About the Author

--This text refers to the hardcover edition.


"Anyone looking for an up-to-date, comprehensive, and balanced overview of research on human cognitive abilites from a classical perspective would do well to scrutinize Intelligence and Human Abilities. Colin Cooper's volume covers all of the key ropics, including definitions, factor structure, antecedents, processes, and applications, The treatment is concise, lucid, and even-handed." - K.V. Petrides, London Psychometric Laboratory, Personality and Individual Differences

"This book needs to be on 'required' reading lists of psychology students and those in related disciplines. It would also be read with profit, albeit perhaps with dissatisfaction, by those who who prefer to dismiss this important field of psychology as pseudo- science. The 'take home message' is that, 'Few theories in psychology have stood the test of time as well as the psychology of human abilities' (p.217). Reader beware: Cooper's book is likely to charm you into knowing far more about the science of intelligence and cognitive ability than you ever thought possible or appropriate!" - Philip Corr, Professor of Psychology at City Unoversity London, The Psychologist

"Coopers offers a solid introduction to and overview of human intelligence and looks at the available empirical evidence for various theoretical approaches to understanding individual differences in people's ability both to learn and to think abstractly... Those looking for a compact introduction to psychological theory and research conerning intelligence will find it here."-D. S. Dunn, Moravian College, CHOICE

"This book gives an accessible, comprehensive overview of human intelligence: what it is, how we test it, its social and biological origins, and its relevance to everyday life. An essential read for the student of individual differences or for people who want to get up to speed on this, at times, controversial topic." - Michelle Luciano, Department of Psychology, University of Edinburgh, UK

"Intelligence and Human Abilities is an update of the author's 1999 book Intelligence and Abilities. The book provides a fairly thorough and organized review of applicable research regarding the study of abilities, with a particular focus on intelligence." - Michael A. McDaniel, Intelligence
