Is Intelligence an Algorithm? The book

My book "Is Intelligence an Algorithm?" will be published on 26-1-2018 by iff-books. This book is a must for anyone who would like to improve his/her intelligence. The book starts with an overview how in Nature evolutionary complexity is arrived at via an inherent sequence of steps, which you could call an algorithm. Then the book analyses different aspects involved in human intelligence such as (re)cognition, reasoning and problem-solving. The role of emotions and how to control them is also discussed. Three chapters are dedicated to artificial intelligence. The book concludes with the more elusive aspects of intuition.

Here is the "Marketing Blurb":

Do you wish to improve your intelligence? Then we’ll first have to figure out what “intelligence” actually is.
Join me on a journey that starts with Nature’s ways to generate complexity. I will show you that from bacterial wisdom to the quagmire of human social interactions the same steps are followed to generate so-called “meta-system transitions”, where singleton entities organise into societies and finally into new emergent entities built there from.
In this book I will not only dissect intelligence into elements of cognition, pattern recognition, reasoning, problem-solving and diversity generation, I will also venture into the more elusive realms of emotions and intuition.
From these concepts I will provide strategies, heuristics and architectural plans to create a new generation of Artificial Intelligence. A conceptualisation of Artificial Consciousness and a blueprint for an Artificial Webmind.
And as a bonus I will provide you with tools. Tools to organise your thoughts, tools to solve any kind of problem, tools to navigate through the wild waves of our emotions.
This is the abstraction of the dissecting knife of the intellect and the great integrator of cliques allowing to spawn a plethora of novel and inventive solutions which are screened and pruned to generate an apotheosis of ever increasing complexity.
This is the book that reveals nature’s inherent simple algorithm to achieve complex goals in complex environments.
