From School Library Journal
Grade 6-9-Armstrong believes that by helping kids identify their strengths they will be able to know themselves better and make the most of their talents. To this end, he devotes one chapter to each of the intelligences that psychologist Howard Gardner has identified but phrases them in terms that young readers will understand; for example, he uses "word smart" for linguistic intelligence and "picture smart" for spatial intelligence. Each chapter begins with a quiz to help readers determine in what ways they are "people smart," "logic smart," etc. The text that follows discusses what these intelligences are, lists ways to develop or improve them, and suggests possible careers for people with different strengths and interests. An annotated bibliography at the end of each chapter lists books, magazines, organizations, and Web sites. Occasional blue spot-art cartoons illustrate the text. A self-help book that's clear, concise, and fun to peruse.

Gr. 5-8. Without talking down to preteens, psychologist Armstrong simplifies the psychological theory of multiple intelligences. He helps readers discover the different ways they are smart, and he encourages them to explore and improve how they learn at school, at home, and "everywhere you go." One chapter at a time, he covers eight different intelligences--word, music, logic, picture, body, people, self, and nature--and talks about what they mean in a kid-friendly style. Aptitude quizzes, succinct explanations, entertaining sidebars, and "Did You Know?" trivia personalize the text with examples, anecdotes, and lively suggestions for developing one kind of intelligence by using the strengths of the others. The highly readable design, with lots of screens, subheads, and two-color illustrations, makes each page great for careful reading and discussion or just for browsing. Each chapter includes resources and Internet sites. Roger Leslie

And although it was written for kids I think teens and adults of all ages would find this book insightful and fun. And teachers would find it invaluable. It not only helps you figure out what multiple Intelligent catagory your strengths fall under, but it shows you how to use those strengths to help you strengthen the categories you struggle in.
