"The value of Frames of Mind is less in the answers it proposes than in the problems it poses. They are important problems, and time spent thinking about them will be time well spent."―The New York Times
"Timely, wide-reaching and in many ways brilliant....[Gardner's] effort to bring together the data of neurology, exceptionality development, and symbolic-cultural skills is not only heroic but it makes extremely evocative reading."―The New York Review of Books
"Mention Howard Gardner's name to a growing cadre of educators and the response verges on the reverence teenagers lavish on a rock star. The cult of Gardner began....with his book Frames of Mind."―Newsweek
"Because of [Frames of Mind] Gardner is both lionized and exploited as one of the most famous educational theorists in the world. His notion of multiple intelligences-including the idea that musical, athletic, and other talents are separate from, but as important as, high SAT scores-has inspired scores of books, journal articles, conferences, and lesson plans for public schools."
―The Washington Post

Of course that this approach challenges the widely accepted (in the US mostly) IQ scores, because it shows that these tests focus only in one of the multiple intelligences,logical-mathematical in this case, and not all. So, they reach to a wrong conclusion of the individual's potential.
kids have an amazing potential waiting to be revealed and the only way to do it is to understand personally all the "Frames " that form your children hidden capacity and potential.
When you read the book you realize and understand a lot of reactions and the effect of your knoledge over their learning skills.
The book is oriented to teachers, but who could better teach our own children than us.
