Television personality Richard Quest airs his monthly “Quest” program on CNN. On September 23/24 (Saturday 06:00, 14:00, 19:00 and Sunday 06:00, 19:00 ALL TIMES GMT) he will air one called “The Quest for Genius.”

“This month on Quest, we take a journey into the human mind, the complex gray matter that distinguishes us from the rest of life on Earth. Along the way, we will explore the concept of genius, the mysterious workings of the brain and whether Richard Quest is as smart as he thinks…

In the program, Quest will interview chess player Garry Kasparov, Dr. James Watson of DNA fame, Kim Peek (AKA the Rain Man)—and Tony Buzan. Of Buzan, CNN writes: “Having founded the World Memory Championships more than a decade ago, Buzan is convinced the computer inside us knows no boundaries if we teach it how to work properly. Quest puts Buzan’s pioneering mind-mapping techniques to the test in the vain hope he can salvage what little memory he has left.”

Tune in if you get a chance!

    Tony Buzan’s evidence is astounding especially when working with people labeled with dyslexia. Mind maps have enabled these people to prove their knowledge by allowing them a chance to demonstrate this in a format that works for them. We are all born genius – it’s how you were taught to use your mind that either has worked for you – or not. Great news that mind maps are becoming more common in corporate world & in schools as Tony will share. Surely using more of your mind more of the time – is of interest to all. The rewards are out of this world and into a whole new one.
