--that lies behind greatness. And in Awakening Your Inner Genius, you're going to be taken on an adventure to discover what that is, and how you can use it to transform your life. You see, genius is a path, not a gift. Studies of history's greatest geniuses have shown that there is a "genius code," if you will. A combination of very specific traits that we can develop in ourselves, and thus, operate at a genius level. In this book, you're going to learn things like... Why IQ, opportunities, and working toward that magical goal of 10,000 hours don't comprise the whole story of great achievers, and what else is needed to walk in the footsteps of our greatest geniuses. How to view and deal with the world as Leonardo da Vinci did, and embrace the one trait that most accounted for his incredible genius and talents. Lessons from Nikola Tesla on why imagination is so vital to awakening your inner genius, and insights into the real "secret" to creativity, as explained by people like Jobs, Picasso, Dali, and Twain. How Thomas Edison was able to go from a mischievous academically challenged kid to the world's most successful inventor, and how you too can formulate and realize goals like he did. The secret to Alexander the Great's superhuman drive and work ethic, and how you can inspire yourself to pursue your own goals and dreams with the same vigor and tenacity. What geniuses like Elizabeth I can teach you about the importance of individualism in your journey to greatness, and how to strengthen your will to break away from conventions, ignore the naysayers, and stay true to your vision and principles. How Hippocrates' epic quest to reform medicine in ancient Greece was fueled by his unparalleled judgment, and how you too can sharpen your ability to make the right decisions at the right times and thus move closer to your dreams, one good call at a time. And much, much more... Imagine for a moment how this could change your life. If you dream of escaping the nine-to-five and striking out on your own, imagine if you knew with certainty that you would succeed. If you don't like where some aspect of humanity is going, imagine if you could do something amazing about it. If you have a stubborn desire to reach out into our culture and write "I was here," imagine if nothing could stop you. So, is the journey to genius right for you? Well, ask yourself the following questions. Who are you, really, and what are you really capable of? What is your calling, and what might happen in the world if you found out? If these questions ignite a spark of curiosity in you, then empower yourself to explore their meaning and magnitude. Read this book today and discover what it really takes to find and follow your bliss, and how to use the lessons passed down to us by some of history's greatest geniuses to systematically rise to top of your fields, activities, and endeavors.
