Product description

Review

"I enjoyed reading this book. It is highly informative and interesting."––Alice Miller, author of Drama of the Gifted Child

"Many readers will recognize their own experiences..."––Lita Linzer Schwartz, Ph.D., ABPP, Distinguished Professor Emerita, Pennsylvania State University

"This book was a delight. It affirmed my own experiences and observations. The author makes her study come alive...through the voices of real people talking about their experiences.... I highly recommend this book."––Joanne Rand Whitmore, Ph.D., Professor and Dean, College and Graduate School of Education, Kent State University

From the Publisher

Reviewed in Library Journal (4/15/99):
"Debunking the myth that intellectually gifted people are either impractical social misfits or perfect specimens, Streznewski, a specialist in gifted education, presents a readable and poignant study of 100 people aged 18 to 90. Her criteria for inclusion were somewhat informal, based on the contemporary notion that intelligence is not merely a matter of high I.Q. However, a detailed set of indicators for giftedness was developed, and the study group included a wide range of individuals, from gifted women to senior citizens and criminals. Streznewski explores their experiences with schools, jobs, and in the social world. Lively personal narratives reveal how they adapt to their "oddball" status, determinants of their success or failure, and the structure of their high-powered interior lives."
