Howard Gardner and the "Good Works" team that crafted this work have given us hope for the future. In this time of disorientation caused by the creative destruction that is reshaping so many institutions this is the book our new generation of professionals desperately need. (Bill Kovach, Committee of Concerned Journalists, Columbia University)
As a member of one of the professions explored in Making Good, I found this work accurate--and alarming. Howard Gardner and his colleagues are best known for their writings about the many varieties of intelligence, but their recent provocative explorations of the meanings of work may prove equally important. I recommend this book to anyone concerned about how institutions can attract and support honorable future leaders. (James Fallows, author of "Breaking the News")
In Making Good, Howard Gardner, professor of cognition and education at Harvard, and researchers Wendy Fischman, Becca Solomon, and Deborah Greenspan capture the complex and often abstract values that shape people's professional goals and guide their decisions. (Laura Secor Boston Globe 2004-01-18)
Gardner and a trio of young researchers explore how young people in [journalism, genetic research, and theater] learn to become--or not to become--good workers. The result is a learned, thought-provoking, and accessible investigation of some of the most pressing issues of our time. (David B. Wilkins Harvard Magazine 2004-05-01)
