    You do not need to read this book. It says what’s already been better said before and elsewhere. Yes, being able to synthesize vast amounts of information will be very useful in the 21st century. Yes, being able to be creative in interdisciplinary ways could give you an edge. Yes, current educational methods aren’t that great at this and may stifle creativity. Any educator or student hoping for an edge by reading this self-aggrandizing piffle will be disappointed.

    I purchased this book on the basis of a number of good reviews. As a Ph.D. engineer, I have extensive experience reading boring texts in order to retrieve a few nuggets of valuable information. However, I could not force myself to get through this mind numbingly boring writing style. I’m sure it must be a good book based on the other reviews, but be prepared to suffer mental torture in attempting to read this book.

    We are fascinated by this book. It describes accurately the “learning areas” available to humans all over the world and the great need to tap all of them to succeed in the future starting now!. My wife, Dr. Maria Elena Marroco has dedicated all her professional life trying to discover HOW to achieve the education that fosters the Five Minds of Mr. Gardner’s. I joined her in her research in 1971. Finally, in 1990, we, actually, she, discovered how to do it. Unfortunately, school boards in the USA and other countries donot seem ready for this education yet. So we tried it with adults in all types of organizations with success. We would be thrilled to be able to talk to Mr. Howard Gardner and contribute, however little, with his endeavor. The book is everything we hoped to find in a book of this class.
