Summary
"IQ scores have the power to determine the chances we have in life: the people we meet, the schools we attend, the jobs we get, the lives we live. Very few of us, however, understand what IQ tests and ratings really mean. In this book, Stephen Murdoch explains the turbulent history and controversial current uses of intelligence testing."--Jacket
