Dr David Walsh has once again hit a home run. This book is a wonderful addition to his already impressive list of publications, this time focusing his keen intellect on the skills we need to help our children to grow as whole persons with as much intellectual firepower as they can possibly have.
I have struggled for a long time to bring the fruits of neuroscience to my parenting and find Dr Walsh an able and skillful teacher. Like all good teachers, he makes his "class" an interesting and fruitful time. The book is amazingly easy to read given the obvious scholarship behind his ideas and recommendations.
Both my time and my money were well spent.

As always, Dr. Walsh does a fantastic job of making complex information about child development easy to understand and integrate into your own parenting philosophy. In his newest book the focus is on brian development and what we can learn from the latest research in neuoroscience. He has added a workbook element to it so we can figure out what areas need improvement. This is a book that all parents and children can benefit from!
