The Best 10 Books That Will Make You More Intelligent
1. Thinking, Fast and Slow
by Daniel Kahneman
This book is a reflection of thinking. System 1 v.s. makes rapid judgments by relying on emotion, memory, and experience. 2. Rational person v.s. human, experience self v.s. memory self.
Through the study of human judgment, decision-making, and choice, caiman discusses fast thinking and slow thinking, intuition, and rationality, as well as human defects in the process of decision-making.
A brilliant (indeed, Nobel Prize-winning) concept made unbearably tedious by endless case studies. Kahneman going on for over 400 pages about his two systems reminded me strongly of Bernard Shaw's comment on Darwin:—Read More—WSG01
2. Death Notice

China's highest IQ social crime novel, let all self-think high IQ readers applaud the case! Anyone who receives the "death notice" will be brutally killed by the mysterious killer according to the date of the notice.

An exciting book that you'll find very hard to put down. Full of teams and turns and I look forward to reading more from this author as (hopefully) more of his books get translated in time. Well worth the purchase. A gripping read from start to finish.—Read More—The Night Gardener
3. Pyramid Principle: Logic of thinking, expressing, and solving problems
This book was written by Barbara Minto in 1973. These principles have become the standard of McKinsey and are considered part of McKinsey's organizational structure.
It is pointed out in the book that everything can be summed up into a central argument, which can be supported by three to seven arguments. These first-class arguments can also be arguments, supported by three to seven arguments at the second level,
so as to extend from top to bottom or reverse, to determine the subject, determine the question, give the answer, check whether the conflict leads to the problem, confirm the answer, and supplement the relationship Key sentences, this is logic training.
A once-hot and now unappreciated classic, one of the best how-to writing guides for technical and persuasive works in any language. Minto wove together the requirements that logic imposes on the structure and format of argumentative and technical written works.—Read More—Anon
4. Out of Control
Author: Kevin Kelly
This is a "big book" about the evolution of human society (or complex systems in a more general sense). For those readers who are not afraid of "mental gymnastics", it is bound to open a book.
What a book! I will be thinking about the concepts and ideas presented in this book for a long, long time. Kelly is a little more at home writing magazine articles, and sometimes the book lacks a coherent thesis, but that is more than made up for with wonderful prose, and unbridled excitement for his subject.—Read More—Jeremy Foote
5. And Then There Were None
Author: Agatha Christie
Ten strangers were invited by the rich Mr. Owen to a private villa on the Indian Island. After dinner, a mysterious voice revealed the terrible secrets hidden in people's hearts.
On that night, young Mr. Marston died strangely. The old nursery rhyme was like a curse. It seemed that there was a pair of mysterious glasses watching the game of death all the time.
The visitors were like the disappearing little Indian porcelains one after another This is the most famous work of detective queen Agatha Christie, which has been translated into 40 languages and adapted into movies, TV plays, stage plays, radio plays, video games, etc.
Having read everything she had written, I've always debated as to which of Agatha Christie's works tops my list. For a while, it was "ABC Murders". But, having re-read "And Then There Were None," I came to the conclusion that there's simply nothing else like it, and it tops my list.—Read More—Andrew Beyzman
6. Spectrum of Consciousness
Author: Ken Wilber
The Spectrum of Consciousness is the first book written by Ken Wilbur, a great master of transpersonal psychology. He compares the essence of human consciousness to a rainbow spectrum, from shadow to self, then to mind and soul, and finally to the perfection of spirituality.
Ken Wilbur integrates psychology, psychotherapy, mysticism, and spiritual cultivation of Eastern and Western religions with his amazing inductive research ability.
He also integrates many fields such as philosophy, sociology, transpersonal psychology, anthropology, mythology, economics, biology, physics, etc., forming the "grand unified field theory" of consciousness and starting a revolution in transpersonal psychology.
“Spectrum has intrinsically different characteristics—different needs, different symbols, different modes of awareness, different motivations, different compensations, and so on. When a particular level is rendered unconscious, so are the major features of the characteristics of that level. Thus, the unconscious is stratified, and for the very same reasons that the Spectrum itself is stratified.”—Read More—Todd M Runyon
7. Finnegans Wake
By James Joyce, Ireland
This book describes a night dream, with a "labyrinth" literary structure, full of stream of consciousness. Joyce even invented a unique "dream language" in the history of the world language.
One of the most famous words in the whole book is Joyce's 100-letter word "lightning strike", which simulates the continuous rumble of thunder. What is more amazing is that the first sentence of the novel is "written on the last page", while the last sentence is "written on the first page".
I don't think my life is long enough to give this book the close reading it deserves, but I'm enjoying the challenge of seeing how much I can understand. I would recommend it to obsessive-compulsive freaks with a sense of humor.—Read More—Kristin Ohman
8. Da Vinci Code
Author: Dan Brown
This novel is known as the best knowledge suspense novel so far! The puzzling code in The Da Vinci Code is hidden in Leonardo da Vinci's works of art; the desperate competition is unfolded in cathedrals and castles all over Europe; the shocking truth, after being covered up for hundreds of years, is finally lifted up the mysterious veil. "The Da Vinci Code" eclipses other horror novels known for their wisdom! It's genius. "
It's been years since 'The Da Vinci Code has been out, and I'm sure everything has been said that needs to be said about it, but I would like to share my own personal story about this book.—Read More—Kristin Ohman
9. Engines of Logic
by Martin Davis
This book can be said to be the originator of computer thought. It introduces the basic concepts behind modern computers and the people who developed these concepts.
It describes the lives and work of genii such as Leibniz, bull, Freig, Cantor, Hilbert, Godel, and Turing, and describes how mathematicians have put forward the ideas behind the achievements long before they are put into application.
Although other logicians are well covered, the emphasis is on Alan Turing. There is a wonderfully clear and simple presentation of the unsolvability of Hilbert's Entscheidungsproblem using Turing machines. I recommend this book to mathematicians & non-mathematicians alike.—Read More—L. Shalla
10. Strategic Thinking: strategic competition in business, politics, and everyday life.
by Avinash K. Dixit
The science of strategic thinking is called game theory. "Strategic Thinking: Strategic Competition in Business, politics, and daily life" is a classic book on game theory co-authored by Yale University Professor Neil Boff and Princeton University, Professor Dixit.
When they started writing, few people knew the game theory. Nowadays, game theory has gradually become a popular course in Colleges and business schools. This book is about the art of knowing how your opponent intends to beat you and then you win.
How to win a tennis match, how the minority can beat the majority, why you should "love" your most hated opponent, and so on, are all discussed. This is an emerging strategy science, which consists of some simple basic principles.
Thinking Strategically is one of the first books I ever read on strategy. Since I read it it has changed my perspective and way of thinking and analyzing all sorts of problems from business to personal life. The book in a sense has become a manual of problem assessment in my life I have used its concepts in situations where I have to predict rivals' moves in business, work, and personal life.—Read More—Anthony Tate.
