For people interested in learning more about multiple intelligences without the lengthy sentences and academic verbosity, this is a great book. Not only is it simple in its text, but it's also fun to read because of the exercises and tests included for each intelligence. You learn that in real life there is no one true way to label a "smart" person, and for the more unconventional and unusual among us this is good news. You can realize and apply your talents to everyday life, and try to develop the intelligences in which you are not as strong. So when you look at your old high school report cards or college transcripts and groan loudly in disgust, throw them in the trash and read this book.
