FALLING BUT FULFILLED - Reflections on Multiple Intelligences (2010)
by Zachary M. Oliver
200 pp. 6" x 9" Softcover Tradebook
ISBN 9780984555277

Education reform has become one of the most hotly contested topics in America today. Rather than focus on test scores, federal or private funds, or political conflicts, Dr. Zachary M. Oliver has fashioned a unique memoir that takes a powerful learning theory, Multiple Intelligences (MI) Theory, and demonstrates, through the story of his life, from his childhood to his years as an educator, the ways in which education touches nearly every activity of our lives. In Falling but Fulfilled, Dr. Oliver demonstrates how learning is an integral part of life, not just a statistic or test score, that is felt and obtained through reflection on the vast array of experiences that constitute our lives.

About the author (2010)

Zachary Oliver continually searches for his ideal: balance. Originally from Vienna, Austria, a center for old European culture, he has chosen Honolulu, Hawaii, arguably the most geographically remote place on Earth to live and write. He has recently found his calling as an individual comfortable balancing the identity of a scholar-practitioner and as a leader of organizations that work to develop interested learners into successful professionals.
