In a world of modern, involved, caring parents, why are so
many kids aggressive and cruel? Where is intelligence hidden in the brain, and
why does that matter? Why do cross-racial friendships decrease in schools that

NurtureShock is a groundbreaking collaboration
between award-winning science journalists Po Bronson and Ashley
Merryman. They argue that when it comes to children we have mistaken good
intentions for good ideas. With impeccable storytelling and razor-sharp

nurturing children are in fact backfiring, because key twists in the science
have been overlooked.
Nothing like a parenting manual, the authors’ work is an

published, NurtureShock offers a revolutionary new
perspective on children that upends a library’s worth of conventional wisdom
and gets to the core of how we grow, learn, and live.
