IQ in Question

The Truth about Intelligence

by Howe, Michael J A

`Michael Howe has presented an accessible and thorough discussion of all aspects of IQ and intelligence. This book is an important counterweight to many prevailing myths' - Professor George Mandler, University of California, San Diego

This provocative account exposes serious flaws in our most widely accepted beliefs about intelligence that have influenced contemporary society. Michael Howe contradicts erroneous and destructive claims such as: IQ tests provide a measure of inherent mental capacities; intelligence and `race' are linked; IQ measures are good predictors of a person's success; intelligence cannot be changed; there is a `gene for intelligence'; and low IQ always means restricted capabilities.
