Misdiagnosis and Dual Diagnoses of Gifted Children&hellip by James T. Webb
5 of 6 people found the following review helpful
Possibly the one irritating thing about being a true "outlier" is that some individuals mistake natural gifted/creative/intellectual behaviour for a plethora of conditions. Intensity and creative excitement becomes pathologised as "OCD", boredom due to having a significantly faster brain becomes pathologised as "ADD", natural introvert behaviour (which is strongly correlated with high IQ) becomes pathologised as "Asperger's", and so on.

Time Flashes: A Short History of Light and Sound by Michael Hutchison
I loved Michael Hutchison's books "Megabrain", "Mega Brain Power" and "The Book of Floating", and so was quite pleased to find a copy of "Time Flashes". This book was written in 1990, so if you're looking for the latest research in this field this won't be it. It comprises a compilation of articles from Hutchison's "Megabrain Reports", which are quite hard to find (I've only ever found issues 1 and 2 uploaded to the web). The articles have been chosen to document the history of light and sound entrainment. If you are interested in this fascinating subject and want a simple introduction that is not too long, then you'll like this little book.

I have read hundreds of books on brainbuilding and self-development, and I wouldn't lie to you when I say this is one of the most astonishing books I have read. Michael Hutchison is a journalist who set out to review the burgeoning developments in mind machine technology, and has put together his findings in this immensely readable and comprehensive book.

Hutchison explores such topics as the use of flotation tanks, ganzfeld technique, electro-neural stimulation, brainwave entrainment and light and sound machines. Each topic goes sufficiently into the science to make the topic interesting but doesn't give so much technical data to make the book inaccessible to the average reader… Read more
