Book ReviewsIn this monthly feature, we collect a few excerpts from reviews of our books. Here is a sampling of our November book reviews:




Giftedness 101Giftedness 101 by Linda Silverman, PhD

"In my estimation Giftedness 101 ranks high among authoritative texts devoted to this particular population of children. It not only offers thorough experience and knowledge-based insights to those who are already or are contemplating serving the social emotional needs of these children in the future, but also those who profess to educate future teachers, those who would venture out into classrooms charged with the teaching and many others besides. It should be required reading for politicians--especially those who shape educational policy." --Gifted and Talented International


Layout 1Children's Encounters with Death, Bereavement, and Coping by Charles Corr, PhD,CT (Editor); David Balk, PhD (Author)

"Children’s Encounters with Death, Bereavement, and Coping is a very well researched document and well written by an impressive cadre of scholars...The book is a must read for marriage and family therapists, clergy, and pediatric care givers whose work intersects the lives of children and the social and environmental systems in which they live." --CFLE Newsletter (Certified Family Life Educators of the National Council on Family Relations)


Proposal Writing for Nursing Capstones and Clinical ProjectsProposal Writing for Nursing Capstones and Clinical Projects by Wanda Bonnel, PhD, GNP-BC, ANEF; Katharine Smith, PhD, RN, ACNS-BC, CNE

"As a faculty member who has been working with DNP students for the past five years, I find this book to be a valuable asset for proposal writing. I have not seen another book that covers this subject. I plan to require this book for my students who will be writing their doctoral practice theses proposals." --Doody’s Medical Reviews
