The Mismeasure of Man helps explain the insanity of trying to measure intelligence, from the beginnings of the “science” of testing to our contemporary dilemma of testing everyone all the time. It helped make me skeptical of just about any measurement humans develop, from actual measurement (which is only important if one has capital to invest abstractly) to “normal” anything.
