If you need to understand adolescentswhether your own or anyone elsesyou must read this book . . . Steinberg explains why most of our presumptions about adolescence are dead wrong and reveals the truth about this exciting and unnerving stage of life.Jennifer Senior, author of All Joy and No Fun
Over the past few decades, adolescence has lengthened, and this stage of life now lasts longer than ever. Recent research has shown that the adolescent brain is surprisingly malleable, making it a crucial time of life for determining a persons future success and happiness. In Age of Opportunity, the world-renowned expert on adolescence Laurence Steinberg draws on this trove of fresh evidenceincluding his own groundbreaking researchto explain the teenage brains capacity for change and to offer new strategies for instilling resilience, self-control, and other beneficial traits. By showing how new discoveries about adolescence must change the way we raise, teach, and treat young people, Steinberg provides a myth-shattering guide for parents, educators, and anyone else who cares about adolescents.

The book is a few years old now and some of the information is a bit outdated, which is no surprise given how rapidly this field is evolving. It would be great to see an updated edition. The book is also clearly focused on the U.S. As a reader from Western Europe, I would like more information about the situation in other parts of the world, too. The contrasts that the author draws between the US and Europe sometimes seem overly optimistic. It’s definitely not all sunshine and roses for adolescents in much of Europe. Overall, I think the book provides a great introduction to the science of adolescence that is both comprehensive, well supported, and very approachable.
The author works directly in the psychology field investigating the teenage years and is himself a father so he has a good stand for the information he talks about. This book highlights different aspects of adolescent development, explaining parenting styles with what you should and shouldn't do in order to provide you child with the best possible chances of having a smoother adolescent period. The book is easy too read, there isn't that much psychological terminology used and when it is it is explained, the authors personal experiences are used in order to help explain the topics discussed and it is very informative and helpful. I am not a parent but I would hugely recommend this book to people that want to be parents, understand the teenage years, are parents, and people that have close relationships to children/teens.
I'm so glad I bought this book, it has been a really enjoyable and informative read.
