Reviews

"This is a gem of a book and a fitting honor to a distinguished scientist and scholar..." -INTELLIGENCE "...there is much of value in this book. There are succinct and authoritative reviews on a variety of topics—reaction time and inspection time, the molecular genetics of IQ (or g?), the causes of the correlation between brain size and IQ, education and intelligence, the predictive value of g (as opposed to subsidiary factors!) for job selection, the worldwide association between crime and IQ. It is entirely appropriate that a book intended as a tribute to Arthur Jensen should contain such a wealth of solid empirical information on such a wide variety of topics." -INTELLIGENCE
