Renowned for his work on "multiple intelligences", which stresses the variety oftypes of intelligence rather then the narrow model represented by IQ tests, Gardner here examines the ordinary development and then the rarer case of extraordimnary development. He draws on case-studies of Mozart, Freud, Gandhi and Virginia Woolf to illuminate four types of exceptional achievements, and shows how these abilities can be exploited by us all in maximising our own creativity and achievements.
