Extraordinary Minds by Howard Gardner This is a thought-provoking book on what makes the kind of extraordinary person who changes the way we think, listen, write or view the world.

It looks at the lives and works of four extraordinary individuals: Wolfgand Amadeus Mozart, Sigmund Freud, Virginia Woolf and Mahatma Gandhi.

Howard Gardiner presents four types of extraordinary minds that he calls Master, Maker, Introspector, and Influencer. He then provides an example for each Mozart, Freud, Woolf, and Gandhi respectively.

Video: The Story of Stuff

The Story of Stuff: From its extraction through sale, use and disposal, all the stuff in our lives affects communities at home and abroad, yet most of this is hidden from view. The Story of Stuff is a 20-minute, fast-paced, fact-filled look at the underside of our production and consumption patterns. The Story of Stuff exposes the connections between a huge number of environmental and social issues, and calls us together to create a more sustainable and just world. It'll teach you something, it'll make you laugh, and it just may change the way you look at all the stuff in your life forever.
