About the book
GENES AND GENIUS will reveal for the first time to a general readership the existence of gene IGF2R, the gene for intelligence.
Robert Plomin's credentials to tell the story and implications of its discovery are impeccable: he leads the world's only research team hunting for intelligence genes. His team expects to find several more genes by the time the book is completed in June 2000.
This book explains clearly how the research was conducted and what its remarkable findings mean for society. It addresses the following questions, providing answers for each that are straightforward, controversial and clear:
-- How can something as complex as intelligence be reduced to a single gene, or a single IQ score?
-- Will this research cause people of low intelligence to be stigmatised?
-- Do genes for intelligence mean that educational attainments are pre-set at birth?
-- Will children - or even foetuses - be labelled and would that label be damaging?
-- Does this research open the way for the genetic modification of the human mind itself?
This book describes a scientific event that the whole world will be unable to ignore.
