"Free-Range Kids is the best kind of manifesto: smart, funny, rigorous, sane, impassioned, and bristling with common sense. If you’re a parent, or planning to become one, read this book. You have nothing to lose–apart from your anxiety."

—Mary Roach, author, Bonk and Stiff

—Nancy McDermott, parenting blogger, Spiked Online
"Moral insight without moralizing—how rare is that?"
