Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Think about the last time you tried to change someones mind about something important: a voters political beliefs; a customers favorite brand; a spouses decorating taste. Chances are you werent successful in shifting that persons beliefs in any way. In his book, Changing Minds, Harvard psychologist Howard Gardner explains what happens during the course of changing a mind – and offers ways to influence that process.

Remember that we dont change our minds overnight, it happens in gradual stages that can be powerfully influenced along the way. This book provides insights that can broaden our horizons and shape our lives.

Book News Annotation:

Drawing on his innovative thinking on multiple intelligences (e.g, Frame of Mind) and his own experience, the Harvard psychologist presents a new framework for analyzing "levers" that trigger/thwart changes of mind exemplified by historic and current change agents in diverse fields.
