“Lou Cozolino insightfully explains how secure attachment and supportive relationships are critical for healthy psychological development and the building of social brain networks. He eloquently describes how the brain is a social organ of adaptation that is critical to cognitive development. The same social brain networks should be kindled by teachers as they strive to build a community of learning. This book is a must-read for educators and their administrators.”

John Arden, PhD, author of Rewire Your Brain and Brain-Based Therapy

“Cozolino’s ingenious book weaves together new discoveries about attachment and brain science to address the concerns of both parents and scientists about the effects of educational institutions on children. The book provides a glimpse into the ideal future, when scientific facts and clinical insights will be seamlessly combined to help all of our children develop a passion for learning. Cozolino has the brain of a teacher, the heart of a therapist, and the writing talents of a master storyteller. No one has made interpersonal neurobiology more relevant to education. I hope that educators read this book—and that they listen, learn, and act.”
