    1. I really appreciated the focus on advocacy and working together as a team with your gifted child's teachers and other providers in this book. I myself can be rather skeptical of gifted programs, since I've seen how much they segregate by race and class. But this book operates from the premise that gifted education is important, since it's addressing needs the parents and kids have, and I appreciate that.The book spends a lot of time on perfectionism, underachievement, and other social-emotional [...]


    2. Excellent book! This is a short easy read that I recommend not just for parents, but for any adult that comes into contact with gifted students. It allows you to better see and understand the point of view of children that think differently. I've been teaching for 17 years and wish I had read this earlier in my career. I would have been better prepared to support students that don't always fit "in the box". This will definitely help me grow as an educator.


    3. I have not read this book but based on its description and reviews of it, I would like to. My 4 year old son will be starting at a public school kindergarten soon and I want to help ensure he gets the best education possible there. I have no doubt my son falls within the "gifted" category. I want to read this to know what I'm talking about when I relate to his teachers and administrators at his school.


    4. This book is so helpful for parents (and teachers) of gifted children! As I read through this book, I recognized my child in so many of the descriptions. It's nice to know that other children share the same tendencies and also how to handle certain things that come up with gifted kids. Every child is unique and the authors of this book recognize that. This book has inspired me to continue reading and educating myself on the nature of gifted children as it pertains to my own family.


    5. After our son was tested for a gifted program, the tester brought me back into the room and handed me this book. He told me, quite sternly, that I needed to read this book. A year later and I have. It's an interesting read and I believe I will come back to it in the years to come as I need guidance guiding my son through life.


    6. A book that gives a good overview of the general issues in dealing with gifted kids. A bit dated (1991), but much of the discussion still resonates for us. Like many parenting books, you'll take what you can from it and read others.


    7. The book doesn't go into much depth. Many of the how's and whys won't be answered in this book, but it is a good overall synopsis into parenting a gifted child. This book is a nice springboard for parents just beginning the process of patenting a GT child.


    8. This book really helps parents see that their child isn't the only child doing some of these random things that seem so different from others around them. This makes gifted kids finally seem normal and helps parents advocate for thier child.


    9. This book is extremely accessible with a very clear writing style. Not the most in depth book about gifted children and how to understand them but it does provide a good overview.



    10. Great intro/overview book for those folks seeking to learn about their gifted children and how to support them.


    11. Very helpful as a parent and a teacher. Will be a great benefit in the classroom and helping to get things in placed kids.
