    So much interesting question :)
    Really you are brilliant man! That's why you are throwing such question. If you think you have to grow up your brain then please try to play daba, sikudu etc. If you don't like these then you can buy IQ books. That you'll found in your local library. You can get more help from mathematics. Always try to found solution of mathematics and geometry. These will be the better therapy. I'm not so clever but don't like reading just like to found technical solution so that someone can write on me :)

    Hard to say without knowing you, but under no circumstances ever read that stupid trash "the secret" or "think and grow rich". I've seen these being recommended on this forum...

    And Tim Ferris books? Are they trash too or not?

    Anyway, if you want a GREAT book: Imajica, Clive Barker. Part-horror, part-fantasy, part-travel, part-"oh-my-fucking-god"

    I haven't read him, but I suspect the 4hr workweek to be quite shit, geared towards the weak-minded, who think they will read some cheesy generic advice and their lives will change. Like WSOs, y'know.

    I read about half of the 4 hour workweek. Definitely could have been condensed down a lot, but I thought it was pretty good. Best part was just learning his philosophy on how he values time as a currency. Most of his productivity advice is helpful too. He's all about doing the most in the least amount of time possible... sounds a lot like BHW to be honest.

    If I were to recommend a book to grow your brain though, I really liked The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People and Models (dating book, but helped me grow my overall confidence tenfold).
