"Every page glistens with intelligence, humor, wit
and creativity. I highly recommend Adam Khoo's best-selling book, I Am
Gifted, So are You! Adam's title is correct. He is gifted! This does not
need to be proven in any other way for you than by reading the book."

"Adam's unique talent is that he is able to structure
and share specific techniques and strategies that any student can use
to produce the same outstanding results he has achieved."

One hundred and sixty seven pages of attention getting
color with information that my kids actually wanted to read!
I suggest you have your kids skip the forewords and
begin at the Contents. Buy them a set of fine tip colored markers, a pack
of sticky notes and a decent day planner as well.
When you give them the book make a big deal of it,
say "I have bought you a special gift and I will present it to you
soon." Create mystery, intrigue, curiosity and anticipation. When
you present it say, "This is the first gift for you. Tell me the moment
you finish doing section one so I can give you your next gift". Present
the markers at that time and say, "This is just a small, although important,
gift. Tell me when you finish doing section two, so that you can receive
an even greater gift". When they finish section two, give them the
planner and sticky notes. Say "Your greatest gift of all is waiting
for you to do section three". When they finish section three ask,
"What ideas are you using from the book?" These are the true gifts.
One more gift is in section four, how to ace exams.
