Academics know Howard Gardner as the John H. and Elizabeth A. Hobbs Professor of Cognition and Education at the Harvard Graduate School of Education. Readers perhaps know him better as the MacArthur Award winning author of education bestsellers including Multiple Intelligence, The Unschooled Mind, and Intelligence Reframed. Both constituencies will be gratified by Dr. Gardner's incisive new examination of the search for truth in the cacophony of new media opinion and competing "expertise." Articulating what many feel, he notes how our understanding of truth, good, and beauty are constantly bombarded and undermined by political, commercial, and tabloid interests. Gardner's writing skills and his keen sense of the changing information playing field make this a extraordinarily timely addition to his distinguished career.
