People's capabilities form the most crucial of all mankind's resources. High abilities help their possessors to enjoy productive and fruitful lives, and the expertise gained by competent men and women makes wider contributions to human progress. The Psychology of High Abilities reveals the causes of impressive accomplishments, discovering how and why people differ in their capabilities. Topics covered include prodigies, geniuses, the acceleration of development in young people, and the influences of family backgrounds on young people.
