• Not parenting specific, but a great read as to why we all have evolved to live together and the traumatic effects when that is taken away.

  • From Tracy: I’m biased because I am that kind of late bloomer that Range references, but I also found the content fascinating from a parenting perspective.  You can read my interview with David HERE.

  • From Tracy The follow-up to Our Babies, Ourselves, Dr. Small takes on how culture and biology interact in our parenting of children.  Again, so much of what we take for granted as “normal” in raising kids is really anything but.

  • From Tracy: There is reason for controversy over some of the ideas here, but like all things academic, that is the sign of a good book.  Written years ago, but a great look at the debate over nature versus nurture.
