NurtureShock is a Barnes & Noble pick of the week and gets more great reviews....

NurtureShock is a Barnes & Noble pick of the week.

The San Francisco Weekly says NurtureShock is "required reading" for the fall.

Stanford Magazine says: "the authors pull the bottom Jenga block out from under a towering number of assumptions modern parents hold about child-rearing."

And AV Club writes: "If NurtureShock: New Thinking About Children can actually be classified as a parenting book, it may be the least touchy-feely one ever. The new work by Po Bronson, the New York Times bestselling author of the career book What Should I Do With My Life?, delights in showing that most parental intuition and supposedly common knowledge about child rearing is just bullshit, and he has the facts to prove it. Much like in his previous work, he’s entered a genre known for emotional cheese, and produced a book that’s hard to put down and easy to take seriously.... The science is well explained and studded with examples, so it never seems dry or dumbed-down. The facts are the real strength behind the narrative, which adeptly contextualizes strange truths."
