5.0 out of 5 stars A compelling "must read" book., 11 Jan. 1999
By A Customer
This review is from: Bell Curve: Intelligence and Class Structure in American Life (A Free Press Paperbacks Book) (Paperback)
This book turned my head around as much as any book I've read since Atlas Shrugged. To me, one of the surprises is how easy this book is to read; the math is simple and clearly presented and the writing is smooth and linear. The book is shocking and makes me wish things were different, but, as the authors eloquently point out, wishing something was true does not make it so. We are far better off being honest with ourselves and applying public policy in a way that helps with the real problems we face. Absolutely, this book must be read, argued, and thought about because, love it or hate it, the future depends on us making rational decisions and developing public policy that improves our society instead of allowing society to tear itself apart at the seams. Buy it, read it, think about it.
