    "Academic at best"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the first 5 chapters would have provided any useful information in terms of applicability as either parent or teacher, I would have provided a higher rating. Much ado about brain scans and what not.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Judy Willis again?

    No.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Rosemary Benson?

    Never.
