There’s no secret when it comes to how to get smarter – you read. A lot.

Really, that’s it.

And if you don’t believe me, there’s a whole host of luminaries, from Warren Buffett and Bill Gates to Richard Branson and Barack Obama, who will tell you the same thing.

But if building your brainpower is that straightforward, why don’t more people do it?

For the same reason that we fail to do lots of worthy but less urgent self-improvement projects–we’re all really busy.

But are we really? A new article by Charles Chu of site Better Humans raises an eyebrow of skepticism at people who claim they simply don’t have enough time to feed their intellect with books. And he has math on his side.
