With this entry, I hereby retire from reporting on the details surrounding Dr. James Watson’s race row. The subject of IQ and race may rage on in this blog, but it is time to move past the tabloid reporting. Fittingly, I felt that we should return to where it all began…with the release of a new book. Here is a review on Dr. Watson’s Avoid Boring People by Jerry Coyne, a geneticist at the University of Chicago. Dr. Coyne paints a complex picture of the author, and attempts to be rather candid, succeeding for the most part. In addition, he does not hide his obvious admiration for the man. You can feel free to contrast Dr. Coyne’s review with the opinion of another critic. No mercy given by that Nature editor.
