Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...a well-edited work; its papers and bibliographies will be useful to graduate students and professional researchers." Choice

"Any attempt to bring these two diverse areas together in an edited volume is an ambitious undertaking, and the results, not surprisingly, vary from chapter to chapter. Fortunately, the chapters vary from very good to outstanding...I found all of the chapters extremely well written and informative." Gary Collier, The American Journal of Psychology

"...the chapters in this book in reviews, cogently argued and easily understood." Mike Anderson, The Times Higher Education Supplement

"...should be of interest to graduate students and professionals in the areas of personality, social, developmental, cognitive, cross-cultural, and educational psychology....This book is a useful source of ideas and proves that there are many connections to be drawn between personality and intelligence." Barbara A. Woike, Contemporary Psychology
