This book is written for pre-teens and teens who love to learn, although they might not love school. Read about how to understand your intensity, manage perfectionism and self-talk, understand your parents better, and take charge of your education, whether you go to public school, private school, or homeschool. Discover yourself as an intense and excitable learner, a creative learner, and a self-directed learner. When you open up the possibilities of how you can learn both in and outside of school, you can live life more fully, intensely, and creatively. This is an excellent companion book to A Parent's Guide to Gifted Teens, written by the same author but for parents of gifted adolescents.
