MEDIA REVIEWS

"I thought the book was very well written and comprehensive. Frankly, this is one of the best books I have read because it was written specifically for school psychologists. It provides a vast amount of information that will ensure that school psychologists become effective practitioners as it relates to G/T students. I highly recommend this book to any school psychologist who is serious about increasing his or her knowledge about this population." -Tiombe-Bisa Kendrick, NASP Communique

"In this book, Dr. Pfeiffer has made a significant contribution to all professionals who are brought into serving the unique needs of gifted individuals. While giftedness is admired by society, it is ironic that professionals in all fields (except elite sports) are not formally trained to enhance the competencies of the gifted. Society has adopted a "laissez faire" attitude towards the gifted, believing that they will know how to get by and thrive on their own. Dr. Pfeiffer challenges that belief system and encourages and teaches us how to improve our own skills to better serve the gifted." - Marilyn B. Benoit, MD, Chief Clinical Officer and SVP Clinical &Professional Affairs, Devereux; Past President, American Academy of Child & Adolescent Psychiatry
