    “Sternberg and Kaufman have assembled nearly all of the foremost intelligence researchers and theorists to produce an absolutely essential volume for anyone who wants to understand the nature – and nurture – of intelligence in its many forms. It is the most thorough, authoritative, and readable sourcebook on the science of intelligence that I have ever seen.”
    – Joshua Aronson, New York University, editor of Improving Academic Achievement

    The Cambridge Handbook of Intelligence is an extraordinary achievement. Comprehensive, engaging, inspiring, and at times provocative, it leaves no stone unturned – no aspects of intelligence and its consequences unexplored. What is intelligence? Where does it come from? Can it be developed, and if so, how? If you are looking for answers to questions like these, there is no better place to find them than from the world-renowned experts in this remarkable volume.”
    – Heidi Grant Halvorson, psychologist, author of Succeed: How We Can Reach Our Goals

    "...Sternberg and Kaufman brought together a group of scholars and theorists with the expertise and knowledge to compile an important contribution to the field of intelligence studies. This volume consolidates decades of research and theory into an accessible volume.... well-organized and coherent.... offer an excellent resource.... This book would be an excellent addition to the collection of any scholar with an interest in intelligence and a must have for new scholars in the field. I will be recommending this text to our university library so that it may be a resource for my colleagues and our graduate students."
    – Professor Christopher A. Was, Kent State University, PsycCRITIQUES
