Editorial Reviews

Mark Snyderman
Describes hundreds of studies worldwide that show a consistent pattern of human racial differences.
National Review
Glade Whitney
If the mavens of political correctness could enforce an index librorum prohibitorum, then you would not be allowed to read this book. —Contemporary Psychology
Deborah Stevenson
The author's "thesis is that separate races of human beings evolved different reproductive strategies to cope with different environments, and that these strategies led to physical differences between races, including differences in brain size and hence in intelligence. Human beings who evolved in the warm but highly unpredictable environment of Africa [are said to have] adopted a strategy of high reproduction, while human beings who migrated to the hostile cold of Europe and northern Asia took to producing fewer children but nurturing them more carefully." — The New York Times
Richard Lynn
Should, if there is any justice, receive a Nobel prize. -- The Spectator
