Format: Hardcover
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.

I received this book through the Good Reads First Reads program in exchange for an honest review -

I *loved* this book.

No, seriously, I really enjoyed it. I found it interesting, the way the author tied in all of the information about the brain and how it works and develops. So this book is so much more than just a guide to parenting. Sure, it goes into things like attention, nutrition, play, exercise, sleep (and much, much more), but it also ties these things into how they relate to the brain. It really fascinated me.

The author tells us the emphasis of this book is "science made practical", and I really do think that he did a wonderful job of making all of the available information about brain development and function (etc) relate-able. And it doesn't come off like a text book, it's written in a way where it keeps your attention and is easy to read.

Each chapter has a list of do's and don'ts, a parent tool kit, and finishes with asking the reader what they want to continue doing and what they want to change. Given all of the information and tools available, this book really does offer a "personal plan to parent with the brain in mind."

I love how it finishes by offering parenting basics that aren't just related to all of the information about the brain, but instead are common pieces of advice given to parents, such as relax and don't be too hard on yourself - or slow down and find balance. So his attitude doesn't come off as though he knows better about raising children then we do. In fact, he tells us :
"This book brings you up to date with brain science discoveries to aid you in the most important job of your life : raising your children. But, of course, parenting is an art, not a science.

Format: Hardcover
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!
