My new book, In the Know: Debunking 35 Myths About Human Intelligence, is officially one month away from its October 29 release by Cambridge University Press. The book is currently available for pre-order from the publisher (use the checkout code “WARNE2020” to get a 20% discount!) and Amazon.com.

A handful of people have received copies of the book, and the response has been overwhelmingly positive. Here are some of the comments that I have received from eminent scholars in the field:

If I was King of the World, everyone would have to read this book. Those in the social sciences and education would have to read it twice. In the course of debunking myths, readers incidentally learn the truth about human intelligence. Even those who know intelligence research thoroughly will find this book worthwhile.

Douglas K. Detterman, Louis D. Beaumont University Professor Emeritus of Psychology, Case Western Reserve University, Ohio

This book systematically explains and then destroys 35 common myths about intelligence with some of the most compelling findings ever established in psychological research. I’d recommend it to students, educators, and anyone who ever wondered about what intelligence is and where it comes from. It should be required reading for every college major.

Richard J. Haier, Professor Emeritus, University of California, Irvine, author of The Neuroscience of Intelligence, and editor of the journal Intelligence

Russell T. Warne has performed an admirable feat of scholarship. Press a copy of his book into the hands of anyone you know who is in a position to influence public understanding and opinion.

James Lee, Assistant Professor, University of Minnesota

Read this book and take a thought-provoking journey through human intelligence. The author shatters many misconceptions people have about intelligence and reveals the unvarnished truth with compassion and clarity. This book is a ‘must’ for transformational leaders seeking to better understand the role of intelligence in education and society at large.

Joyce E. Juntune, Instructional Professor of Educational Psychology, Texas A&M University

To have so many colleagues that I respect give such glowing endorsements to the book is very encouraging. (This is in addition to the positive comments from the copy editor.)

If you’re still uncertain about the book, you can read the list of myths that the book addresses. Cambridge University Press has also released the first ten pages of the book online.
