In 2024, Teachers College Press is issuing two volumes: The Essential Howard Gardner on Education (spring); The Essential Howard Gardner on Mind (fall). Covering work from several decades, each volume contains over two dozen articles, along with my autobiographical notes and up-to-date comments on the background, motivation, and impact of these publications.
For those interested in path-breaking work in education, psychology, and related fields, these books are indeed  Essential Reading.
Blurbs for Education volume: 
"A fascinating look at educational issues by one of our nation's finest and most creative academics. This is vintage Howard!"
―David C. Berliner, Regents Professor Emeritus, Mary Lou Fulton Teachers College, Arizona State University
"For more than 40 years, Dr. Howard Gardner has been one of―if not the―most influential scholar on the American educational system. It is thrilling to see a single volume that brings together Gardner's research and writings on educational institutions ranging from pre-K through the university. Readers who know Gardner best for his work on multiple intelligences theory will benefit tremendously from this exposure to his thinking on topics such as what it means to do good work, the purpose of a liberal arts education, and the role of social media in contemporary young people's development."
―Scott Seider, associate professor of applied developmental and educational psychology, Lynch School of Education and Human Development, Boston College
"The Essential Howard Gardner on Education offers a crisp distillation of Gardner's lasting contributions to our understanding of teaching and learning in a complex, ever-changing world. Whether you're a longtime fan or new to Gardner's work, this masterfully crafted narrative provides an accessible ove
