Overall, a valuable addition to the field and an essential book for counselors' professional libraries.
As a word of caution, this guide is simply a point of reference. While the research quoted within in mainly of recent date, you will still have to search out the original research cited for a greater understanding of the relevant material. If you as a counselor or even as a parent are looking for a guide to understanding the differing needs of gifted children (who are all quite different in their needs and challenges), this is the perfect place to start. It is full of the research, figures, and examples needed to find the information sought after. The collection of research that this book represents on the challenges of gifted children in the education system (both academically and personally) is excellent. I would highly recommend it as a reference book for professionals and non-professionals alike.
I received this book through a giveaway at LibraryThing.com in exchange for an honest review. The opinions in this review are my own.
