Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Readable, informative about the workings of language, memory, trust, and choice, and ultimately optimistic—-while critical of a society that exudes violence and ignores prevention—-this book demands and deserves attention from parents, educators, policymakers, courts, and therapists. Highly recommended." —-Library Journal Starred Review
