From #1 New York Times bestselling author Gordon Korman comes a hilarious and heartfelt novel in which one middle-school troublemaker accidentally moves into the gifted and talented program—and changes everything. For fans of Louis Sachar and Jack Gantos, this funny and touching underdog story is a lovable and goofy adventure with robot fights, middle-school dances, live experiments, and statue-toppling pranks! When Donovan Curtis pulls a major prank at his middle school, he thinks he’s finally gone too far. But thanks to a mix-up by one of the administrators, instead of getting in trouble, Donovan is sent to the Academy of Scholastic Distinction, a special program for gifted and talented students. Although it wasn’t exactly what Donovan had intended, the ASD couldn’t be a more perfectly unexpected hideout for someone like him. But as the students and teachers of ASD grow to realize that Donovan may not be good at math or science (or just about anything), he shows that his gifts may be exactly what the ASD students never knew they needed. Don't miss the sequel to this word-of-mouth hit: Supergifted! This funny and heartwarming sequel to Ungifted cleverly sends up our preconceived ideas about intelligence, heroism, and popularity.

Child prodigies. Gifted and Talented Programs. Perfect 2400s on the SAT. Sometimes it feels like the world is conspiring to make the rest of us feel inadequate. Those children tapped as possessing special abilities will go on to achieve great things, while the rest of us have little chance of realizing our dreams. Right? In Ungifted, cognitive psychologist Scott Barry Kaufman—who was relegated to special education as a child—sets out to show that the way we interpret traditional metrics of intelligence is misguided. Kaufman explores the latest research in genetics and neuroscience, as well as evolutionary, developmental, social, positive, and cognitive psychology, to challenge the conventional wisdom about the childhood predictors of adult success. He reveals that there are many paths to greatness, and argues for a more holistic approach to achievement that takes into account each young person's personal goals, individual psychology, and developmental trajectory. In so doing, he increases our appreciation for the intelligence and diverse strengths of prodigies, savants, and late bloomers, as well as those with dyslexia, autism, schizophrenia, and ADHD. Combining original research, anecdotes, and a singular compassion, Ungifted proves that anyone—even those without readily observable gifts at any single moment in time—can become great.

Leo Caraway, Präsident der Jungen Republikaner und zukünftiger Harvard-Student, hat sein Leben bereits vollständig durchgeplant. Seit er jedoch weiß, dass sein biologischer Vater niemand geringeres ist, als King Maggot McMurphy, der Sänger der erfolgreichsten Punkrockband aller Zeiten, ist Leo überzeugt, dass McMurphys Blut in seinen Adern ihn zu einer tickenden Zeitbombe macht, die nur darauf wartet, zu explodieren, um sein wohl sortiertes Leben zu zerstören. Als es dann tatsächlich zu einer Katastrophe kommt und er sein Havard-Stipendium verliert, entschließt er sich, Kontakt zu McMurphy aufzunehmen. Insgeheim hofft er, ihn dazu zu bewegen, ihm sein teures Studium zu bezahlen. Das Ergebnis der Aktion: Er geht mit der Punkrockband auf Tour und entdeckt dabei überraschende Wahrheiten über seinen Vater, seine Freunde und – am allerwichtigsten – über sich selbst.

There is an enormous number of publications about photovoltaics but there are very few addressing normal people in an understandable language. This book explains how one can build a photovoltaic installation which produces electricity for less than 3 Euro cents per kWh (including the costs for the credit; not everywhere in the world and only when the sun shines; electricity for the night costs about 10 cents more). Everybody who knows which way round to grasp a screw driver is able to set up a photovoltaic installation. The back of an envelope should be big enough to make the calculation whether such an installation pays or not. The book addresses private persons and the owners of small companies who are thinking about producing their own electricity; so we are talking mostly about 'islands' and 'peninsulas' and you will not find any further information about subsidies and taxes. Photovoltaics have the potential to stop the climate change. The book shows (alongside) how this could work out.
