Extraordinary Minds
Howard Gardner 1997. (Phoenix)
A fascinating read

‘A short but wide-ranging study of the psychology of exceptional achievement’
Sunday Telegraph
‘It is humane, intelligent and full of interest’ Sunday Times

Learn more about the exceptional minds of people such as Mozart, Freud, Woolf and Ghandi, and apply some of what you learn to the students in your class, especially the potential leaders. The beginning and end of it are particular relevant to teachers and the motivation behind the lives of the four people are fascinating. A very good buy, which will not only help you foster strengths in the children you teach but also makes you look at what motivates you!

This book shows how different intelligences can be observed in children at a very young age. A must for teachers who want to note the particular talents of students in their classes.
