For decades, behavioral scientists have investigated the role our environment plays in shaping who we are.
The Nurture Effect spotlights over forty years of research and reveals we have the power within our own hands to raise standards of living, improve cognitive development in our children, increase education, reduce violence, and prevent crime.
By cultivating compassionate, positive, nurturing environments in all aspects of society – from the home, to the classroom, to the boardroom – we can lay the framework to create vital change and a better world.
This book offers the keys.
