This book describes what has happened to them and their families as they have grown up in very different circumstances, in poverty or wealth, through many types of schooling and life opportunities. The young people often describe in their own words how it has been for them, and the authors interpretations are fascinating. Many myths about the development of the gifted are laid to rest. There are valuable insights here into their special situations, and suggestions for much needed changes in their care and education. These are not only important for their own fulfilment and happiness, but for the future of society.
