This is not a book of scientific fact; it is a book of ideas and experiences with a factual base. It is a way of looking at things; a way of explaining what has been and what seems to be to the author. Kids, Brains, and Learning is a book of things that work. It is a book of repetition, where important points are made over and over again in slightly different fashion. It is not proposed as the answer for our generation or for mankind, but it may be a better beginning than we've seen yet.
Kids, Brains, and Learning tells us bow kids got that way-the way they are -- through evolutionary history and how you can affect your own kid's lot by what you do or don't do for him and with him.
This book presents a particular view of child development and human development. Ways and means other than those expounded in the book may be just as righteous and just as effective.
Kids, Brains, and Learning will not be read and forgotten. Much. praise may come to it; also, many violent words may be expressed at the thoughts and ideas put down here. This is good -- as the search for truth goes on.
