I am at odds with myself, having not yet decided whether to be amused or angry at this book. A little bit of both, maybe.

Negative points:

First of all, the authors remind us every few pages, and at the beginning of many chapters, of their works of fiction. This detracts from the serious non-fictional subject at hand; it is hardly what you’d want to back up ambitious claims with, although it’s just the thing for promoting a novel. These references shouldn’t be present if they want Genius Intellige

I read this book in one day,and wished the book was longer. Reading Genius Intelligence opened my eyes to how much potential people have but never use. Many famous people have used techniques, nutritional supplements, and healthy food choices that the general public are unaware of to achieve great accomplishments. I also liked how the authors had pictures throughout the book showing visually what they were explaining to the reader.

I like this book because it´s short (as opposed to this review), simply and clearly written, and addresses an engrossing subject.

Throughout the book the authors refer to their thriller series, The Orphan Trilogy, in which the lead character, Nine, and the other orphans are trained to have genius intelligence.

Previously, we believed that genius was solely a matter of being born with superior genes, but now we realize that genes can be both activated and deactivated, and through the “new” science

GENIUS INTELLIGENCE: Secret Techniques and Technologies to Increase IQ
by James Morcan & Lance Morcan

Some people have wondered what if there are faster and easier ways to learn? This book challenges the myth that geniuses are born not developed. It also tells how extraordinarily smart people are developed by using brain enhancing technologies.

We learn that some famous people such as Steve Jobs, Albert Einstein & Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart(to name a few) have achieved their intelligence through and a

'Genius Intelligence' is amazing. The book tells a lot. I've heard few things but 'Genius Intelligence' gave me a better clarity.
The book is very well written and illustrated.
'Genius Intelligence' has the potential to bring Genius out of Us.
The references are of big help. It is the door to a new world of self improvement.
The book gives us the ways to change our learning techniques. It is said that a person keeps learning till his last breath. What's the better way to learn than reading books.

When I was a child and questioned why something was done the way it was, I was often told that that was because it had always been done that way. Yet, not once did I hear a complaint about switching from a scrub board to a wringer washer, and then to an automatic clothes washer! My point being is that we advance technology, adapt to it quite quickly, readily giving up less tedious ways of doing, viewing, things. Back in the old college days I could not have even imagined the utility of the lapto ...more

Well, I admit I am biased because I am a member of the GR group - ‘Underground Knowledge’ run by this author (and his father) and I admire their research immensely, particularly that of James who just happens to share my views on everything!

So you will have to make up your own mind! 🤔

The authors explain the definitions and concepts of what Genius Intelligence truly means without using complicated technical terms, but rather, it is written in a language for everyone to read.

I had no idea there were so many ways to train our brain to break through the barriers/limits or pre-conceived potentials that we have created for ourselves. Our mind surely is a beautiful thing!

It was definitely an exciting read as I felt that I could become smart, too! I ended up looking up more informat

Recommended to Robert by: Author
Genius Intelligence is an elegant and fascinating read. It begins with the premise that when the human brain's potential is unleashed, there can be few if any limitations. The authors then describe and present an encyclopedic array of techniques and technologies, utilized by historic masters such as da Vinci and Mozart, and concluding with Oprah Winfrey, Michael Jordan, and Gwyneth Paltrow. By their definition, genius is not something measured on a standardized test. James and Lance Morcan perce ...more

As the authors point out in their introduction, a lot of books out there on genius and intelligence tend to be too academically written for an average reader to fully comprehend, which could perhaps be quite ironic. Lance and James Morcan don't claim to be experts in the field. This short work is purposely intended to be an overview of the subject, and it's a subject they deliver very well.
I felt like I was rummaging through one of those big bumper books of mysterious and strange facts which wou

What exactly is genius intelligence?
Is is sewn into the genes?
Is it possible that I too could be a genius?
Is it nothing but hard work and learning that makes us one?

James and Lance Morcan has done it again - and with loving what you learn, can make the difference between the average Joe and a brilliant mind.
The brain is a complex organ of soft nervous tissue that stimulates both sensory and intellectual capacity. Within these pages of 'GENIUS INTELLIGENCE' are fascinating techniques to learn eas

The authors´ most crucial discovery is that, “Human intelligence is not necessary something you were born with or genetically predisposed towards. In fact in most instances of above-the-ordinary intelligences are usually acquired through superior learning techniques!”
Genius Intelligence is a thoroughly interesting and thought-provoking guide on practical methods, techniques, accelerated learning methods and the use of chemicals that are used to help improve IQ. The authors´ explore a great numb

I received the book from the authors for an honest review.
The one thing that I really enjoy about this father and son team is their honesty: where they come from, their education, etc, eliminating any ideas that they are highly educated people with many degrees behind their name. Instead they are ordinary, normal guys that has a great interest in these subjects and wants to share it with me, an ordinary working woman.
From the moment that you read their books you are captured with their unique s

Learning how to learn! This book has opened up the idea for me that there are alternative learning methods out there. I am always interested in learning new things, from learning a new language to new music instruments and much more. This book has now got me interested in learning to speed read. However, I'm not sure which one is the best to learn speed reading.

This book does reveal different learning techniques that are used to enhance learning. This book does remind me a lot of remote viewing

A Book that makes you think!

Genius Intelligence is a a well-researched, concise and well-written book. It's not going to give you all the answers to increase your IQ, but it will give you straight to the point information about techniques (such as speed-reading, meditation, yoga, hypnosis etc.) and technologies (virtual reality, tDCS etc.).
I'm sure this book will stimulate your interest in carrying out further research on how to improve your I.Q. ... my reaction after having read it!

Right up my alley! This is the kind of book you cannot put down! Genius Intelligence is interesting and full of facts and research that is well written. For sure, I will be introducing research from this book to increase my IQ and hopefully make my life simpler. The pictures were great and I loved how the writers gave examples of who uses which secret technique. Fantastic! *5 to say the least! Thank you for writing such an interesting book that can help me learn! Dr. Denise

An easily read book that discusses various technologies and techniques to raise intelligence. The authors point out whether or not each technique has been scientifically tested and by whom.

Rather than provide specific instructions, the authors encourage the reader to seek out tuition (as in the case of speed reading) or resources (in the case of self-hypnotism) to enhance or develop the reader's skills in these areas. Ambidexterity and peripheral vision enhancement are two notable exceptions to

I had never heard of neuroplasticity, the genus of Higher Intelligence, until I became enamored of Lance and James Morcan’s Orphan Trilogy books.
With their well-researched writing style it is a no brainer to absorb this idea that geniuses are developed not born, which hooked me. How do I get myself some of this now I am on the downside of 70 years of age when my brain cells are meant to be atrophying?

The human brain is a complex mechanism that has always eluded me so when I came across the book I got curious. After all, intelligence defines us as either a genius or a mediocre. I mean, who wouldn’t want to be a genius.

Like most people, I was a little skeptical at first but as I read through the various chapters I became intrigue. There were lots of provoking questions proposed by James & Lance Morcan that challenges the readers to think. From speed-reading, harboring a photographic memory to

I’m not one to read non fiction books, but Genius Intelligence is one of those books that bucks the trend. An easy to read book that informs and educates, and could be understood by any layman. It suggests that there is a genius within all of us, if only we were to use our brain to its full potential. A lot of the techniques were new to me, but I would certainly try some of them myself. In all a great read and an inspiring one too.

I enjoyed exploring the ideas set forth in this book. The authors basically delve into various theories and applications for raising one's IQ. While the authors offer scientific research and studies to back up a lot of the theories presented the text never comes across as drab or droll. It actually made me want to read the Orphan Trilogy because I am sooo interested to see these ideas extrapolated!

There is no trivial talks, long stories...this book is to the point and each sentence is relevant.
