Between the ages of 12 and 24, the brain changes in important, and oftentimes maddening, ways. Siegel shows that, if parents and teens can work together to form a deeper understanding of the brain science behind all the tumult, they will be able to turn conflict into connection and form a deeper understanding of one another.

This book is poorly written. It contained very little practical and sensible advice for living with teens. I think that the professionals who praised this book are likely friends of the author. It is written for an 8th grade reading level, and it reminds me of the worst of "new age" literature.
