What’s the single most important thing you can do during pregnancy? How much TV is OK for a baby? What’s the best way to handle temper tantrums? Scientists know.

In his New York Times bestseller Brain Rules, Dr. John Medina showed us how our brains
really work—and why we ought to redesign our workplaces and schools. Now, in Brain Rules
for Baby, he bridges the gap between what scientists know and what parents practice. Just one
of the surprises: The best way to get your children into college? Teach them impulse control.

Through fascinating and funny stories, Medina, a developmental molecular biologist and
dad, unravels how a child’s brain develops—and how you can optimize it.
