Every parent should read all of Doman's books. Even if you don't agree with 100% with his methods, you will learn how important it is to take advantage of the child's early years when their mind is like a sponge.

Again, parts are repetitive if you've read his other books...but love this. My intention is NOT to make my child a genius or smart to the levels that he is talking about...rather, to help my kids to continue to love learning throughout their lives. That's all.

Critiques aside, there were a few interest

Not the most well-written book, but very interesting nonetheless. I love the idea of a "gentle revolution", which he describes in the book.
