In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina showed us how our brains really work--and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules for Baby, he shares what the latest science says about how to raise smart and happy children from zero to five. This book is destined to revolutionize parenting. Just one of the surprises: The best way to get your children into the college of their choice? Teach them impulse control.

    Review quote
    "Dr. Medina hits the nail on the head with 'Brain Rules for Baby.' We are always looking for ways to make our kids smarter, better, happier. Medina gives such practical, usable advice and tips." - Nina L. Shapiro, MD, UCLA School of Medicine "An engaging and fun-to-read translation of the best research on child development and effective parenting. I gave Dr. Medina's book to my own son." - Ginger Maloney, Ph.D, The Marsico Institute for Early Learning and Literacy "John Medina uses a very readable and refreshing style to present parenting strategies in the context of factual scientific information." - Jadene Wong, M.D., Stanford University School of Medicine "If you've no room for another brain-development title, weed an old one to make room for this. Covering such topics as pregnancy, relationships, and "moral" babies, the book will educate even the most learned parents. Medina's humorous, conversational style make this an absolute please to read." - Library Journal "We recommend this book to all of our new-parent groups. With a gift for storytelling, Dr. Medina marries the science with practical advice that helps make sense of it all. Sleep-deprived parents still find time to read Brain Rules for Baby and love it." - Laura Kussick, Executive Director, Program for Early Parent Support
