In order to become an evil genius, you will need several things. First, and foremost, is the desire to be evil. Of course this is also entirely optional. You could just become a regular genius. I would recommend this as it will probably turn out better for you in the long run. Second, is a vast knowledge of science. You might be able to come up with a magnificent plan for a doomsday machine, but you won’t be able to build it unless you know the science to make it work. Third, and least important, is a secret lair. For now your bedroom or tree house will do, but in the future you should look into something like a dormant volcano. I’ve heard these work well. Now that you know what is required, here are a few books to get you started.
