Do you long to drive a Ferrari at top speed on the open road, but find yourself always stuck on the freeway during rush hour? Do you wonder how you can feel like "not enough" and "too much" at the same time? Like the rain forest, are you sometimes intense, multilayered, colorful, creative, overwhelming, highly sensitive, complex, and/or idealistic? And, like the rain forest, have you met too many chainsaws? Enter Paula Prober, M.S., M.Ed., who understands the diversity and complexity of minds like yours. In "Your Rainforest Mind: A Guide to the Well-Being of Gifted Youths and Adults," Paula explores the challenges faced by gifted adults of all ages. Through case studies and extensive research, Paula will help you tap into your inner creativity, find peace, and discover the limitless potential that comes with your Rainforest Mind.

Over the 30+ years she has worked with the gifted, she has been a teacher, consultant, adjunct instructor with the University of Oregon, and a guest presenter at Pacific University and Oregon State University.

Presently, she is counseling gifted adults and youth and consulting with parents of gifted children.

Anyone with a gifted child or a history of unusual or advanced intellect should read this book right away. You will find your previous assumptions challenged and identity redefined. You will experience relief and expansion as you integrate this rich view point. Reading the in-depth case histories will give you an experience of membership in the Rainforest Tribe.
I related to this book on a personal level, and it helped me greatly in discovering the facets and abilities within myself. It's a wonderful guidebook for those who can't figure out what they want to do in life (because they want to--and CAN do literally EVERYTHING) and are hungry for uniquely personalized advice.
Not many help books for the gifted, so I consider this an extremely valuable and necessary read for the Rainforest Mind.
