The IQ Answer is a fascinating and user-friendly guide to fulfilling one’s potential. With millions of new cases of ADD and other learning disabilities diagnosed every year, parents are searching for solutions to help them break through their children’s performance plateaus. And any adult who has ever been frustrated by a stubborn mental block will learn the steps to scale it and tackle any project creatively. Written in response to the overwhelming need that Dr. Lawlis sees every day in his practice and in his role as Dr. Phil’s primary contributing psychologist, The IQ Answer will be a powerful tool for all those who want to be as successful as they can be.
In this off-beat self-help, Lawlis (The Add Answer) explores every inch of the wide field of techniques for boosting the power of the human mind, with an exciting and empowering premise: "Your body has physical limitations. But your mind can soar above and beyond what you think is possible." Readers who would like to increase creativity and problem-solving abilities-as well as the more dubious goal of acing IQ tests-will find in this text a cornucopia of ideas to pursue, though a portion seem of dubious utility, backed more by anecdote than scientific evidence. Numerous studies are quoted, but contentious ideas-such as the use of "chelation" to detoxify the brain and the "strategic nutritional plan for mood energy"-have just been cleverly sandwiched between well-referenced facts. Frequent allusions to Dr. Phil aside, this quirky guide proves slightly out there, which will make it a refreshing change for some readers, while others will wish for more links to scientific research behind the controversial claims. The title is misleading, as the book is aimed directly at the reader rather than at the reader-as-parent.
