Gifted is how a person is wired, not what a person produces.

Este libro es interesante como introducción y me ha abierto los ojos en muchos aspectos relacionados con las personas gifted, que en castellano se traduce por superdotada o persona con altas capacidades. Son conceptos y palabras que, la mayoría de veces, vienen cargadas de connotaciones negativas.

El libro está orientado a psicólogos o profesionales de la educación que quieran saber más sobre este campo tan estigmatizado y se nota,

This is a really terrific book! I'm really impressed at how much information has been packed into it, how accessible it is (without talking down to the audience), and how well the author has parsed the many key issues in the world of giftedness. Parents and mental health professionals with find this book incredibly useful. I look forward to gushing about it far & wide. I think it is a book that was badly needed and will really fill a niche.

I devoured this book. Don't let the tacky title throw you off (lol, I didn't expect much of it at first because of the "101" part). Every piece of information was incredibly valuable, insightful and backed by research. It helped me so much to understand myself better.

One thing which has helped me exceptionally is the visual-spatial learner concept. I have struggled so much in the education system which is based on step by step auditory-sequential learners. Learning about visual-spatial learning

Useful, but the book mentioned self-actualization a number of time and then spent very little time describing it or how to reach it.

Well written. Silverman makes an excellent presentation on why studying the gifted population matters, on how their inner world works, on how and why to test, etc. Even though I have read quite a bit on giftedness lately, I found new/better presented information in here. A book that all gifted teachers/psychologists ought read.

A must read if your child is gifted

Very well written and easy to read. The many references to resources was extremely helpful. I enjoyed reading this book and I look forward to the many joys and challenges of raising gifted children.

Informative overview

You should read this if you think you have a gifted child. Wish I'd read this years ago. Culturally, both in my adopted country and country of birth giftedness is seen as a sign of elitism,pushing yourself forwArd.moving past the labels is important

Easily the best book I've read on the topic so far. It's also more current than most of the material out there, more affordable, and available as an eBook.
