Format: Paperback
I recently applied for a job at a prestigious software company, but I was rejected because they told me my I.Q. was about 3 points too low for the position I wanted. Crushed and humiliated, I desperately sought a "do-it-yourself" method for artificially raising my I.Q. so that I could acquire my dream job. My quest took months and miles of travel. I looked into expensive surgery, African herbal remedies, and even Haitian voodoo in order to increase my I.Q., all to no avail. Frustrated, I was ready to give up all hope and force myself to work the rest of my life as a repo man, when a friend recommended me this book. He said that he had purchased it a few years ago, and that it had raised his I.Q. by 50 points! Overjoyed, yet hesitant, I asked him what the title of the book was. He replied that the title was "How to Raise Your I.Q. by Eating Gifted Children."

Initially I was skeptical, as I have read that children, especially gifted children, are very low on fiber and other vital nutrients. Plus, they don't have a whole lot of meat to roast, which can kind of make you feel wasteful. My friend assured me that the book would address all of my questions, and that the method worked extremely well. Anxious to discover if devouring intelligent children would boost my I.Q., I eagerly tore into the book and read it in one night. All I can say is: WOW! It absolutely blew me away with all of the incredible recipes and tips for cooking and eating smart kids. It is written in a very easy-to-read, easy-to-understand manner that is readily accessible to all. It even has full color diagrams that illustrate the best ways to dismember and cook the children in order to achieve the best results.

Just ate my first gifted child and let me tell you, I feel smarter already. It is a lot of work as gifted childern are hard to come by, but after finding the first and chowing down I'm finally ready to get that GED.

Not as funny as I'd hoped. Frumkes is a wit, but he wears thin; after a while, absurd and funny gives way to absurd and tedious.

Truly a must have... I've already noticed results, and I believe I can continue to improve my I.Q. further.

I do wish they covered a little more in depth how to acquire more gifted children to consume. Skulking around private schools in a van can be tiresome and risky. A mail order service would be convenient, though human trafficking is somewhat frowned upon.

Despite the shortcomings, I highly recommend this book to anyone aspiring for a little more intelligence. If you have easy access to gifted children, then this is a no-brainer... buy it now!

Format: Paperback
At last, recipes for the Mensan! The recipe chapter is an expansion of the idea set forth in A Modest Proposal by Jonathan Swift, but without the political bite.

The rest of the book is composed of Mr. Frumkes forays into the urban jungle. They tend to be breezy and long-winded, with very little substance. The observations in the book are good for a giggle, but don't expect a glimpse of the deeper ironies - there weren't any real belly laughs in this book.

If you are in Mensa, this book belongs on your shelf. However, if you are looking for some meaty humor, you likely won't find it here.
