Summary: As charming performers who skillfully reflect their parents expectations, far too many children grow into adults driven to greater and greater achievements by an underlying sense of worthlessness. Never allowed to express their true feelings, and having lost touch with their true selves, they act out their repressed feelings with episodes of depression and compulsive behavior.

The Drama of the Gifted Child is the first step toward helping readers reclaim their lives by discovering their own needs and their own truth. "A book that patients prescribe...the therapists are reading it because their patients are recommending it."
