Pressestimmen

"I enjoyed reading this book. It is highly informative and interesting."--Alice Miller, author of Drama of the Gifted Child "Many readers will recognize their own experiences..."--Lita Linzer Schwartz, Ph.D., ABPP, Distinguished Professor Emerita, Pennsylvania State University "This book was a delight. It affirmed my own experiences and observations. The author makes her study come alive...through the voices of real people talking about their experiences.... I highly recommend this book."--Joanne Rand Whitmore, Ph.D., Professor and Dean, College and Graduate School of Education, Kent State University

Synopsis

What makes people gifted? How does being identified as a "smart kid" early on affect career choice, friendships, and romantic pairings in later life? Why do some talented and gifted children become Mozarts and Einsteins, while others drop out of intellectual pursuits? This work, based on a ten-year study, answers these questions by charting the life paths of 100 gifted adults. Using stories and examples, it traces three types of gifted adults - strivers, superstars, and independents - and examines the implications of being an "A" student in a "C" world.

From the moment I began reading this book, until I finished it 12 hours later, my jaw hung in amazement. I've never had anyone quantify my life experiences so clearly, and this from a total stranger. I have always been labeled gifted, but all that ever got me was ostracization, and being held to a higher standard. My job history was flaky (I get bored easily), I experimented with drugs, my relationship problems, everything was here, and with an explanation. This book covers all aspects of "giftedness", from the stereotypical "nerds", to the antisocial rebels like myself. This book has truly opened my eyes to areas of my life I was unable or unwilling to look at and deal with. It clearly details how gifted people too often end up on the fringe, just for lack of fitting in. It also deals with how to interact with the gifted people in your life, for stonger relationships, and a valuable resource. Thank you for writing this, Ms. Streznewski. This is the most valuable book I have read all year.

From a format standpoint, this book is an excellent example of how to approach, research and write for a "popular" audience on a complex subject. The language is pleasantly free of obstructive technical jargon and supplemented by plenty of anecdotal evidence. Publishers should view this book as an example of why professional writers will usually give you a better book than would-be experts with writing ability.
The best part of this book is its separation of the concept of "giftedness" from the tyranny of numerical test scores. Though the book doesn't go this far, as I come away from reading the book and then reviewing my own experiences, I grow convinced that the word "gifted" should be replaced by the word "lopsided." It is the imbalance of attributes that causes "gifted" people the most trouble -- too much of this combined with not enough of that.
What the book did not do for me is map out steps I could take as soon as I finished reading to either reduce or eliminate the "gifted" predicament. It was content to "prove" to the reader that life for "gifted grownups" was no walk in the park. Well and good -- but what now?
With this in mind, the two books that should be read along with this one are Shame: The Power of Caring by Gershen Kaufman and Work Abuse: How To Recognize and Survive It by Judity Wyatt and Chauncey Hare.
This is the first book on this controversial subject. Hopefully, it won't be the last.

Her insight into gifted adults as people who need to learn more and faster, always needing new projects to avert boredom, and verbalizing creative, off-the-wall mental leaps that no one gets describes my experience accurately. I thought there was something wrong with me! I like her style, very straightforward, using her subject's stories in ways that move the text along rather than bog it down. No hint of pop psychology here thank goodness. I'm sending this book to a friend in Alaska who, like me, struggles with being different. I know she will find it interesting--it helps to define and clarify our sense that we are extraordinary in some way.

This is a very very important book and should be read by everyone in education. I grew up in a shcool district that didn't know the meaning of the word "gifted." Teachers always told me to be quiet because I was "making the other kids feel bad" with my intelligence. I ended up being so bored with life because I never had anywhere near enough mental stimulation. What the author describes in this book helped me understand so many things about my childhood and adulthood and how my giftedness and the failure of those around me to accept it has affected my life. So many things finally make sense to me that didn't for decades. I agree with the author that by negelcting gifted people, young and old, we are wasting valuable resources. This book is fabulous and has helped me tremendously. I am very interested in talking with anyone who has had a similar experience with the book.

Reading like a good biography, Gifted Grownups examines the needs of the nation's most neglected and misunderstood resource. A good blend of authority and approachability, the book is the result of a 10 year study of 100 gifted adults. Streznewski examines giftedness in children, adolescents, and young adults with particular attention to how gifted adults function in relationships, school, and work. Gifted adults will sigh with relief and recognition. Teachers and employers may find a clue here to working with the gifted as they are -which, after all, is what every human being deserves. This book should be required reading for every manager and educator.In other words, get it. Read it. Pass it on.By Vaughn Ward, author of I Always Tell the Truth and Adirondack editor for the Greenfield Review Press

Am I the only one who sees the irony in Americans congratulating themselves more while achieving less? I could call myself 'gifted,' because I display the personality traits discussed in the book. However, I'm not sure the 'gifted' label is helpful. The problem is that the importance of potential is elevated, and the importance of hard work is downplayed.
I have had roomates from England and Australia, and I can state that Americans are considered smug, arrogant and completely ignorant of other cultures. Books like this, which encourage self-congratulation rather than study and hard work, exacerbate the problem.
