Book Review

pp. 74—75

The purpose for writing this book was to raise questions about the “nature of people” and to question the concept of“IQ.” The book is provocative and highly readable. Dr. Fuller questions both the descriptive and predictive validity of the IQ as a construct and intelligence tests as its physical embodiment.Her conclusions rest upon the results she obtained with 26 retarded students aged 11 to 48, having measured IQs from 28to 72.
