The Gifted Teen Survival Guide: Smart, Sharp, and Ready for (almost) Anything
Support gifted teens with this one-of-a-kind book full of sage advice to help them understand themselves, relate well with others, and reach their potential in life. Based on new surveys of nearly 1,500 gifted teens, this updated classic is the ultimate guide to thriving in a world that doesn't always support or understand high ability. Full of fresh illustrations, surprising facts, cutting-edge research, revealing quizzes and survey results, step-by-step strategies, inspiring teen quotes and stories, and insightful expert essays, the guide gives readers the tools they need to appreciate their giftedness as an asset and use it to make the most of who they are.
"This book provides gentle, straightforward, and realistic advice to teens who find that their giftedness is not always simple. The tone indicates quite clearly that the authors have a deep understanding of gifted minds and gifted children. Gifted young people everywhere should have access to this book, and the adults who work with them will gain a better understanding of them from it". --School Library Journal

This book was full of great ideas and solid, point-blank information on what gifted teens (and all teens) need. I wish I had had this information when I was starting high school. I only wish the book could have given some more specific tips on social issues and emotional management.
