I did read this book. I don't think I am that smart. I have trouble spelling and I could not pass calc I. I have learned some C++ windows programming. I do feel like I have reached the limit of my intellegence when I try to solve some algorthems. I did finsh college with a B average and I am in the army. I have learned a foreign language to a high degree of being fluent.
I did score pretty good on the Army ASVAB with is supposed to be highly G intensive. It was a really easy test and I can't imagine that any person who know how to read could fail that test.
If you read this book you are very smart and have a great ability to deal with information. I have tried to emulate smart people in not doing drugs or having sex before I could support a family. That stuff is not hard or does not take much mental capacity but is factor of choice. I admire people that are more intellegen than I am. I learn a great deal from them.
