Over the past few decades, adolescence has lengthened, and this stage of life now lasts longer than ever. And recent research has shown that the adolescent brain is surprisingly malleable. In 'Age of Opportunity', the world-renowned expert on adolescence Laurence Steinberg draws on this trove of fresh evidence-including his own ground-breaking research-to explain the teenage brain's capacity for change, rivalling that of the infant and toddler, and to offer new strategies for instilling resilience, self-control, and other beneficial traits among young people. He shows how new discoveries about adolescence must change the way we raise, teach, and treat young people. 'Age of Opportunity' is a myth-shattering guide for parents, educators, and anyone else who cares about young people. AUTHOR: Laurence Steinberg is the author of the leading textbook on adolescence, more than 350 scholarly articles, and a dozen books. He has written for numerous publications, including the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and Psychology Today.
