Friend and occasional business-partner, Lisa Van Gemert, released her second book recently and gave me a copy. Living Gifted: 52 Tips to Survive and Thrive in Giftedland is written to be read by (or to) the gifted.
Each tip consists of two pages:
- A brief write up
- A worksheet/activity page
Here’s Tip #4: “Add a Layer of Service.”
Tips cover a diverse range of topics, from understanding one’s own strengths, to learning others’ names, to giving people better praise.
This is a style of book that I really appreciate. Yes, it’s short and to the point. But it’s also wide-ranging. I feel like Lisa read a hundred books and condensed the most essential bits into this one helpful book. As I flip through it, I know I’m benefitting from her voracious reading.
I could see having a copy in a classroom for students to puruse, but it would also be great for parents at home.
You can find Living Gifted at Amazon.
PS: Lisa signed my copy and I bet she’d sign yours if you catch her at a conference!
