How to Be a Genius:
Your Brain and How to Train It

Your Amazing Brain
The brain is the most astonishing part
of your body. Its billions of cells control
everything you think and do, including
your actions, senses, emotions,
memory, and language. The more
you use it, the better it works.
This book is all about how to
get your brain cells buzzing and,
maybe, become a genius.


Perfect pair
This puzzle tests your
spatial awareness—your
sense of space. Which two
pieces on the far right will
fit together to create this
hexagon shape?

Thinking
Your brain is always solving
problems by connecting
different ideas—even when
they are not part of your own
experience. Only humans

can do this.

Memory
Every event or fact that
grabs your attention may be
stored in your memory—an
amazingly efficient library of
information that never runs

out of space.

Language
Your brain gives you the
ability to communicate and
understand complex ideas
using speech. You can also
learn by reading words that

were written long ago.

Movement
Your brain triggers and
organizes your movements,
so your actions are smooth
and efficient. Most of this
happens without you
thinking about it.

Feel lost?
Life is full of puzzling
problems—such as how
to get to the middle of
this tricky maze. It’s your
a-maze-ing brain that
helps you find the

answers.
