"Nurture Shock" is a great option for parents who are interested in brain research. Although it is written for mass consumption, the research in "Nurture Shock" is solid. If you only have a minute, I would recommend just the first chapter which talks about praise research. This is not a book of parenting tips or skills. Instead, it provides research that gives you meaningful insight into children's development. If you get past the praise chapter, "Nurture Shock" will provide insight into language development, testing and more modern parenting topics. If you are looking for an easy read with some thought provoking research, "Nurture Shock" is a good place to start.
