We're proud to announce that in September 2009 our book NurtureShock will be published. We have a separate web site set up for it, Go there to learn more.

The book leaps off from our New York Magazine articles on the cutting edge science of kids. It covers a variety of counterintuitive topics, and relates to all stages of childhood, from toddlers to teens. It will change how you think about the kids in your life, and make you rethink how you became who you are. Ashley and I have been at work on the book since February of 2007. 


If you are interested in the book and want to be notified when it comes out, please join my mail list. This is a 100% private list seen only by me, shared with noone else.
