Review - What Is Intelligence?: Beyond the Flynn Effect

What Is Intelligence?: Beyond the Flynn EffectWhat Is Intelligence?: Beyond the Flynn Effect by James R. Flynn
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The original text, minus the new chapters for this version, are generally excellent and insightful, nicely critiquing prior analyses of the Flynn effect, suggesting that the growth between generations can be partially explained by systems that increase abstraction and classification of the surrounding world. The new chapters, although somewhat insightful, generally seemed muddled, both intellectually and editorially.
