Review

Review from previous edition: "Mackintosh's new book is to be welcomed: it is comprehensive, up-to-date, well-informed, critical, and manages to offer a balanced introduction to the study of intelligence." --Swiss Journal of Psychology, v.59 no.3, Sep. 2000

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Masterful survey of the latest theoretical and experimental literature on the measurement of human intelligence at all levels from the sensorimotor to the cognitive. Very balanced discussion of controversial issues and superb bibliography. Mackintosh's thoughtful use of diagrams and tables of numerical data in addition to carefully phrased verbal explanations suggests that he is a whole-brain learner and is very helpful in aiding the reader's understanding of complicated issues. This book sets the new standard for general textbooks about IQ testing and has been adopted for the IQ testing course at several top universities. Every person who has ever paid for an IQ test or decided how to educate someone based on an IQ test should read this book at the earliest opportunity.

4 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Justin M on April 14, 2013
Format: Paperback
Dr. Mackintosh does a great job throughout IQ and Human Intelligence of presenting both sides to the argument and providing enough research details to allow readers to make their own conclusions of the implications of various studies. The book was relatively comprehensive, with the exception that, I think, it would be interesting to see some research on whether certain intense IQ improvement techniques are effective. At any rate, I learned a lot of very interesting information from the book. Quality writing and analysis throughout.

I used the previous edition of this book for a college course I teach, and I was going to use this version also, but the print is so small I just can't read it.
