Editorial Reviews:
Synopsis:

A collaborative work by two award-winning science journalists argues that popular nurture-based parenting techniques are proving unsuccessful because they fail to include key aspects of scientific research, in an analysis that covers such topics as aggression, intelligence, and moral behavior.


Review:

"If NURTURESHOCK...can actually be classified as a parenting book, it may be the least touchy-feely one ever....[It] delights in showing that most parental intuition and supposedly common knowledge about child rearing is just [wrong], and he has the facts to prove it. Much like in his previous work, he's entered a genre known for emotional cheese, and produced a book that's hard to put down and easy to take seriously."

Samantha Nelson, Onion A.V. Club, 09/03/2009

Review:

"[The authors'] revelations about what the latest child-rearing research actually says may make you wonder, honestly, how any of us turned out OK....NURTURESHOCK could have been subtitled: You People Have No Clue. But it's not a manual, nor is it an attack on anything but the slapdash, headline-happy way in which scientific research is often uncritically blurred into existing conventional wisdom or spun from rough, complex wool into overly simple, flimsy 'tips.'...We're fumbling along with good intentions but rusty tools, the authors seem to say. Because much of the research they've found offers this reassurance: that kids -- despite our best efforts -- are doing better than we think."

Lynn Harris, Salon, 09/18/2009
