Excerpt from Chapter One
We now know beyond a shadow of a doubt that:
1. Children want to multiply their intelligence;
2. Children can multiply their intelligence;
3. Children are multiplying their intelligence;
4. Children should multiply their intelligence;
5. It is easy to each mothers how to multiply their children’s intelligence.
More importantly, since the 1960’s we’ve actually been teaching mothers to raise their children’s intelligence by leaps and bounds and they’ve been doing it.
We have a duty to tell every mother and father alive what we have learned.

When you teach a tiny child even one of these things, his intelligence rises.
When you teach a tiny child several of these things, his intelligence rises sharply.
When you teach all these things to a tiny child with joy and love and respect, his intelligence is multiplied.
And best of all, when parents who truly love and respect their babies give them the gift of knowledge and ability, children are happier, kinder and more caring than children who have not been given these opportunities.
Knowledge does lead to good.
Children who are the most competent are the most self-sufficient. They have the least reason to whine and the most reason to smile.
Children who are the brightest have the least reason to demand help.
Children who have the most ability have the least need to hit other children.
Children who have the most ability have the least reason to cry and the greatest reason to do things.
In short, the children who are truly bright, knowledgeable, and capable are the nicest children and the most understanding of others. They are full of the characteristics for which we love children.
