Book by Truly Gifted Kid (GEP Book)

This is the book written by a truly gifted kid, the book of all gifted books. If you are looking for GEP books, this is the GEP book to rule all GEP books, written by the gifted kid himself.

The book is titled: We Can Do

I was reading the online news, and discovered this story about Moshe Kai Cavalin.

The one thing 14-year-old Moshe Kai Cavalin dislikes is being called a genius.

All he did, after all, was enroll in college at age 8 and earn his first of two Associate of Arts degrees from East Los Angeles Community College in 2009 at age 11, graduating with a perfect 4.0 grade point average.

Now, at 14, he’s poised to graduate from UCLA this year. He’s also just published an English edition of his first book, “We Can Do.”

Not only is he focused on academics (he researches on Wormhole Theory), he is also proficient in Chinese martial arts, scuba diving, and also writing books. He is also a math major!

Personally, I think the title “We Can Do” is a clever word play on Jeet Kune Do, a style of martial arts invented by Bruce Lee!

If you want to read the Chinese version, it is also available: (Go to College At 8-year-old!) 八歲進大學

Also, thanks to one of my readers who bought this book via my website: The Stanford Mathematics Problem Book: With Hints and Solutions (Dover Books on Mathematics)
This volume features a complete set of problems, hints, and solutions based on Stanford University’s well-known competitive examination in mathematics.
