Bronson's genial voice and enthusiasm work well as he narrates his and Merryman's paradigm-shifting text on parenting. The book covers a wide range of topics, from understanding why kids lie to how certain compliments can undermine their abilities. The book challenges previous conventional wisdom and replaces it with hard research based upon newer understanding of children's developing minds. In general, Bronson's energy will pull in listeners; he's at his best when discussing the theory and science behind it. His tone and emphasis help guide listeners through sometimes-complex subjects and terms. His personal anecdotes do work with the text but are not as clean or well executed in their performance.
