I am a grandmother who bought the book hoping it would help me to understand my grandchildren better and encourage them more. It did all that and more. It helped me understand myself better, too! Best of all, the book helped me to let go of notions of standardized "well-roundedness" that we must all somehow meet, and helped me embrace and appreciate our different strengths and interests. I am excited to see how my grandchildren's futures will unfold as they are encouraged to be who they are wired to be.
This is a must read for anyone who has children, works with children or is around children in any way. If you want to inspire and encourage children to be all God designed them to be, then this is the book for you. I discovered SO much about myself, my husband, my son, my nieces and nephew (many of which are smart in different ways than I am). I loved the way this book is written in easy to read English but in depth enough to give you real information. Also included are many bible references which are GREAT for giving to your children. I loved it so much that I am buying 3 more copies - one for my sister, one for my son's teacher and one for my church library.
