From the publisher of B. Kliban’s Cat, All I Need to Know I Learned from My Cat, and Bad Cat, comes a new book that answers the question all cat lovers ask: How do I make my cat like me? 97 Ways to Make a Cat Like You is the perfect interactive guide to these mysterious, fickle, seemingly aloof—yet really, just particular—pets. Paired with a full-color photograph of friendly, extroverted, happy cats (in case you’ve forgotten what a cat looks like when he “likes” you), the 97 inspired, occasionally silly but always behaviorally-based tips and tricks prove that when a cat is treated right, he or she will respond in kind. Within reason. There’s the “Eye on the Ball”—record a tennis match or a Ping-Pong game on TV to play back for your cat when he needs a bit of exercise. “Cat Burrito”—wrap your cat in a towel, burrito-style, which is particularly good for anxious pets or trips to the vet. The “Boing, Boing!”—wind pipe cleaners around a pencil in a spiral shape to create springs. Carefully slide off the pencil so the spirals go “boing” when pressed. The classic “Tickle, Tickle”—tickle Kitty under her chin and softly say “gitchy, gitchy, gitchy” in your highest-pitched voice. And for the cat owner willing to go the distance, the “There’s No Business Like Show Business”—practice your best Ethel Merman by belting out favorite show tunes for your cat. Kitty won’t care if you’re off-key and she’ll enjoy the stimulation.

Over the last few decades, economists and psychologists have quietly documented the many ways in which a person's IQ matters. But, research suggests that a nation's IQ matters so much more. As Garett Jones argues in Hive Mind, modest differences in national IQ can explain most cross-country inequalities. Whereas IQ scores do a moderately good job of predicting individual wages, information processing power, and brain size, a country's average score is a much stronger bellwether of its overall prosperity. Drawing on an expansive array of research from psychology, economics, management, and political science, Jones argues that intelligence and cognitive skill are significantly more important on a national level than on an individual one because they have "positive spillovers." On average, people who do better on standardized tests are more patient, more cooperative, and have better memories. As a result, these qualities—and others necessary to take on the complexity of a modern economy—become more prevalent in a society as national test scores rise. What's more, when we are surrounded by slightly more patient, informed, and cooperative neighbors we take on these qualities a bit more ourselves. In other words, the worker bees in every nation create a "hive mind" with a power all its own. Once the hive is established, each individual has only a tiny impact on his or her own life. Jones makes the case that, through better nutrition and schooling, we can raise IQ, thereby fostering higher savings rates, more productive teams, and more effective bureaucracies. After demonstrating how test scores that matter little for individuals can mean a world of difference for nations, the book leaves readers with policy-oriented conclusions and hopeful speculation: Whether we lift up the bottom through changing the nature of work, institutional improvements, or freer immigration, it is possible that this period of massive global inequality will be a short season by the standards of human history if we raise our global IQ.

Measure Your Cat's IQ explores why the domestic house cat may be the most intelligent creature on the planet. You can stop laughing now, it's true! They manage to manipulate other animals, and us naive humans, to get what they want and yet still wiggle deeper into our hearts simply by purring like a motorboat or snuggling into our sides at night. Out of the estimated 74 Million cats in the United States, you might have a Kitty Einstein living with you but how can you know? The conundrum is; how can we state how smart a cat is without a way to measure or qualify the Kitty IQ? This is exactly what Measure Your Cat's IQ is going to address. In Measure Your Cat's IQ you will find: -A breakdown of categories that will quantify kitty intelligence over various aspects of behavior and thought patterns. -Test and experiments you and your family can do with your feline. -A rating system to quantify the tests. -Examples of other cats' scores to follow along with throughout the book. -Tales of adventures and mayhem of kitties for each category. In addition, the provided template for the Kitty Communication Journal will assist you in increasing the communication patterns with your kitty for a more satisfying relationship. Each chapter of the book will be broken down into a short academic introduction of the category followed by one or more sections. Each section will describe the behavior or intellectual area we will be scoring followed by a test. Tales are included to provide example responses ranging from those Devilish Genius kitties all the way down to the Feeble Minded Fuzz Ball. The last section of the book contains the information to collect and total all your kitty's scores to determine the IQ level.
