"I've Forgotten Everything . . ." is not a book of pop psychology or mnemonics, although a crash course in memory improvement is given in the first chapter. Most of the book is packed with information compiled as a series of "mental exercises designed to build your knowledge base." An introductory quiz establishes your individual weaknesses and strengths to enable you to focus on your needs. Literature, vocabulary, logical reasoning, abstract thought, sequences, and other mental stretches are covered. One most interesting chapter features classic post-Renaissance artwork that has been composed with "something missing," which the reader must discover. Vos Savant, inducted into the Guinness Book of World Records and the Guinness Hall of Fame for the highest IQ, also authors the "Ask Marilyn" column in Parade magazine. Denise Perry DonavinFrom Kirkus Reviews:
The Guiness Hall of Fame lists Parade columnist vos Savant's IQ as 228. Is it possible that what makes her so smart is that she realized, a while ago, that she could make more money by being cute than by thinking? Here she offers exercises for those who fear that their brains are becoming as flaccid as their muscles, breaking her little mind-spa down into four main categories (memory, comprehension, concrete thinking, and abstract thinking), each with its own subcategories. To be sure, there is some interesting stuff, most of it smart, in this amusing hodgepodge--fun hoops through which the mind can jump while the body is, say, in the john. -- Copyright ©1994, Kirkus Associates, LP.
