CONCEPTS OF INTELLIGENCE
Thomas Hally explores the science behind the grand spectrum of human intelligence by blending factual analyses with humor and plenty of background information to keep readers "on the right page." Hally manages to render a potentially dry, dense subject more accessible. In fact, some of the most endearing qualities of this book are its frankness and careful accessibility. Each essay is prefaced with a helpful, yet non-condescending, introduction. It's an excellent gateway book for a novice who'd like an overview of general concepts of intelligence . . . Those who are well-versed in the area of intelligence study are likely to enjoy this book for the perspectives it offers. As such, I'd recommend this book to anyone having an interest in the topic of intelligence, regardless of the level of refinement of that interest. Definite thumbs up! -Shannon D. Moody, Diplomacy and International Commerce, M.A. French Language and Literature.
I know the author personally. His book is a compilation of high intelligence articles he wrote over a period of years. The articles cover many aspects of cognition, personality, and other facets of interest to those in the gifted category of human intelligence. His style of writing is clear and concise, and he does quite a bit of basic research for each article, making every paragraph ring with authority. This is a unique book for your thought life as well as for your personal library.
