Abstract: Unless you are comfortable with terms like 'null hypothesis' and 'central tendency', this book most likely will be perceived as a politically incorrect attempt to reinstate old prejudices. But to the more statistically astute, the book is a controversial attempt to bring scientific study to bear on a topic which has been socially taboo.
Keywords: book review, sociology, psychology, education, measurement of intelligence levels, IQ, statistical evaluation, statistics, race relations, genetic correlates of intelligence, nature, nurture, social aspects, United States, educational psych.
