Chapter 1 of our text discusses Howard Gardner's special intelligences -- here's a good book review in the NY Times discussing spatial intelligence.

The book, incidentally, is titled Where Am I? in its Canadian publication. Why do you think the title was changed for the U.S.? The reviewer, Jonah Lehrer (one of my newest favorite authors) thinks he knows the answer. Do you agree?
