    You're Smarter Than You Think: A Kid's Guide to Multiple Intelligences is about the multiple intelligence theory, first approached by Howard Gardner. Gardner critiqued the notion that there is only one human intelligence.Thomas Armstrong writes about 8 types of intelligence: musical–rhythmic, visual–spatial, verbal–linguistic, logical–mathematical, bodily–kinesthetic, interpersonal, intrapersonal and naturalistic. The book is very easy to read, so as to enable both adults and children to enjoy it.I recommend having this book in your library. It helps parents enhance their children's MI.

    Armstrong is a radical about education. This revolutionary book challenges us to think about lots of different ways children learn. It’s not reading, writing, and arithmetic anymore. Some time ago, Howard Gardner wrote about multiple intelligences. Maybe some school systems have picked up on this revolutionary idea. Armstrong translates Gardner’s ideas into action for the classroom. For example, some students excel at being Word Smart. Others are “Music Smart.” His radical idea: Intelligence in one mode of learning can be used to learn in another mode. Armstrong provides advice and resources for making this happen. Not every piece of advice will work with every student. However, there’s a bountiful array of ideas and strategies to make the book worthwhile. The problem with the book is its focus on students. Too often the analysis is too complex for young students who could best benefit from the book. Perhaps junior high students could benefit from it, assuming parental or other outside help. This book belongs in the hands of teachers and students in teaching prep courses in college. I would even suggest this book for college professors!

    I read this book when I was in junior high school. We often think that smart person is the one that gets 100 in math or the one that really good in science. This book made me realized that every person has their own intelligence, such as social skill,music,sport etc

    I was actually really impressed by the depth of this book. It's understandable to kids, but it doesn't talk down to them.

    It's a great theory . . . wish it were true. So-called 'researchers' (otherwise known as academics who need to publish something) push multiple intelligence onto an unsuspecting public and into our educational system and tout it as gospel.

    Enjoyed. I think it needs a test in it to help you know which intelligence you have. I have been very interested in this multiple intelligence. It has made me understand my dghts learning style. I use to think things she liked were very random and varied. Now I realize she is "picture- spatial" learner.

    This book is great! As a teacher, I am using it to help design a unit for the beginning of the year and throughout the year to help the children realize, there's more ways to be smart than just the reading and math way that school demands of them. It focuses on Gardner's 8 intelligences. The thing I like too is that it frames intelligence in our areas of strength, but also states that if you are not as smart in another way, it gives suggestions to help you improve your intelligence in that area. This idea of all of the intelligences being different, but equal and the notion that one can "get smarter" in other areas will be helpful to children. If we all realized this, we would value each other a lot more. My daughter read this book on her own and told me she really liked it. It is suppose to be a children's book, but really for strong readers in older elementary school, ideal for junior high school. Adults may find it really interesting too.

    I would like to recommend this book for anyone who are parents, teachers, educators. The book introduces various ideas to discover and nurture different intelligences that can be applied to children and self-improvement. Having acquired a particular intelligence can benefit someone expand his competence into other kinds of smart. The book reminds me a thought that the most talented persons are not those who are at their best of doing something but manipulate many different abilities to reach achievement.

    I think I liked the book more than my daughter did, but she uses some of the techniques described, and we ordered more books based on the extensive 'additional reading' list, so in the end, it didn't change our life, but it was worth reading.(I regret to say that the cover of the Spanish version is not quite aesthetically pleasing).

    đọc nhanh nhưng chắc đủ ý rồi, tất cả con người đều thông minh hết, hôm nay nhân tiện còn nhìn kĩ con gà và thấy nó ăn ngu quá haha (cúi mỏ uốn cổ xuống giữa hai chân để mổ khoai), và thấy quá đúng rằng là con người là loài vật bậc cao nhất nên thảm nào chẳng thông minh, tất cả, cố phát triển thêm nào
