This highly successful and valued book, now in its Second Edition, is intended for parents and teachers of intense and sensitive young people and to serve the young people as a friendly mirror in which they can recognize themselves for who they are.
The author writes in his Preface: "The browsers, I hope, will find interesting things on any randomly chosen page or can select topics in the Table of Contents or the Index. The systematic readers who proceed from the beginning will find background stories on how the subject of this book came about and Heidi will illustrate 'overexcitabilities' to them. Beginning with Chapter 5, the voices of young experience are presented in numerous excerpts that continue throughout the book.
What is new in this edition? Chapter 4 introduces the concept of openness to experience that together with intuition and overexcitability forms the blend of personality characteristics typical of the great majority of gifted children. Chapter 8 expands on the topic of visual-spatial, picture, and nonvisual alternative thinkers. Chapter 13 introduces the concept of emotional style and its six dimensions that have specific activation areas in the brain. Finally the topic of spiritual giftedness was expanded and divided into three chapters. Minor changes were made throughout the book smoothing out writing, making judicious cuts, and adding words of clarification.'
For years, I have waited for Michael Piechowski to put together the full picture of what it means to be gifted. In this volume, Mellow Out, he does just that. A book of magnificent proportions—it is erudite, down-to-earth, and written with sensitivity that will cause readers to recognize in themselves the inner qualities of giftedness.
