Reviews

"If you are interested in advice on how to improve your intelligence from the world's leading expert on the psychology of intelligence and his distinguished colleagues, then this book should be on your bookshelf." --Richard E. Mayer, PsycCritiques
"A new book by Robert Sternberg is an event to look forward to...., Applied Intelligence, written with James C. Kaufman and Elena L. Grigorenko, is a text intended for undergraduate and graduate students, and as such it is written in a style that is exceptionally accessible...., the book is thorough in its coverage, well structured, and potentially very useful for anyone looking for a good source of up-to-date information on the state of the science of theorising about and measuring cognitive capacity....a very worthwhile addition to the armory of those who seek to educate their students properly-as opposed to letting platitudes and cliches do the talking-about the concept of intelligence, its history and the applicability to daily life of many of the research findings it has generated." --Catherine Scott, Swinburne University of Technology, Australia, Education Review
