    How to become a genius? How to compose brilliant music, brilliant books? How to achieve the most complex goals? This book answers these and many other questions. Thanks for the recommendation! I have read and enjoyed.

    This was a very happy read, and I'm a book person.
    I can't begin to describe reactions to me, my singing as a youth, my art, music and inventions.
    And everyone used to say I was too cute.
    But one of my big lines was turning down praise, thanks and compliments,
    saying no, I'm not that good, I'm aspiring to greatness, and I haven't hit it yet.
    I would say I'm like a Jaguar XKE, owning a '62 D-type conversion,
    saying it might take a long time to manufacture and build by hand,
    but once I get on the road I'll be catching up and passing everyone else,
    spinning circles all around them.

    Victoria1121V, if you're interested in reading a book by another famous genius,
    please look for Professor Marshall McCluhan, a Canadian.
    He invented the term "global village", and predicted the world of computers.
    I recommend "Understanding Media: The Extensions of Man", and "The Gutenberg Galaxy".
    Yes, music, art, war and life, but, much more than that, what's in your brain.
    Another Scottish clan brought you the Holy Bible in English,
    and if The Testament of the Third Millennium was written, he'd have a chapter.
    Maybe two.
