Getting Smarter

Yesterday, in his twice-weekly NYT Op Ed column, Nicholas Kristoff wrote about a “superb new book,” Intelligence and How to Get It, which disproves the notion that IQ is fixed in our genes and “also offers terrific advice for addressing poverty and inequality in America.” 

As a result of this ringing endorsement, the book rose from #496 to #39 on Amazon and is showing heavy reserves on light ordering in many libraries.
