Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"...the book succeeds admirably in its stated purpose. It provides a convenient and much-needed update that people in the various fields touched by the nature-nurture debate are bound to find informative." Susana Urbina, Contemporary Psychology

"If this book is any indication of what is to come we can look forward to a very exciting century in the study of intellectual development." David Henry Feldman, Roeper Review

"Although the various theories and proposals for greater diversity in intellectual gifts and talents, for greater social and cultural impact on these capabilities, and for dynamic, developmental approaches to questions of intellectual development have a long way to go in scientific terms, they have begun to chart the direction the field must take in its second century. Intelligence, Heredity, and Environment captures this period of transition with unprecedented fairness, clarity, balance, and quality." David Henry Feldman, Roeper Review

"Wahlsten and Gottlieb succeed in convincing the reader (at least this reader!) that however sophisticated a tour de force behavior genetics is, it fundamentally distorts the reality of how genes work." David Henry Feldman, Roeper Review
