Currently the Vice President of the International Society for Philosophical Enquiry (ISPE) as well as featured writer for the Mensa International Journal, Hally takes an active interest in human intelligence in all its forms and applications. …Hally explores the science behind both human and artificial intelligence, even touching on animal intelligence to appease the animal lovers among us. By blending factual analyses with humor and plenty of background information to keep readers “on the right page,” Hally manages to render a potentially dry, dense subject more accessible. In fact, some of the most endearing qualities of this book are its frankness and careful accessibility. Each essay is prefaced with a helpful, yet non-condescending, introduction. It's an excellent gateway book for a novice who'd like an overview of general concepts of intelligence… Those who are well-versed in the area of intelligence study are likely to enjoy this book for the perspectives it offers. As such, I'd recommend this book to anyone having an interest in the topic of intelligence, regardless of the level of refinement of that interest. Definite thumbs up! —Shannon D.
