I found this book great in its insights for teaching gifted children. I am the parent of a gifted child, and I bought two copies so that I could give one to my son's teacher. I plan on showing the introductory pages to my child's principal because I think they are quite enlightening on the educational needs of gifted kids. (Note: The particular version that I purchased came with internet links to its accompanying materials, but not an attached CD that was part of the version I found at the library.) Overall, one of the best books I have looked at on this topic.
