About the Author:

University of Central Florida, USA Independent consultant in gifted education

Review:

'This is the most demanding book I have had to review because it is difficult to do it justice... It is thought provoking, erudite, accessible and informed. It is a must for anyone who has a serious interest in gifted education and who wants to extend and enrich their thinking on what we really mean by disadvantage and how to move forward to realising equity and excellence for all.' - Sue Mordecai, Senior Adviser in Education, Bromley, London, UK

'[This book] provides a compelling, comprehensive, and cogent overview of gifted education, which in turn makes its insights into ways of accommodating and serving diverse learners all the more insightful and useful ... Diversity in Gifted Education is a work that all interested in gifted education, diverse student populations, and international and comparative education must possess. As do most classic works, it seamlessly combines the best of prior work with innovative ways of looking at old predicaments. Diversity in Gifted Education is of value to the scholar, the practitioner, and the advocate of gifted education. It should be read with care by all examining new paradigms for gifted education.' - Gifted Education International
