Mental improvement books

What books of this kind have people read? What do you think of them?

I've read a lot of the Tony Buzan books (mind-mapping, memory improvements etc.) and generally I've found them very enlightening. A search on Amazon reveals all sorts of other books making interesting claims, such as increasing your power with numbers.

The goal of this experiment is that the classical Greek text entered within the <textarea> can be cut/copied/pasted to other browser windows — or to any application that supports Unicode text.

Side-effects of learning latin/greek

Has anyone noticed while learning one of the two languages, that their general usuage of grammar has become noticable?

For example, I sometimes find myself stoping and thinking about how I am going to write or say something. Even reading general material from different sources, I seem to find myself finding mistakes in other peoples grammar. I seem to sound more like my english teacher from way back in school.
