The boy who knew too much: a child prodigy

This is the true story of scientific child prodigy, and former baby genius, Ainan Celeste Cawley, written by his father. It is the true story, too, of his gifted brothers and of all the Cawley family. I write also of child prodigy and genius in general: what it is, and how it is so often neglected in the modern world. As a society, we so often fail those we should most hope to see succeed: our gifted children and the gifted adults they become. Site Copyright: Valentine Cawley, 2006 +

The Kindle Blog Report reviews The Boy Who Knew Too Much.

The Kindle Blog Report is a website dedicated to reviewing blogs available on the Kindle, Amazon. It is an excellent resource for anyone who would like to be guided to the best and away from the worst, of what the Kindle has to offer.

The reviews are very clear to read and it is very simple to extract the important information from them. They are broken down into sections so that you can focus on the most important ones for you: "Reviewed by..."; "My recommendation"; "Amazon subscription link"; "Web address"; "Blog description"; "My review", "Sample post" and "Recent posts". This review outlay gives a very comprehensive insight into what a blog is like. The second section "My recommendation" is a simple one word statement: "Yes" or "No"...thus, if you have little time, you can immediately see whether the review is a positive one or not - and know at once whether the blog being reviewed is worth your time. The "Sample post" section is also useful, in that it includes a sample of writing found on the site, giving the reader an idea of the quality of writing concerned. The "Recent posts" section gives a glimpse of the possible variety of material on the site.

All in all, I found the layout of The Kindle Report very accessible and open to immediate understanding. It is a very clear, uncluttered presentation that makes it easy to see, at once, what you need to know about a new blog.

Well, those are my thoughts on The Kindle Report. Now, what were reviewer "Marguerite Zelle's" thoughts on my blog. Well, her judgement can be summed up in her own phrase: "This is a fascinating blog on a fascinating subject - that of child prodigies." She really liked the blog and gave it a "Yes" in her recommendation.

You can read her review here:

Whilst you are on her site, I recommend that you take a look around and see what I did: a huge range of blog reviews on every topic you can imagine.

I understand that The Kindle Report has quite a few reviewers working with them, so it is not just Marguerite Zelle doing all this work (that would be too much for any one person, I think).

Marguerite finished her review of my blog by saying: "I found this blog a fascinating read, and I recommend it for everyone who has gifted children, extremely intelligent children, or just children in general. "

Personally, I was touched by her words. You see The Kindle Report is the first review of my blog that I have seen in my four years of writing it. I have put in a lot of effort over the years and it is gratifying that a reviewer, whose job, after all, is to review blogs, should think it worthy, in the context of all the blogs they get to read.

Thanks to The Kindle Report for taking the time to read and review my blog. It is much appreciated.
