I love this series, loaded with fabulous interviews and in depth examples of kids led astray by their unformed brains. But I already knew that kids do crazy things. I know I did. These interviews entertained with in-depth examples. I thought the biggest value of these stories was the interspersed neurology research. I would have liked more of that. Having said that, I loved the posts and hope to see more.
