I agree that "Art, Mind, and Brain : A Cognitive Approach to Creativity" is a very good book. Howard Gardner always writes in such a readable style.

I would like to recommend one of my favorites that is also one of his latest books: "Creating Minds : An Anatomy of Creativity Seen Through the Lives of Freud, Einstein, Picasso, Stravinsky, Eliot, Graham, and Gandhi".

I saw Dr. Gardner on Charlie Rose, and the reason I decided to read it was the way he explained that he selected these people as archetypes(my word) for the several intelligences he has told us about in his other books. He said he wanted to focus on the ways the different intelligences expressed themselves in creative adult lives.

Have a great day,

Gardner is very interesting and also is the father of MI theory. (Multiple intelligence theory).
