This book shines a much-needed spotlight on an issue rarely openly discussed in our society – the finding and nurturance of smart, creative, and talented girls and women. Ignoring the message of this book has deep consequences for society and the unfortunate loss of brilliance among at least half of the human population.

Barbara Kerr and Robyn McKay tackle knotty issues and forge a highly original perspective on women’s talent development based on a multi-disciplinary, intergenerational review of research. I plan to apply their insights to my own work.
