I love AUDIBLE! I never get mad at traffic jams and can listen to many different books, despite my short time.
I read this book again last week. What's Going on in There is full of information, much more than Brain Rules for Babies (which is also a great book, but many tips are just Cntl C + Cntl V from this one). Of course Brain Rules for Babies is more palatable, fun and sleek, but What's Going on in There is so rich, that it deserves another realm. If you have a children, or is planning to have one, read both of them.
It's the second time that I've read this book. And what a difference it takes, because the first time I thought this book was too dark, talking about poor, addicted, minorities. A very hard to change environment, a very hard to succeed in life. Now, I see another angle. It's full of data and it can build the basis for a great life.
I didn't pay attention when I bought this book. When I understood that was written by the actress Goldie Hawn I thought I wouldn't be interested. But I gave it a try and it surprised me. A good book, well based in researches and with many good doctors/ psychologists as feed backers.
If you have "read" Julia's previous works, especially "In the Family Way," you will find the first several chapters of this book to be a lot of review with some new tidbits sprinkled in. It's all good material, it's just material you've heard before. Perhaps this is why I can't give it 5 stars. If all of the stories were new to me, I can imagine giving it 5 stars. I started to get concerned that I had just bought a compilation of excerpts from her other work. Thankfully, that wasn't the case. There's lots of new material here that will keep you thinking and laughing.
