James Baldwin and the Queer Imagination

The Intelligence Paradox: Why the Intelligent Choice Isn't Always the Smart One

Overall, I found the book to be an enjoyable read. Author Satoshi Kanazawa begins by positing that a sort of inflationary trend has taken hold among academic psychologists, who, uncomfortable with some of the contrasts and divisions that psychometric testing has revealed among different groups of individuals, have attempted to broaden the definition of "intelligence" to be far more inclusive. This mindset, he argues, arises from a te...
