"Once in a while a book comes along that captures an idea, a zeitgeist, so convincingly and articulately, that you know before you finish that it has already enriched the way you think about a topic...Measuring the Mind: Conceptual Issues in Contemporary Psychometrics by Denny Borsboom represents such a book."
