Book Review: Beyond IQ by Garth Sundem

I've been busy reading through Garth Sundem's book, Beyond IQ.  It's an interesting discussion on the many different facets of the brain that contribute to intelligence and problem-solving.  The author breaks the contributing factors into different segments such as creativity, intuition, expertise, wisdom, performance under pressure, emotional intelligence, willpower and multitasking.  For each segment, he gives research on how the variable impacts our overall intelligence and practical activities we can do to strengthen that part of our brains.  I'm especially intrigued by the dozens upon dozens of brain-building exercises that he has spread throughout the chapters.  If you are interested in learning how to expand your brainpower or the brainpower of young people that you love, pick up this book and see what you think.  Disclaimer:  The publisher sent me a copy of the book in exchange for my honest review.
