Summary
The human brain is an incredibly powerful organ. Its abilities are still only vaguely understood--and few people have come close to tapping even the tiniest fraction of its full potential. Yet with that fraction they have accomplished incredible deeds. This fascinating book reveals the secrets of those masters of the mind. With step-by-step instructions for performing 50 mental feats ranging from the merely impressive (deceive a lie detector, decipher body language, win a game of chess) to the stunning (master pain, think like a genius, hypnotize yourself and others), the miraculous (bend spoons, read minds, cure illness), and the scarcely believable (travel outside your body, foretell the future, walk on fire), Mind Games is a complete practical guide to exploring--and building--your own mental powers. Some of the activities in these pages have firm foundations in science; others, based on the accounts of those who claim to have accomplished them, require a certain leap of faith. Only you can judge what is truly possible as you exercise your brain, harness its enormous power, and train it to perform truly amazing acts of will!
