Great book Feb 6, 2007
If your child is having difficulty in school, or just doesn't like it, this book is a must read. It gives great information that all parents as well as anyone involved in the school system should know. I highly recommend it.
MUST READ FOR EVERY PARENT Nov 3, 2006
This book is an excellent, well written source that could help parents with their school age children. It will help identify the inner makings of the way we each learn (and teach) one another valuable things in life, as well as how we learn in school. Cynthia Tobias is humorous and an expert in the field of learning skills. This book is a MUST READ. Read her other books too!
Very Insightful! Jun 23, 2006
I picked up this book at the Homeschooling convention in Orlando FL. While I do not homeschool, I am at the table every night helping my son with homework and trying to add some challenges to his studies. This book not only has helped me with my child, but with other adults! Ms. Tobias has truly put in print what I have thought so many years, but I could not put into words! If you have children, read this book! If you have co-workers, if you have subordinates...read this book!
