Patrick Wyman’s The Verge is out. I quite like it. And that’s pretty clear in my review for National Review, Europe on the Verge of a Revolutionary Breakthrough. I assume the main gripe someone might have is Patrick is too materialist. But if he covered all the bases the book would get out of control.
I talked to Patrick for over an hour for my podcast.
I have a review in UnHerd, Do genes determine intelligence? Both conservatives and liberals are ignoring the realities of biology. I didn’t pick the title. My review is on K. Paige Harden’s book to come out in September, The Genetic Lottery: Why DNA Matters for Social Equality. On the whole, it’s a worthwhile effort. To be frank I had some pointed critiques that ended up on the cutting room floor (the initial draft was 4,500 words).
Finally, also have a review of Charles Murray’s book in Quillette. I ended up reviewing the book because Quillette had a hard time finding anyone who would be willing to review it.
I ask this now and then: can you please review positively my podcast? (I notice someone negatively reviewed it because I “platformed” Charles Murray)
