Praise for “NurtureShock”
“The authors throw open the doors on this research to create a book that is not only groundbreaking but compelling as well. Even if you don’t have children, or your kids are grown, you should find the revelations about how the brain works and the rigors and frustrations of the scientific process captivating . . . We see [Bronson and Merryman] doggedly digging for answers to confounding questions . . . In a sense, it’s “Science for Dummies” – explaining cutting-edge research to a lay readership… Riveting. (San Francisco Chronicle)
