NurtureShockcover.jpgHere's the full UBS Forum interview I did last week with Po Bronson, coauthor of the new book NurtureShock.

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?

THIS is one of the reasons why I contribute to MPR. I'm a new mom and this is an AWESOME interview and wonderful WORTHWHILE programming.

THANK YOU so much to MPR and In the Loop!

Just saw this comment, a few days after the fact -- so glad you appreciated the interview! Listen for it again (on the radio this time) during the upcoming member drive.
