it was amazing

Around 25% of gifted people are misdiagnosed with a disorder according to a quote in a newspaper by James T. Webb. His wording did not say "25% of those who visit a psychologist", so visiting a psychologist as a gifted person could be quite hazardous without this book. This book is like a survival guide for anyone who has or *might* have a high IQ. I believe everyone of that description needs to have a copy accessible.

Gifted people are nothing like the common myths about them. They're not all successful, they're not all intellectual, and they're often pretty eccentric. The genetic differences that result in learning differences also cause other differences. Our genes are not orderly, modular components. Genetics is messy. This book rises to an incredibly hard challenge and does an excellent job of helping to sort out the difference between harmless eccentricity and trouble.
