BCD 305.231 Bronson
Nurtureshock: new thinking about children
by Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. Read by Po Bronson. 7 discs. 8 hours.
"Bronson (What Should I Do With My Life?) and Merryman excavate astonishing research that reveals why our parenting strategies have backfired: why smart kids are underperforming, why Baby Einstein watchers speak fewer words than their peers, and why kindergarteners in the gifted program are no smarter than others. Chapters address sibling relations, self-control, sleep effects, and other relevant topics. The book presents a panoramic view of the latest research and is further distinguished by pragmatic prose that avoids alarmism and sanctimony. Verdict This tour de force is one of the best parenting psychology books in years and will likely be seismic in influence.-"
