Dr. Kathy Koch is the consumate teacher with this book. It's long overdue as she is a gifted speaker with a heart for validating the whole child. As a child who grew up in a home where everything had to be "perfect", I suffered with self esteem issues. Because of my people smarts, I was still "popular" but had I known the information in this book, it would have offered me the validation that I so needed at one of the most self conscious time of my life when I was comparing myself to my scholarly brother and sister. Because of this period in my life, I believe it has made me a better teacher of teenagers and I'm going to pair up my students more strategically in the future when working with partners. If you are struggling at home with a "difficult" child, read this book!!! Do it!!! You will understand your son/daughter and give them the grace and support they need in order to survive in this world that often measures only one or two types of intelligences and deems only those types as "smart". Be ready for a paradigm shift and also be open minded to change some of your parenting style!!! If you want your relationship to change with your son/daughter, it might not happen overnight but at least this book will get the ball rolling in the right direction. Way to go, Kathy Koch! Bravo.

It's a great book! I just got it on Kindle for a teenaged boy who was staying with us. It revolutionized the way my kids see themselves. I even used it as a theme for a youth group retreat. Highly recommended!

I read one review where the Christian viewpoint kept him from reading the rest of the book. I hope that doesn't throw anyone else. Even if you are not a Christian and find that off-putting, the power of this book goes beyond the religious persuasion. As a mother of three and youth pastor for more than 12 years I can tell you with confidence that kids today NEED the message of this book.

This book is a fabulous resource for anyone, not just for those involved with children! I'm 40 years old, not a parent nor a teacher, and I discovered many wonderful things about myself, how I'm smart, and about the people around me. I also learned that it's never too late to train my smarts, so I'm now working on growing my "body smart," which is my least-developed way of being smart. Read this book to learn how you are smart, and how you and the people around you, even if they're not children, can learn to grow the different smarts.

My son doesn't think he is smart because he is not word smart or logic smart. I have tried to convince him in the past but he didn't believe me. After reading this book now I am able to show him the areas that he is smart in, but also help him strengthen his weaknesses. It is so easy to say. "I'm not good at that," instead of working to improve the weak areas.

Dr. Koch has written an easy-to-read guide that emphasizes the varied abilities of children. She expands the conventional, narrow understanding of "smart" to include children who may not devour books or do well on tests. In this regard, her approach is helpful. She provides 8 categories of abilities and describes them in detail so that parents or educators can help those children within their influence understand and better use their "smarts."

Books of this sort, like personality testing, can be helpful if not used rigidly. People are complex. However, God doesn't gift all people with identical abilities, so reading Koch's book can help readers see the variety of talents and abilities present in ourselves and our children.
