As an educator I feel this book is lacking some new and improved resources for tackling the issues facing high ability learners today. If you are beginning and need information then this is a great place to start ( )

Great book for someone who just happens to have a high ability child they are rearing, but also of interest to anyone with a school age child in their household. Lots of talent and thought in this book. Thirteen titled chapters, each written by a different expert in that field, All chapters are followed by extensive references. Many also list resources. Some additionally are followed with a summary and some with questions for discussion. I recommend this book for anyone with any interest whatsoever in education. It seems to me that person will find value in this book. Definitely have a look. ( )

This book is well organized, researched and wonderfully focused. The messaging is clear and easy to follow. Argumentation is coherent and not swayed by emotion. This will be a great addition to the syllabus of a college level course on educating children of a variety of academic inclinations. ( )

I liked this book and think that it was very informative and helpful. One thing I wish was in it was a list of schools in the U.S. that are suited to this style of learning. ( )
