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.
