chapter focuses on various states of mind, how our memory works, why we
forget things, the debate over intelligence and intelligence testing, and
the power of the mind to control states of relaxation and hypnosis.

all come to mind. All of these things should be taken into
consideration when learning about states of mind and how to control them.
