Publications and Reports

Open booksChristopher Morley wrote, “Read, every day, something no one else is reading. Think, every day, something no one else is thinking. Do, every day, something no one else would be silly enough to do. It is bad for the mind to continually be part of unanimity.”

No, we're not trying to say that no one reads these publications. As life-long learners, many Mensa members are avid readers — not to mention original thinkers and/or unafraid doers — so we provide a wide and international selection of reading opportunities.
