A brilliant balance of the most current science on the teenage brain and stories to make it real. You may not follow all the parenting advice, or think it realistic in your household but it is food for thought, and will give you pause to think. As the topic is covered broadly, I recommend the audio version, you can breeze through what is less relevant to you and replay the gems that strike a chord. Above all else, it gives you empathy for the struggle...in case you have forgotten what it was like to be a teenager.
