In the Handbook of Understanding and Measuring Intelligence distinguished scholars Oliver Wilhelm and Randall W Engle have assembled a group of respected experts from two fields of intelligence research--cognition and methods - to summarize, review, and evaluate research in their areas of expertise. Each chapter presents the state-of-the-art in a particular domain of intelligence research, illustrating and highlighting important methodological considerations, theoretical claims, and pervasive problems in the field.

The Handbook is designed for academics and psychology professionals interested in intelligence, cognitive abilities, educational testing and measurement, reasoning and problem solving. It can also be used by advanced undergraduate and graduate students studying intelligence or the psychology of individual differences.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"This volume provides an in-depth yet accessible and up-to-date review of the key topics pertinent to current intelligence research. This state-of-the-art summary about our theoretical understanding of human abilities and their measurement is of interest for researchers, practitioners, and advanced students in psychology, education, and related disciplines. It's a great summary and a good read on a truly important topic."

-- Dr. Heinz Holling

"Wilhelm and Engle have compiled a highly informative set of chapters on various topics related to intelligence. The chapters describing recent European work will be especially informative for North American readers. The work is strengthened by provision of review chapters that keep the reader in sight of the forest rather than the trees."

-- Earl Hunt
"...it is extremely useful and contemporary, covering among its five hundred pages, genetics, neuro-imaging and emotional intelligence. It also provides a good indicator of current psychological work in the area with empirical evidence and theory sitting alongside each other. The material on meta-cognition would, I suspect, be of most interest to philosophers, along with the more basic questions concerning the nature of memory and intelligence."

-PRACTICAL PHILOSOPHY -- Robert G. Hill
