Your brain is in its second decade, and that means you have the opportunity to blaze your own trail by shaping your brain, building its strengths, and avoiding dangers with the decisions you make. Your brain is an amazing vehicle that will take you through every one of your life’s experiences. Wouldn’t it be good to have an owner’s manual?

The Owner’s Manual for Driving Your Adolescent Brain is packed with the goods on glia and the news about neurons, with a cool way to test your brain power and the scoop on how it’s OK to make mistakes—they’ll make you stronger, if you use them as an opportunity to learn. It’s all about training your brain to help you become the very best version of yourself!

A riveting, reassuring, and plain English guide to what is going on in adolescents’ heads between the ages of ten and twenty. Yes, parents will want to read it too. But they should let their kids get to it first.
