This book provides an excellent overview of the science of adolescence from a pioneer in the field. The book covers the science and ties it in with practical applications. Parents, educators, and researchers will find much useful information in here. I particularly liked the last chapters that distils the knowledge and provide practical advice for these stakeholders. I also liked the case examples that bring the theory to life and illustrate that this research is sorely needed to transform many aspects of society to better serve 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 The book is a few years old now and some of the information is a bit outdated, which is no surprise given how rapidly this field is evolving.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.
Parents of adolescents -- stand by. Adolescence is starting earlier and lasting longer . . . but, according to Dr. Steinberg, that is not such a bad thing, as the adolescent mind is particularly plastic -- uniquely capable of learning and developing -- and emotions and experiences are heightened during adolescences, so the things we experience in adolescence will never quite be as wonderful when we experience them as adults. This book presents an interesting mix of academic treatise / parenting. The author provides extensive data revealing just how immature the adolescent mind can be and discusses social policy vis a vis the United States' treatment of adolescents -- teenagers and drinking, driving, military service, voting, and criminal prosecution. He encourages parents to help delay onset of puberty by ensuring our children eat well, avoid obesity, avoid overexposure to light -- and then protect our children through adolescence through authoritative parenting -- a combination of warmth, firmness, and support.
I enjoyed learning about the neuroscience surrounding the adolescent brain. I like the variety of topics within the book such as tips for parents and the criminal justice lens. It was an easy read with advice that is simple to follow.
What a refreshing perspective on adolescence! The advances in neuroscience as explained by Dr Steinberg, have given us a new understanding of how our brains develop, which is fascinating in itself, but the development of the brain during adolescence in particular, explains why it is such a perilous but exciting time in our lives - why it is truly the age of opportunity. As someone on the brink of teen parenting this book was illuminating, invigorating - adolescents are on full throttle and brakes dont work - and liberating: like being handed a compass when you're lost. Highly recommended.
I read this book for a Adolescent Psychology class; I really liked the way it explains the development of the brain at this age. I also enjoyed the analogies and stories the author uses to drive his point home. Any on who is a parent, grandparent, minister, and teacher should read this book. It will open your eyes to the understanding of the teen brain. I enjoyed the read.
