I'm writing this review just because I was stupefied at the aggregate score of 3 out of 5 for its Google ratings. So let me say this with emphasis:
This is the best science book that I've read so
far (I have read a few).
It's technical in parts, but hang in there: you will be rewarded by Gould's beautiful writing and by an expansive list of quotes.
The book tackles two assertions: that bigger brains mean more intelligent people (spoiler alert: they do not), and that differences in intelligence are purely inherited (spoiler alert: they are not). Gould spends some time to refute claims that these assertions were true that were published during the late twentieth century: in that sense, it might appear on the surface to be a book of its time, but as Gould explicates, the arguments are timeless and are always worth a good, solid debunking.
Highly recommended.

Great science book! Absolutely love! Describes perfectly the series of evolution and the fact of deference's between natural selection.
