For years, criminologists have studied the relationship between crime and below-average intelligence, concluding that offenders usually possess IQ scores of 8 to 10 points below those of nonoffenders.

Little, however, is known about the criminal behavior of those with above-average IQ scores.

This book provides some of the first empirical information about the self-reported crimes of people with genius-level IQ scores.

Combining quantitative data from 72 different offenses with qualitative data from 44 follow-up interviews, James C.

Oleson describes the nature of crime by offenders of high IQ thereby shedding light on a population often ignored in research and yet sensationalized by media.
