Review quote

"I think Dr. Strip Whitney has written another winning title in A Love for Learning. She is clear, concise, and speaks to many of the issues parents encounter in attempting to address motivational issues with their children. I wish I had the benefit of this book five years ago. It would have saved me a lot of anguish and misunderstanding. Thank you Dr. Whitney." -- Chris Kaczanowski "Grosse Pointe Association for Gifted Children"
