really liked it

A great read, especially for parents but I think non-parents may enjoy it too because of the way it reveals causal links to personality/development. I went back and forth between thinking this was another Malcolm Gladwell-esque book that picks one unique study and holds it up to the detriment of years of common wisdom and at other times felt that the "against the grain" type studies really found their mark. The conclusion at the end of the book - that there's a flip side to every aspect of child-rearing and child development is especially good. I highly recommend this book!
