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. Read by Po Bronson. Simultaneous.


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

In a world of modern, involved, caring parents, why are so many kids aggressive and cruel? Where is intelligence hidden in the brain, and why does that matter? Why do cross-racial friendships decrease in schools that are more integrated? If 98 of kids think lying is morally wrong, then why do 98 of kids lie? What s the single most important thing that helps infants learn language?NurtureShock is a groundbreaking collaboration between award-winning science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley Merryman. They argue that when it comes to children, we ve mistaken good intentions for good ideas. With impeccable storytelling and razor-sharp analysis, they demonstrate that many of modern society s strategies for nurturing children are in fact backfiring--because key twists in the science have been overlooked. Nothing like a parenting manual, the authors work is an insightful exploration of themes and issues that transcend children s and adults ) lives. Bookseller Inventory # AAC9781600248405
