Jennifer I hope you find this interesting! The section on language acquisition was my favorite- I took a fair bit of linguistics in college for my French major. Linguists are the worst parents for experimentation... but really do end up with articulate kids. ;)

Shani So far, so good It's not quite as compulsively readable as Freakonomics, but I'm pretty sure I'll be sending copies along to some of my friends who are new parents. I wouldn't have known this existed if not for you and I'm amused to see how it's starting to show up on my Goodreads friends' lists. (For some reason, I can't go back and add a period after the first sentence. Argh!)
