Product Description

Review

"Dr. Medina hits the nail on the head with 'Brain Rules for Baby.' We are always looking for ways to make our kids smarter, better, happier. Medina gives such practical, usable advice and tips." - Nina L. Shapiro, MD, UCLA School of Medicine "An engaging and fun-to-read translation of the best research on child development and effective parenting. I gave Dr. Medina's book to my own son." - Ginger Maloney, Ph.D, The Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy "John Medina uses a very readable and refreshing style to present parenting strategies in the context of factual scientific information." - Jadene Wong, M.D., Stanford University School of Medicine "If you've no room for another brain-development title, weed an old one to make room for this. Covering such topics as pregnancy, relationships, and "moral" babies, the book will educate even the most learned parents. Medina's humorous, conversational style make this an absolute please to read." - Library Journal "We recommend this book to all of our new-parent groups. With a gift for storytelling, Dr. Medina marries the science with practical advice that helps make sense of it all. Sleep-deprived parents still find time to read Brain Rules for Baby and love it." - Laura Kussick, Executive Director, Program for Early Parent Support

First we enjoyed the audiobook during a long car ride and were so impressed by the way John Medina is conveying his messages that we decided to buy the book as well. It is the perfect mix between confirmed scientific insights, common sense, and his own experiences. Highly recommended for first-time parents!

This was not what I thought it was going to be at all and completely exceeded my expectations. A fantastically good read, well out together and makes you think, challenge and change your approach and behaviour to benefit your child. What more could you want? Read it now!

I don't think I have ever enjoyed a book like this one. It is so informative and extremely well written that I have recommended it to all my friends. I know it is a book about "babies", but everyone should read this book to have a better understanding of human species.

Raising a socially adept, well-adjusted child requires the parents to pay attention to their own behaviours and how they interact with their child. The psychology of the process may be intuitive but not obvious. The author provides an amiable and engaging breakdown of the core principles at play, and in keeping with the theme of the book, the reader is left imprinted with healthy behavioural policies

A very interesting and enlightening book. It uses simple language to explain complex notions and provides very useful advice. A must-read for all parents-to-be who want to take their new role seriously and try to help their child take full advantage of his/her potential.
