Markman has written a book on the subject, Smart Thinking, that differentiates between raw intelligence, and the act of using intelligence to understand memory, learn effectively, and use knowledge to accomplish goals. He argues that smart thinking can be cultivated through a multidisciplinary understanding of behavior, language, learning science and philosophy.
