This book works very well on two levels. First, it is very approachable for parents and educators, with practical suggestions and clear writing. It is also based on sound, peer-reviewed science with references for those who want to get into the background. So this is a good book both for people who want to apply the information, as well as those wanting to do more detailed research in the area and looking for a starting point.
