Customer Review

on June 11, 2012
I scanned this book and agreed with most of the negative reviews that the book doesn't offer a lot of concrete advice for parents on how to raise innovative children, although it might provide moral support to parents who are struggling to understand their innovative offspring.

One glaring omission that struck me, though, was the author's failure to mention homeschooling as an alternative to public or private schooling. Surely there are also young innovators who have come up through the homeschooling path -- these would have been useful examples to include. We recently pulled our daughter out of a well-regarded local charter school in part because we finally understood that the school environment was completely opposed to any sort of creativity and innovation, collaboration, meaningful social interactions, and so forth.
