Revealing and Insightful,
By A Customer
This review is from: Gifted Grownups: The Mixed Blessings of Extraordinary Potentials (Hardcover)
Her insight into gifted adults as people who need to learn more and faster, always needing new projects to avert boredom, and verbalizing creative, off-the-wall mental leaps that no one gets describes my experience accurately. I thought there was something wrong with me! I like her style, very straightforward, using her subject's stories in ways that move the text along rather than bog it down. No hint of pop psychology here thank goodness. I'm sending this book to a friend in Alaska who, like me, struggles with being different. I know she will find it interesting--it helps to define and clarify our sense that we are extraordinary in some way.
