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.

I just read Mackintosh’s book, and I found it quite rewarding. I’m not a psychologist nor a psychology student, but I am greatly interested in issues surrounding human intelligence, IQ testing, what it can reasonably well tell us, and numerous other issues concerning human ability and its measurements. I found this book to deal in a very level-headed and defensible fashion with questions about what IQ tests measure, questions surrounding IQs of different ethnicities, etc.

As a non-professional, I found this book to be the best book I’ve yet read relating to IQ testing, measurements of human intelligence and such vital human concerns. I thought the author did a fine job of bringing out the pros and cons of most important questions about IQ testing and intelligence measurement. My own sentiments are such that I highly recommend the book for those who wish to educate themselves more about what human intelligence is, whether it can be effectively measured, whether such intelligence is genetically determined, and all such issues. One issue on which I was very considerably informed by this book is that of the awesome complexity of human ability and the possibility for measuring it. I had not previously realized just how complex an issue this is. It is bound to generate some head scratching for anyone earnestly searching for verifiable answers to questions concerning the nature of human intelligence.

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.
