Hi Everyone,

Nancy Lu is one of BrainyZine readers. She has two highly gifted children. Her son has an IQ of 194 and entered college at age 10. He got his Master in Computer Science from Stanford University at age 16. Now he is 19 and is working on his third year of the Math Ph.D. program. Nancy's daughter is also highly gifted with an IQ of 189. She is a Jr. in college majoring in English and Theater now. Their stories have been broadcasted around the world. Ever since then, Nancy has poured her experiences on raising two children with high IQs into a book titled "Raising IQ: Help your children reach their full potential". I'm delighted that she contributed a feature article on BrainyZine issue this week. Make sure you don't miss it. Have a nice day and take care!

Literacy starts at an early age
Summit Daily News Jan 12, 2005
