Abstract:

"Ian H. Robertson explains in detail how who and what we are is sculpted throughout our lifetime, second by second, by our interactions with the world, by our relationships with other people and by the buffeting winds of fate. How does talking to a baby build its intelligence? How does teaching kids to read physically build their brain? How does learning to play a musical instrument as a child enlarge the left side of the brain and improve memory? His message is that our brains have a great untapped potential for superb achievement from childhood to death, and that we are largely in command of it."--Jacket.
