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.

I haven't started this program completely, but have made minor adjustments in how I teach Callie certain f ...more

Ok, I saw this and just had to get it from a used store. For about two weeks I was completely obsessed with it and wanting to put the program in place with me and my baby.

My child is probably bored and maybe he is hungry to learn animals and flowers and w ...more

The first 1/3 of this book is basically one big sales pitch for "the institute". Then, finally, they get into the magic method for turning your child into a walking library: flash cards. Flash cards? Yeah, flash cards.

Disappointing, to say the least. I was hoping for something more engaging. Something more experiential, perhaps, or at least more interesting than flash cards. It's an "advanced" technique for flash cards, sure, but it's still flash cards.

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.
