Summary, etc.: "In Five Minds for the Future, Howard Gardner shows how we will each need to master the "five minds" that the fast-paced future will demand - from minds able to synthesize and communicate complex ideas to minds that can respect human differences and fulfill the higher responsibilities of work life and citizenship. Otherwise, we risk being overwhelmed by information, unable to succeed in the workplace, and without the judgment needed to thrive both personally and professionally." "Complete with a substantial new introduction, Five Minds for the Future provides valuable tools for those who are looking ahead to the next generation of leaders - and for each one of us who is striving to excel in our increasingly complex world."--P. [4] of cover.
