This unedited version's about an hour long. It won't actually be on the air until late October (it's so good, they're saving it for the member drive :-) but I'm popping it up early for that elite batch of you who are "in the loop," as we oh-so-coyly say around here. (Not really. In fact, I try to avoid that phrase as a general rule. Oh well.)

If you're a parent, or thinking of being one, this is great stuff. He basically digs into the scientific literature to take on a lot of conventional wisdom about how we raise smart, well-adjusted children. Ya dig?
