Format: Paperback
I have read many books on the subject of parenting gifted children and trying to meet their academic needs -- this is one of the better ones, and certainly one of the most practical. It will help parents navigate the school system and advocate for their child's educational needs. Reading this book was like talking to a friend who has "been there." It is full of good reference/resource advice and is easy to read.

Smutny covers the basic concepts and issues facing the families of gifted kids. Better yet, she provides concrete, detailed strategies for parents as they negotiate the best possible education for their gifted children. Lots of real-life stories, lots of nuts-and-bolts advice, right down to the questions to ask and the things to _avoid_ saying.

Format: Paperback
Not a very large book, only 190 pages, but chock-full of crucial advice and helpful perspectives. The layout is friendly on the eye, but I never felt like I was cruising through a bunch of bullet points. The author knows how to write. I am so very happy that I got my hands on this.

As parents, we are our children's best and sometimes, only advocates. This book supports everything a conscientious parent already thinks. It is a great source for new ideas for handling new or difficult situations.
