Editorial Reviews

Review

"Smarter is an essential read. It's a riveting look at the birth of a new science as well as a user’s manual for anyone who wants to be better at solving problems, learning new things, and coming up with creative ideas."
—Daniel H. Pink, author of Drive and A Whole New Mind

"A clear-eyed but encouraging view of cognitive enhancement." 
Scientific American MIND

"Chatty and personal, Smarter is an easy read—even for those of us with untrained brains."
The Washington Post

“Hurley captures the history and mystery of intelligence, but, most of all, the exciting new science of intellectual growth. This may be the most important revolution of our time!”
—Carol Dweck, Author of Mindset: The New Psychology of Success
 
"Dan Hurley isolates just what cognitive exercise boosts intelligence.  Anyone who doubts that environment can make a real difference to cognition should start with this book."
—James R. Flynn author of What is Intelligence
 
“Filled with beautifully explained science, Smarter is engaging and inspiring, offering much-needed hope to those of us whose smarts seem to be declining. Smarter, in fact, is that rare thing: enjoyable reading that can also improve your life.”
—Gretchen Reynolds, author of The First 20 Minutes
