A quick, fun read, though it did not feel particularly profound. This is mostly a compilation of the things many a parent and kid I know has ranted about (overscheduled kids, excess media, hypercompetitiveness, endless standardized tests...) But there isn't much new in here that I haven't already heard in random forum or real-life discussions. I wish the author cited some of the study results and vignettes he quoted. Also the chapters all started to seem pretty formulaic by the end.
