How to Improve Your Mind: 20 Keys to Unlock the Modern World

Each day our minds experience a deluge of conversation, lectures, newspapers, TV, the Internet, and more.  But what should we really be paying attention to?

In How to Improve Your Mind: 20 Keys to Unlock the Modern World, Flynn presents twenty key concepts to aid critical thinking: practical guidelines that will empower you to critically analyze what you read, what you hear, and what you see.

Flynn's "twenty keys" translate into an invaluable tool kit enables readers to make up their own minds about ethics, religion, history, economics, international politics, and even what they should eat. How to Improve Your Mind offers great insights into how to become an information master in the age of information overload. 

James R. Flynn, world-renowned intelligence researcher and discoverer of the Flynn Effect (the phenomenon of rising global IQs over time), shows how you can be the master of this information deluge in five parts:

Arguing about Right and Wrong
The Truth about People
The Market and Its Church
Enemies of Science
Nations and their Goals
