About the Author

Glenn Doman received his degree in physical therapy from the University of Pennsylvania in 1940. From that point on, he began pioneering the field of child brain development. In 1955, he founded The Institutes' world-renowned work with brain-injured children had led to vital discoveries regarding the growth and development of well children. The author has lived with, studied, and worked with children in more than one hundred nations, ranging from the most civilized to the most primitive. Doman is also the international best-selling author of six books, all part of the Gentle Revolution Series, including How To Teach Yor Baby To Read, How To Teach Your Baby Math, and How To Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge.



Douglas Doman is Vice President of The Institutes for the Achievement of Human Potential and the son of

founder Glenn Doman. His early years working at The Institutes were spent establishing the School for Human Development for brain-injured young adults. He worked closely with Bruce Hagy to create the world’s first Human Development Course, a circuit of physical activities that promote neurological organization and development.



Janet Doman is the director of The Institutes and Glenn’s daughter. She was actively involved in helping brain-injured children by the time she was nine years old, and after completing her studies at the University of Pennsylvania, devoted herself to helping parents discover the vast potential of their babies and their own potential as teachers.

This book is about 400 pages long, but only about 100 pages is truly about "how to multiply your baby's intelligence." The other 300 pages are really written as a justification and testimonial about why you should teach your baby. Personally, I didn't need that much convincing and was more interested in the practical strategies of teaching. The three chapters on teaching, "How to Teach Your Baby to Read," "How to Teach Your Baby Math," and "How to Give Your Baby Encyclopedic Knowledge," were pretty much taken right out of the books by those names. I would much more highly recommend those books, as they include more information on how to teach those specific areas (and also include some convincing if you need it).

However, these books present the material as if you will only be teaching that subject. I had hoped that this book would give strategies on how to combine teaching all these areas, but it really didn't. The only thing it said was to start with reading, then add encyclopedic knowledge, then add math (literally one sentence without any further explanation). It did not have practical information like how many sessions total is appropriate for a baby. For instance, the reading chapter has you do 15 sessions a day. The encyclopedic knowledge section has you do 30 sessions a day. The math section has you do 9 sessions a day. If you did all of that, you'd be doing 54 sessions a day--obviously impossible if you had to space them out as you're supposed to. A chapter is clearly missing from this book on what a home program with all of these areas should look like.

If you buy all of these books (How to...Read, How to...Math, How to...Knowledge, How to Multiply), you will find a lot of repetition, as each book makes its case for why you should teach your baby.

Doman's books are a must read, but this book is just a summary of all other books. I still give a 5 star because it gives a good overview.

Start reading How to teach to Read and then How to Teach Math. If you are into it, go to Encyclopedic knowledge. Then take their courses, in Philadelphia, but they are a couple of thousand dollars. Do it all before your baby is born. I read this book 10 years before my wife got pregnant and it changed my life... and my daughter's (I hope). Now she is 3. But don't get too carried away. Believe me, some parents do get carried away. The ones in Philadelphia seem to belong to a sect. Just enjoy your children and add this to the fun. I took the course in Philadelphia but I really don't do much of the program. Still, I raise my daughter differently from what I would otherwise have done without having read this book. You will not be the same person after you read it. And it is not about teaching your baby to read. It is about teaching your baby about life.

You will have more respect for your child and will not let your baby grow "by accident." Instead, you will be able to actively participate in the learning process and challenge your child to fulfill his or her intellectual potential. If you have a child, or if you don't but you love someone, this is the only book that you must read. Remember, read it before the baby is born. This book (or the others in the collection) are a wonderful present for an expecting mother.

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 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!
