Typical texts develop students' knowledge while only minimally developing the general skills they will need for success in school and in life. The goal of our text is to assist students in acquiring the most important skills for facing the diverse challenges life presents. The book contains an overview of theories of intelligence, but itself is based in large part on a theory according to which individuals need creative skills to generate new ideas and a vision for the future, analytical skills to make sure that the vision is a good one, and practical skills to execute the ideas and to persuade other people of their value. The book considers key skills in problem solving, logical reasoning, analysis of arguments, knowledge acquisition, creative and practical thinking, automatizing information processing, and avoiding life traps that derail even the most intelligent among us.

MEDIA 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
