"The novel aspect of Actualizing Talent is its concern with the development of ability to an exceptionally high level throughout the lifespan, considering the ages at which high ability can be detected and how it may be continued at its peak for life. This collection of papers takes ideas and evidence about high ability further than other material currently available, which is largely restricted to schoolchildren. Both fundamental and applied approaches are described with regard to varied aspects of high ability, such as learning procedures, and in relation to specific areas, such as art and sport. The book concludes with ideas on how the needs of the highly able could be met by educational set-ups, government and industry."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
