In Mind in the Making, Ellen Galinsky has grouped this research into seven critical areas that children need most:
Focus and self-control
Taking on challenges
Self-directed, engaged learning
For each of these skills, Galinsky shows parents what the studies have proven, and she provides numerous concrete things that parents can do - starting today - to strengthen these skills in their children. These aren't the kinds of skills that children just pick up; these skills have to be fostered. They are the skills that give children the ability to focus on their goals so they can learn more easily and communicate what they've learned. These are the skills that prepare children for the pressures of modern life, skills that they will draw on now and for years to come.
Mind in the Making is a truly groundbreaking audiobook, one that teaches parents how to give children the most important tools they will need.

Great book for nerds
I read this type of book a lot. I'm a total child development nerd. This was a good book with a lot of great information. I loved all the references to various studies. There was a lot that I recognized and she went into more depth. It was a little hard to get through mostly because it was so based in research and the academics of the profession. The information was great. It wasn't a real page turner. :)
