It's still a very engaging and informative read in 2020. I have a psychology degree yet still learned a lot from this book. But they take great care to explain their points and arguments so any layman can easily read it too.
It's a very strong book about intelligence overall and comes highly recommended. A great intro for anyone out there and you don't need to read all chapters to learn from it.
