Product Description

Review

'This lively, heartening book radiates enthusiasm and will give parents – and teachers – the confidence to believe that, yes, they really can make a difference.' TES (Times Educational Supplement)

'Tony Buzan deserves a medal for coming up with the sanity-saving concept of Mind Maps, which make difficult mental tasks possible, even pleasurable, by engaging the right side of the brain, where colour and creativity reign…The system can be a lifesaver for children with dyslexia-type difficulties.' TIME OUT

'Tony Buzan comes to the rescue with this inspiring, fun and practical book, which helps parents help their children become intelligent in every sense of the word.' EVENING ECHO

'In his desperately needed and paradigm-shifting book Brain Child, Tony Buzan, among many other timely and pertinent observations for the development of the intelligence of your child, identifies that learning Mind Sports and chess in particular, stimulates dendritic growth early in life and provides synaptic protection as you get older! Protect your child and yourself – buy this book! Brain Child should be nominated as the "Brain Book" of the year!' THE SPECTATOR

Format: Paperback
For me, this is actually the first Buzan book I've read and the first child psychology book as well. I was actually in the bookstore buying a book for a family member in the self help section when this interesting title by this popular author caught my eye. I actually wanted to buy the book, but the cover was slightly folded here and there and it put me off. After making a few calls here and there with some local bookstores, I realized that this was the only copy left anywhere! I rushed out and bought it (I even checked Amazon.com) and I am more than glad that I did.

Although simple to read and follow, the book touches upon simple things that every parent can do to help their child realize his/her potential. The author does a magnificent job of helping parents better understand what motivates children to do what they do, whether it is something that we, as adults, perceive as positive or negative. It also guides parents on how to deal with their child's behaviour once they have understood it.

The book also contains a wonderful chapter on uniqueness and individuality. The author does a beautiful job of explaining and convincing parents how and why their children will naturally be different from them, even if exposed to the very same experiences. Also, within the same chapter, the author also explains with many great examples and details, why siblings will are noticeably different from one another and the roots of that difference even if all the siblings are exposed to the same parents, school, teachers, etc.

After getting three quarters of the way through this book, I have realized that my parents used many if not most of the parenting techniques recommended by the author and they are all things that I distinctly remember vividly till the very day.

Format: Paperback
We purchased this book when our daughter was born 5 years ago and it has been of great use to us. We also made a conscious decision to get rid of our television and let our daughter focus her energies on play/work and to really put her `absorbent' mind to good use through the use of her five senses.

The book taught us how to facilitate the development of our daughter's unique personality and to also help her become socially and emotionally well adjusted and grow up as a physically strong and happy child.

Finally, we were told by our daughter's school that she is academically gifted in the field of Mathematics and we believe that this book has played its part in helping us get there. You may also wish to read "Your Child Can be Top of The Class," by Ken Adams.

I feel great respect for this man's work and thank my lucky stars that I stumbled on Buzan's Use Your Head 22 years ago!!! when still in school. I found his method of studying extremely liberating and it has helped me incredibly. This book is also a very interesting book. It will help you appreciate the limitless potential your children have and give you the incentive to try to tap into this potential.
