Bartholomew, David J. (2004) Measuring intelligence: facts and fallacies. Cambridge University Press, Cambridge, UK. ISBN 9780521544788
This book penetrates the thicket of controversy, ideology and prejudice surrounding the measurement of intelligence to provide a clear non-mathematical analysis of it. The testing of intelligence has a long and controversial history and whether intelligence exists and can be measured still remains unresolved. The debate about it has centered on the "nurture versus nature" controversy and especially on alleged racial differences and the heritability of intelligence.
