it was amazing

Very eye-opening. Every parent who has quirky or intense kids should read this. And copies that are worn from use need to be on every teacher's shelf. The main idea: Being bright is not the summation of giftedness. It is pervasive; it effects almost every aspect of a gifted child or adults life - from the way they interact with people, to the way they learn, to the way they behave and experience emotions. The idea that gifted people have it easier than the rest is a myth - and a potentially damaging mindset for a parent or teacher of a gifted child to have.
