Our brightest, most creative children and adults are often being misdiagnosed with behavioral and emotional disorders such as ADHD, Oppositional-Defiant Disorder, Bipolar, OCD, or Asperger's. Many receive unneeded medication and inappropriate counseling as a result. Physicians, psychologists, and counselors are unaware of characteristics of gifted children and adults that mimic pathological diagnoses. Six nationally prominent health care professionals describe ways parents and professionals can distinguish between gifted behaviors and pathological behaviors.

Although the book is good, and the edition I'm reading does not have the "medals" shown on the cover from Amazon, I'm disappointed that there were 2 typos on page 183. There was a period missing after the first paragraph, in the second last paragraph there is a word missing from the 2nd last sentence. "They are able [to] make their rationale..."
