"I was aware that each one of us have different talents and we should develop them the best we can. But I never thought that they were different types of intelligence, or "smarts" as the Author calls them. This book was really helpful to understand and identify the different types of intelligence we all have, the ones that are stronger and the ones we can improve. It also shows how we can interact and teach our children these smarts, which are the types of career linked to each smart and for me, the most interesting part was to know how is the best way that each smart can relate to God and serve others."
