Format: Paperback
This is an excellent book. The author explains a highly complex subject so clearly - and so many of the observations struck me as making complete sense. I tried out the visual exercises on my teenagers and we all agreed we understood each other better as a result. Overall: just fascinating!

'Blame my brain' has confirmed to me that I was not demented after all or angst-ridden just for the hell of it back when I was a hormonal teenager. It is also a great relief to me to know now that the earth was not resting its weary weight on my shoulders but there was in-fact a logical explanation for the way I was feeling. The insights into the young brain supplied by Nicola Morgan on her roller-coaster ride of the teenage mind and why they do the things they do, almost convince you that it was OK to pour juice over your brother because he was pressing all the wrong buttons or to write on your sisters jewellery box because you couldn't quite understand why she annoyed you so much. Well, almost.

From strops to tantrums to Neanderthal behaviour in boys and princess-like diva nonsense in girls - this should be read by every teenager, sibling and parent in the world. It offers a more feasible answer instead of 'that's just the way he/she is'.

My new 'how to cope' guide will not be in use for a few years yet but I will hold it close when the time comes. Thank you for writing this Ms Morgan - you are truly an inspiration.

Brilliant book. As a professional working in Behaviour management in school and supporting students and their parents every day this has been wonderful. I have quoted parts and talked alot about various parts that have been useful just in the last 2 weeks! I am making it one of my top 10 essentail reads for parents and children entering adolescents. I have reassured parents and children alike that they are 'normal' and they will change and to accept themselves at present. A must read and to have on your shelf ready.

I would recommend this book to any parent who has a teenager. Our daughter is about to start her Standard Grades and the house has been fraught with tension. This book really opened my eyes and reminded me that I wasn't always an adult.

This is well written and is easy to understand. I would recommend it for parents as it will give you an insight in to your teenagers thoughts and behaviours. I found it to be very useful as it covered a wide range of issues.

An excellent book for teenagers and the unfortunate parents that have to try and understand them. Presented in an easy and informative format, I would recommend it to anyone 14+ as essential reading.

Good relatively short book on the topic. Helped my daughter understand the changes going on in her head so (hopefully) she can manage herself better, but also helped the levels of understanding in her parents too and brought back a few teeenage memories !
Only 'fault' not really a fault to be honest is on a few areas I would have really enjoyed more detail and a bit more on the theory but that's my own preferences coming through there, rather than a problem with the book.
