This show is for Happy Warriors not for Tennis-Balls-Floating-Down-The-Gutter-of-Life. Every Happy Warrior repeatedly proclaims “I am the master of my fate, I am the captain of my soul.” The “New York Times” published an article entitled ‘The Secrets of Jewish Genius’ which discussed the oft-noticed reality that an identifiable demographic numbering about 1/10 of one percent of the world’s population has won 27% of Nobel prizes in physics and 31% percent of the Nobel prizes in medicine and yes, Jewish men make up 54% of the world chess champions. In the show I point out that none of this has anything to do with business success and making money which is not IQ related. I also point out that I am definitely not boasting—I’ve known far too many really stupid coreligionists (all of whom vote wrong). Fortune is the result of knowing what I teach--ancient Jewish wisdom’s secrets of money. The article was instantly surrounded by a firestorm of controversy because it touched on the forbidden topic of IQ all of which I explain in this show. What followed was a debate on what makes Jews so smart? Various theories, some credible, followed. But they never even whispered the most important explanation for IQ differences. Yes, IQ is largely an inherited trait, however intergenerational statistical anomalies abound and in this show I explain the most devastating thing men do to harm their mental acuity and what they can do to improve their own intelligence as well as that of their children. Finalizing the raging dispute with Mrs. Lapin about beauty and confidence, I confide to you the details of how her remarkable confidence brought one of my dreams to life and gave me seven new ones.
