Leveraging all three approaches, he comprehensively demolishes blank-slate ideas that intelligence doesn't really differ between individuals, genders and/or ethnic groups, and shows that intelligence differences (as measured psychometrically or in life outcomes) have measurable correlates neuro-anatomically and genetically.
Since higher IQ correlates positively with desirable life outcomes, he is a strong proponent of research which might lead to future IQ improvements, either through some kind of 'IQ pill' or targeted allele-engineering.
Haier is plainly an experimentalist, not a theoretician. He is happiest explaining the details of studies, neuro-imaging equipment and brain images: he's almost too thorough. He is also good on the unexpected results: when men and women with identical (and high) mathematical abilities were scanned while solving advanced math problems they were equally successful - but the men used the spatial parts of their brain while the women were using verbal modules.
While we are plainly in the middle of a technology-led revolution (well-described at an introductory level) it's frustrating that the jury is still out on all the important questions. We don't know what the brain is doing which distinguishes consciousness from unconsciousness; we don't really know how the high-IQ brain differs in structure or function from the low-IQ brain although there are some suggestive ideas; we don't know how to alter/improve IQ by any well-attested intervention.
Perhaps this will change over the next few years. Given the stigma which still attaches to intelligence research in the West, perhaps we'll have to wait for the Chinese to tell us.
Required knowledge would likely include a basic grasp of experimental and statistical methods and a rough comprehension of functional neuroanatomy. I’ve done a little informal reading on these topics and that was adequate in helping me understand this book.
I enjoyed reading it and would advise people to watch Dr Haier’s contribution to ‘The Great Courses’- which is essentially a series of filmed presentations explaining the material in the book almost word-for-word, and is available (at the time of this review) on YouTube.
