Get Your NurtureShock

Po Bronson took career books to a new level with the best selling What Shall I Do With My Life? Coming this fall, he and co-author Ashley Merryman do the same for child-rearing books in NutureShock. The book explores current studies to debunk accepted wisdom about what makes kids happy and successful (hint: constant praise can backfire).

I’ve read the ARC and found it fascinating (who expects a book on raising kids to open with a Cary Grant anecdote?), so I’m pleased that the publisher, Twelve is offering copies to EarlyWord readers (see ad, at the right).

To request an advance copy, email Twelve, with “NurtureShock ARC” in the subject line. Don’t forget to include your full mailing address, so they know where to send it. Requests will be filled on a first-come basis. Expect 2 to 3 weeks for delivery.
