Overview

The first edition of this unique book, published in 1993, introduced 15 remarkable children, some of the most gifted young people ever studied, and traced their path through school, exploring their academic achievements, their emotional development, their social relationships, and their family upbringing. This new edition reviews these early years, and then follows the young people over their next ten years into adulthood. No previous study has traced so closely and so sensitively the intellectual, social, and emotional development of highly gifted young people. This 20-year study reveals the ongoing negative academic and social effects of prolonged underachievement and social isolation imposed on gifted children by inappropriate curriculum and class placement and shows clearly the long lasting benefits of thoughtfully planned individual educational programs.
