The Essential Sternberg : Essays on Intelligence, Psychology, and Education Paperback / softback

Edited by James C. Kaufman, Elena L. Grigorenko


Sternberg's experiment has generated a significant amount of buzz in the college admissions world and has been the subject of recent newspaper articles in ""The Guardian"" (UK), ""The Boston Globe"" and ""Inside Higher Education"".

Dr. Robert J. Sternberg is one of the most vocal critics of ""the intelligence testing industry"" which defines intelligence rather narrowly (i.e., a high score on a paper and pencil intelligence test).

For nearly 30 years, Dr. Robert J. Sternberg has been recognized as one of world's leading authorities on human intelligence and intelligence testing.

This is a handy compendium of many of Sternberg's most important and influential articles from his thirty-year career.It will provide an introduction and overview of his theories on intelligence and education, and highlight some of his most important articles from a large and disparate output.

Beyond it's inherent interest to psychologists, the book will be a useful summary for those people outside of academia who want an overview of Sternberg's views, including politicians, policy makers, teachers, and administrators.
