"Explores metaphors that have been used to illustrate the different theories of intelligence, discussing how these metaphors--and the theories they reflect--relate to one another." Science News "Sternberg's is an interesting and important book, and like most of Sternberg's writings it is clear, well-referenced, and suggestive." H. J. Eysenck, Personality Individual Differences "The book is an entertaining and argumentative one for the individual already conversant with the literature." American Scientist "...provides an integrative framework for comparing one theory to another. This is an important and original contribution...a major intellectual contribution to the field. I shall use it in my own research and teaching, and I urge others to do the same." Earl Hunt, Contemporary Psychology
