In this provocative and accessible book, Michael Howe exposes serious flaws in our most widely accepted beliefs about intelligence. He shows that crucial assumptions are simply wrong and have had destructive social consequences. IQ is real enough, but the common idea that a quality of intelligence is the underlying cause of people′s differing abilities is based on poor science as well as faulty reasoning.
Offering a powerful case for a better understanding of human intelligence, IQ in Question 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.
