The only way to really know about what it feels like to grow up with the trials and tribulations of being a gifted youngster, you have to ask gifted youngsters themselves. Smart Talk is an intelligent and engaging volume that lets gifted kids know that they are not alone. Based on a survey of thousands of young people from around the world, it provides a fresh perspective on the challenges gifted children face everyday - from dealing with others' expectations of you, making mistakes, and staying stimulated and motivated at school. It also includes numerous activities that help readers relate the information and issues raised. This is a must-have volume for any gifted child, and for any adult who wants to understand what its like to grow up gifted.

A straightforward 'tell it like it is

... gives the straight word on the ups and downs of being gifted, and solid advice on how to deal with expectations, cope with boredom, find personal passions, and look ahead to the future. Smart Talk reaches out to young readers with the reassurance that being gifted may make a person feel different from others of the same age, that doesn't mean he or she is all alone. Enthusiastically recommended for gifted children and their families. --Midwest Book Review
