's review

liked it

I appreciate the theory, but the book is a tedious read for the layman. The book is really geared towards psychologists or educators.

Also, I feel like Gardner doesn't differentiate enough between an "intelligence" and an "aptitude." Like, some people just have a "knack" for something, and it seems a little grandiose to build an entire theory about that. (Although, to be fair, he has an entire chapter in the beginning where he tries to explain the difference, but I was a little unconvinced...)
