Criminal Genius : A Portrait of High-IQ Offenders Hardback
For years, criminologists have studied the relationship between crime and below-average intelligence, concluding that offenders possess IQ scores 8-10 points below those of non-offenders.
Little, however, is known about the criminal behavior of those with above-average IQ scores.
This book provides some of the first empirical information about the self-reported crimes of people with genius-level IQ scores.
Combining quantitative data from 72 different offenses with qualitative data from 44 follow-up interviews, this book describes the nature of high-IQ crime while shedding light on a population of offenders often ignored in research and sensationalized in media.
