ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's opinions regarding the problems that were encountered by professor Arthur Jensen in getting his book "The g Factor," published. "The g Factor," is a book that most academic publishers would like to publish. But none of the university publishing houses that Jensen approached were willing to publish his book. John Wiley & Sons Inc. refused to publish the book. The publishing companies are refusing to publish Jensen's not because they are scared, but because they think refusing is the right thing to do.
