I'm going to look into his other books, but reading this was a little frustrating.

I also recommend "How to Teach Your Baby to Be Physically Superb" by Glenn Doman in addition to this book.

When it comes to improving our children's life there are not enough stars in heaven to rate this book and the contribution Glenn Doman has made to mankind. On the surface the whole program looks like nothing but memorization. However if you understand the philosophy you understand that it is all about Quality repetitive stimulation, not memorization. The philosophy is simple and we have heard it a million times, The brain is like a muscle the more you exercise (stimulate) it the more it develops. There is one important difference however, the development of the brain is some what inversely proportional to ones age. The youngest mind (Infant mind) responds (develops) the best to stimulation. There is one other major point we need to understand. There is a difference between learning and developing the brain. Developing the brain is the establishment of the neuron connection in the brain in to the different areas of the brain, this is how your increase your IQ. Learning is the activity of studying a subject, and internalizing it, this is how you increase your wisdom/knowledge.
We all understand to become a professional athlete, we need to develop the capability of the muscles to perform the work and we need to learn the skill to perform the work. We also understand there is no way to separate the two different development areas. That is as a beginner to any sport you have to and do develop both the skill and the ability at the same time as you participate. The whole point Glenn and Janet Doman are making is one that any good coach understands, the most effective way to increase the rate of development and potential of ability is to engage in quality repetitive stimulation.

I discovered this book eleven years ago as a new mother. I was amazed and delighted to find out the wonderous ways that my baby's brain worked. I followed the 'essence' of the book - tempering it so that it was always low-stress and joyful and following the suggestions according to our daily mood (not the rigid schedule suggested). We modififed the suggestions so that everything was fun - she always begged for more. Fast forward to today...I have three children, ages 7,9 and 11. They are all happy, confident, independent and secure. They are all outstanding athletes. They all attend school in a gifted program and excel as students. But even more - they love school, they love to read, they love learning. Do yourself and your child the favor of a lifetime - read this book!

I used this method 17 years ago on my 17 month old son. He was reading by the time he was two--Hardy Boys before five--with excellent comprehension. He's now a sophomore at MIT on full scholarship, played Varsity lacrosse, etc. He's a great kid and was a great student. Doman's book was wonderful. Doman's philosophy is wonderful--teach as a reward, never a punishment--always stop before the child wants to--avoid testing--avoid pressure--deveop the physical, artisitic, and cultural elements of the person as well. Buy it! Read it! Follow it!

My parents did Glenn Doman's entire program -- reading, math, physical and encyclopedic knowledge as well as Suzuki violin -- with me, my younger sister and brothers. It had such a profound impact on our lives. We all have retained the love of learning into adulthood, and NEVER felt pressured as children. If you want to give your children the greatest gift ever (after the gift of life) then please read all of Glenn Doman's books! This book is meant to be an introduction -- you will find the program easier if you read every book in the series. Have a wonderful time!

This book was very enlightening for my husband and I. We used these methods for both of our children. Both of them are in the gifted program at school and have been playing violin since 2 1/2. My son is in 6th grade making straight A's and my daughter is in 4th grade doing the same thing. They are also very active in sports activities. This book was the starting point of tapping into their potential at a very young age. The methods set forth in this book are not just meant as suggestions, but they actually work! We are very happy to have found this book, and are reaping its benefits already.

I was pretty disappointed with this book. It was recommend by a co-worker, so I bought it. There are 194 pages of anecdotes about why its a good idea to use the exercises in the book before one gets to the first exercise. This sort of thing is usually covered in the introduction, or maybe the first chapter, but not the first 15! Does anyone really need that much convincing *after* buying the book?

Format: Paperback
This book seems to have been written in order to sell the three previous books by Glenn Doman: "How to Teach Your Baby to Read", "How to Teach Your Baby Math", and "How to Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge". Apparently you have to buy these three books instead of this one. This book is the most verbose ingratiating introduction I have ever read and won't give additional value or new information.

His methods sound good and other people seem to think they work. I'm going to look into his other books, but reading this was a little frustrating. It was like watching one of those HBO "behind the scenes" movie trailers that for half an hour tell you how great the movie that they're making is going to be. The movie may be good, but the introduction is just a long tedious overview, with no real information. Or to put it another way, perhaps, like those 3-hour midnight infomercials

You have to do A LOT of skimming through the 400 pages just to get a glimpse of what he's talking about. And lest I leave you without giving a specific example. This is just a sample of what he consistently does throughout the book:

"If one took a dull saw and slowly cut a leg off a human being who was in a profound coma, he would not object in any way...[etc]...Why? ...[etc]...He can't see you cutting it off. He can't hear you cutting it off. He can't feel you cutting it off. He can't smell you cutting it off. He can't taste you cutting it off. He has no facts at his disposal. Without facts there can be no intelligence."

If you can muddle through this drek he has some interesting things to say, but it's a real effort. I'm imagining if I do get any of the other books. I'll need a highlighter just to highlight when he actually comes to a point.
