Books make you smarter.

Yep, it's scientifically proven that books are good for your brain. With a business to run, you need your noggin' in tip-top shape.

According to psychologists, there are a few different types of intelligence:

  • Emotional intelligence is the ability to understand and respond to the feelings of yourself and others.
  • Fluid intelligence is the ability to solve problems.
  • Crystallized intelligence is the knowledge you have.
