I read this book eagerly as it quickly identified my oldest child and his struggles in school. He is gifted and participates in a district-wide identified-gifted program but experiences much of the frustrations described in this book. I finally felt like there was an ANSWER to the difficulties we've been having. However, I did not find much in the area of solutions. I meet with my son's teacher regularly and was looking forward to bringing some fresh new ideas to our ongoing conversation about how to best teach my child and the book seems to stop short of that. I would recommend this book for those who have gifted underachievers as it does a great job of describing various 'twice exceptional' children.
