As I'm not yet a parent I picked up the book as I was interested in neuroscience. I was not disappointed and even got more than I bargained for. Medina is a gifted communicator, entertainer, and educator. The book has genuine laugh out loud moments but also makes you think. You will never look at learning in the same way, and will be more aware of the rationale for certain parenting styles and decisions.
Excellent. The reader speaks with a natural fluency that makes it very easy to listen to and concentrate on. The content was clearly explained, well categorised and full of examples to make it 'come alive'. This is a book I would have really struggled to read and concentrate on but I very much wanted to read. Having it in Audio format is wonderful. I feel I have hung on every word and learned a lot.
Many. Too many to mention. Mostly that I could understand behaviours and features of my own clients, clients from the past, and my own children and my own childhood behaviours as he described clinical features.
