I read this because I teach 7th grade and I m teaching a research writing unit on brain development so unlike my few other 1 star reviews I actually read the whole thingI ll paraphrase each chapter for you My children are great Here s some science Here s a completely unresearched anecdote I heard from somebody that relates to the science My children are great because I talked to them I m great Also drugs are bad mmmkayI d also suggest an alternate title The Upper Middle Class Teenage Brain A Privileged Neuroscientist s Guide to Raising Adolescents who Go to Private Schools and Elite Colleges As a teacher in a very socio economically diverse school I was hoping for the book to address socio economics and adolescent development in any substantial way it did not The tone of the book in some places was almost offensive but was mostly laughable in regards to the way it ignores the realities of many working class and poor families and how that likely impacts brain development It is not a book I would recommend to the parents of my students Also if you are already familiar with adolescent brain development pick a different book
