NurtureShock is On Over 30 "Best Of" Lists!

NurtureShock has been included in over 30 "Best Of 2009" lists. We're very honored to have been recognized by each of them, and the sheer number is fantastic, but what is particularly thrilling to us is the variation in the lists, themselves.

For example, Barnes & Noble, San Francisco Chronicle and iTunes recognized us as being some of the Best in General Nonfiction, while Library Journal, AV Club, East Bay Express, and Nevada NPR had us in their lists of Best of Books, without reference to genre. has us at #1 in its "Best in Self Development" category.

Meanwhile, Discover magazine and Seed magazine said we were among the Best in Science Writing. This Week in Education and others include us in their lists of Best Education Books while Big Think has our race chapter as one of the year's Best Coverage in Politics/Social Issues.

And then Momma Data and others have tapped as us being the Best Parenting Book of the Year.

Amazing. Thank you so all very much.
