Haier of the University of California, Irvine, you’ll trace the fascinating history of intelligence testing and its leading thinkers, as well as what brain imaging studies and the most recent research findings reveal about this most complex of human phenomena.

audio from a presentation

Great material, but difficult to follow because of references to images/diagrams not visible. Purchase returned

Excellent review of the Science

the only thing keeping this from being completely out of the park was the reliance on images, graphs & videos- not available in the audio version. They would have added a lot

Unnecessarily Visual Based Lecture

Great information, great professor, huge mistake by Audible production manager overlooking the fact the professor is regularly referencing visuals. This information would easily be expressed without needing images and graphs, but the professor clearly did not know Audible intended to repackage this as audio only.

This is just audio stripped from a video

This is just audio stripped from a video. The presenter repeatedly references visual examples that we can't see.
