    1. 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.


    2. 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 [...]


    3. 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.


    4. A must read if your child is giftedVery 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.


    5. Informative overviewYou 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 forwArdving past the labels is important


    6. Fantastic book! This should be required reading in EVERY teacher education and psychology program. Excellent overview of giftedness and all that it encompasses.


    7. 4.5 STARSEasily 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.


    8. Linda Silverman has dedicated her life to improving the supports for the gifted. This is an excellent book for anyone expanding their understanding. Excellent for parents and educators.
