Our colleagues and friends have given their time and talents for a good cause – to write about individuals they believe will inspire gifted children, their teachers and parents to study with gusto and acquire the necessary knowledge for achieving their academic and life goals. “Heroes of Giftedness: An Inspirational Guide (2009) is an exciting new edition to gifted education literature. It well fulfills its purpose in the inspiring, exhilarating accounts of famous individuals and their contribution to the world. Gifted students, teachers, and parents will benefit hugely from these biographies of great men and women who overcame personal and professional challenges to move forward in their fields. The book is a singular compilation of biographies and offers many inside perspectives and anecdotal perceptions of heroes representing science, engineering, and inventing; medicine and biology; literature and poetry; art, dance, and the media. Role models abound. Gifted children and the adults who work with them will benefit from this compilation of heroes who are persons and distinct imparters to humanity. Maurice Fisher has done something wonderful for all of us in gifted education. We look forward to further editions.” Joan Smutny, Director The Center for Gifted National-Louis University
