Nurture ShockI was very positively surprised by the book NurtureShock — New Thinking About Children, by Po Bronson & Ashley Merryman. Without any other comparison they try much like the Chair to dismiss popular myths with sound science-based research. In ten chapters the authors go through topics such as Praise, Lying, Self-Control, Language Development and what the latest research tells us about these and how it contrast versus popular belief. I think the title is a bit of a misnomer, the content is not really that 'shocking' after all, nevertheless I can really recommend the book to any Spec with children or an interest in the topic.
