A non-fiction work explaining how anyone can increase their descendants' intelligence eventually to a genius level. There is nothing mysterious or revolutionary about the science involved. Intelligence is to a major degree inherited,which means that that if it is selected for in reproduction, its degree may be increased, much the same as speed has been selected for in racehorses. Doing this in a voluntary setting with humans is the challenge, but can be done in a practical way. There are a number of challenges involved in doing this voluntarily and without treating humans as domesticated animals, and some surprising and unexpected factors and methodology that need to be understood, as well as questions of morality and politics. There is some very bad history involved with this direction of thought, and it must be understood, and therefore is explained in the book, why this history is not relevant to the program set forth in the book. Nevertheless, the inappropriate associations that will inevitably be made are forseeably controversial. The reader is urged to keep an open mind and read what is actually in the book before jumping to emotional and irrational conclusions. The program is equally applicable to all persons and groups in society, and in fact is probably of greatest utility to those members of society at a disadvantage. The thesis and tentatively proposed systems of achieving more intelligent descendants holds obvious promise not only for individuals but for society.
