Reviews

Brainstorm is eye-opening and inspiring, a great gift to us all-teens, parents of teens, and anyone who wants a full and rich life on this planet. Daniel Siegel shows how the supposed downsides of the teen years all have upsides, and that the lessons for living that await teens are ones any of us, at any age, can learn from. Teens and their parents stand to benefit immensely from reading this book, separately or together. -- Daniel Goleman, author of *Emotional Intelligence*

At last a book that really explains adolescence! `You just don't get me' is a common refrain from teenagers to their parents and teachers. Adolescents who read this book will discover that Daniel Siegel gets them. My favourite thing about this book is that Siegel sees adolescence not as a problem to be solved or a hardship to be endured, but rather as a wellspring of courage and creativity. This respectfulness is why the book works so well as a manual for adolescents, as well as their parents and mentors.

-- Lawrence J. Cohen, author of *The Opposite of Worry* and *Playful Parenting*

Siegel gives us a fresh and insightful examination of adolescence from his point of view as an expert on the brain. The book also shows him to be a thoughtful parent, a compassionate guide and a very fine writer. I strongly recommend Brainstorm to teens and to those who care about them.

-- Mary Pipher, author of *Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls* and *The Green Boat: Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture*
Brainstorm is a necessary look at why adolescents do what they do that can put parents in an emotional frenzy. The information that Dr Dan Siegel shares is not only invaluable for understanding your growing child's brain, but helps build more compassion and patience. A gift for us all. -- Goldie Hawn

-- Mary Pipher, author of Reviving Ophelia and Seeking Peace

`Siegel emerges as a big-hearted writer, fully convinced that we all possess the fundamental virtues to navigate the choppy waters of adolescence, and he is eager for us to set them loose, working with adolescents to cultivate the positive aspects - and he is hugely convincing of the intense engagement and creativity that often accompany this time period in a person's life. Smart advice ... on providing the most supportive and brain-healthy environment during the tumultuous years of adolescence.'

-- Kirkus Reviews

`This book is chock-full of cutting-edge knowledge as well as a deep compassion for teenagers, the adults they will become, and the teenagers in all of us.'

-- Alanis Morisette
