Akiane appeared on more than 100 TV programs – including Oprah – and wrote two bestselling books.

Jacob Barnett

Jacob Barnett Jacob Barnett is one child genius who could give Einstein a run for his money, and has been doing so for the past few years, as he began work on his master's degree at the age of 13 and is currently studying theoretical physics at the Perimeter Institute. A curious fact about Jacob Barnett is that he has been classified as an autistic child, and “experts” said that he would never be able to learn anything like regular children could.

Some of these stories outline the potential our children can have if we help them nurture it. Which of the stories did you find more interesting? Do you know about any other child geniuses that I haven't mentioned here?
