    Description100, 99.5, 98.5, 97, 95, ? What number comes next? Athletes, gymnasts and dancers strive to push their bodies to achieve maximum potential, exercising to improve suppleness, stamina and technique to be the best in their chosen field. Every one of us has to use our brain on a daily basis, but how many of us exercise or train our brain to improve its potential? Many of us take our brain for granted, believing there is little we can do to improve the brain we have been born with. This book sets out to demonstrate that this is not the case and that it is possible to considerably increase your brainpower and go some way to utilising your brain to its full potential. After giving a brief summary of the composition of the brain, the remainder of the book concentrates on the main areas of brain function -- creative thinking, memory, logical thought, agility of mind and intelligence -- and provides a series of fun, yet stimulating tests and exercises designed to improve your mental well--being. aeo Todaya s world increasingly calls for quick responses and the ability to think logically -- these tests are designed to give valuable practice for those who want or need to exercise their minds. aeo Section on IQ tests the disciplines most common in IQ testing -- spacial ability, logical thought process, verbal ability and numerical ability. aeo All tests have been specially written and compiled for this book by the UK Mensa Puzzle Editors Ken Russell and Philip Carter first met in 1984 through their membership of Enigmasig, a special interest group within British Mensa devoted to the setting and solving of puzzles.

    "!Use this book as a fun and informative way of testing, assessing, and expanding your brainpower!" (Intern, No.4, 2002)
    Back cover copy
    Despite the enormous capacity of the human brain, we only utilise on average two per cent of our potential brainpower. There is therefore enormous potential for us to expand our brainpower considerably and regular testing is a key method of doing just that.

    Included in this book are literally hundreds of completely new tests designed to give your brain a complete workout. Numerous puzzles and tests cover the areas of creative thinking, memory, logical thought, mental agility and intelligence. Also included is a hints section, as well as the actual answers. Some of the questions are designed for you to test yourself against the clock. All questions are designed to increase your brainpower.

    Use this and other books in the "IQ Workout Series" as a fun and informative way of testing, assessing, and expanding your brainpower! These books are suitable for anyone from 18 to 80 who wants to put themselves to the test. Ken Russell and Philip Carter have written nearly 100 books on all aspects of testing, puzzles and crosswords.
