A science journalist presents a well-balanced overview of recent work in psychology and neurology, which attempts to describe and measure aspects of mental competence other than those reflected by traditional IQ tests. The enormous practical implications of these social and self-management skills are explored, and listeners who are dealing with any of a wide range of personal issues may find useful insights. Whitener has a clear, pleasant voice. His tone is an appropriate balance between animation and objectivity, so his reading is neither monotonous nor overcharged. Hearing this material read aloud doesn't offer any special insight or aesthetic reward; it's strictly a matter of convenience and preference. J.N. ©AudioFile, Portland, Maine [Published: SEPT 97]
