In humane and colloquial language, Dr. Levine explains that intelligence is more complex and broad than what is measured by psychological tests. He describes a set of life skills that are neurologically determined and that people take for granted, such as paying attention, coordinating physical space, and organizing words in a thematic context. When not recognized as deficits, handicaps in these skills can be seen as lazy or oppositional. While the recording has both extraneous sounds and clicking voice sounds, the audio is still a wonderful showcase for the gentle, lucid writing of this innovative psychiatrist/teacher. T.W.
