His short stature, sleepy eyes and undershot jaw made him an unconventional leading man, but unconventional was right for the times, and he became one of the princes of the "swinging London" scene. In that way he concurs with the "not proven" verdict of Eysenck and Jensen. What he doesn't expect is to find himself lost in the middle of the jungle in a hairy gorilla suit or meeting a real life Tarzan! However, he does not address the central issue, that Burt wrote scientific papers and published them as editor of a journal under false names and without the consent of the supposed authors. Yet, as for several papers by Burt, he acknowledges that this paper stimulated other studies on IQ and social mobility and these have confirmed Burt's conclusions.

In assessing the impact of Burt's later papers on science and educational policy, Mackintosh refers to his much earlier and very thorough review of Kamin's book, which I assume stimulated his interest in the controversy. Early in his career, Hemmings was a boy soprano appearing in operatic roles. Jensen writes: "A talented scientist who works largely alone makes a good many personal enemies.

He officially joined Mensa soon thereafter. His summary is what one might expect of a cautiously sceptical admirer of Burt but it clearly presents the issues that are considered in later chapters. This will help you to know whether you can trust the piece that you're buying.
