"Simply the best book I have ever read about adolescence. . . With gentle wisdom, Steinberg guides us through truly novel findings on what happens during adolescence and tells us how, as parents and teachers, we should change our ways." - Martin E. P. Seligman, Ph. D., author of?The Optimistic Child
"If you need to understand adolescents-whether your own or anyone else's-you must read this book . . . Steinberg explainswhy 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 person's future success and happiness. In?Age of Opportunity,?the world-renowned expert on adolescence Laurence Steinberg draws on this trove of fresh evidence-including his own groundbreaking research-to explain the teenage brain's 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.
