Xenophon Hendrix For those wanting to get functionally smarter, reading a basic book on symbolic logic won't hurt. I don't have any title in mind, but it's not a difficult topic to study on one's own. Ditto for any psychology 101 textbook.

I also suggest taking mathematics at least through first-year calculus, and I especially suggest a class in beginning probability and statistics.


message 2: by Ryan (new)

Ryan @Xenophon - thanks for the suggestions!


message 3: by Chris (last edited Oct 10, 2014 03:28AM) (new)

Chris Cathcart self-congratulatory elitism, or a first-rate reading list? or both? :D


message 4: by Elyse (new)

Elyse I don't think this list will make anyone smarter. But I think it will increase our knowledge of the world. I have a terrible memory. I wish I could remember half of what I read.


message 5: by Xenophon (new)

Xenophon Hendrix It's difficult to impossible to get smarter, but you can make better use of what you have.
