Brainstorm is eye-opening and inspiring, a great gift to us all-teens, parents of teens, and anyone who wants a full and rich life on this planet. Daniel Siegel shows how the supposed downsides of the teen years all have upsides, and that the lessons for living that await teens are ones any of us, at any age, can learn from. Teens and their parents stand to benefit immensely from reading this book, separately or together. -- Daniel Goleman, author of *Emotional Intelligence* At last a book that really explains adolescence! 'You just don't get me' is a common refrain from teenagers to their parents and teachers. Adolescents who read this book will discover that Daniel Siegel gets them. My favourite thing about this book is that Siegel sees adolescence not as a problem to be solved or a hardship to be endured, but rather as a wellspring of courage and creativity. This respectfulness is why the book works so well as a manual for adolescents, as well as their parents and mentors. -- Lawrence J. Cohen, author of *The Opposite of Worry* and *Playful Parenting* Siegel gives us a fresh and insightful examination of adolescence from his point of view as an expert on the brain. The book also shows him to be a thoughtful parent, a compassionate guide and a very fine writer. I strongly recommend Brainstorm to teens and to those who care about them. -- Mary Pipher, author of *Reviving Ophelia: Saving the Selves of Adolescent Girls* and *The Green Boat: Reviving Ourselves in Our Capsized Culture* Brainstorm is a necessary look at why adolescents do what they do that can put parents in an emotional frenzy. The information that Dr Dan Siegel shares is not only invaluable for understanding your growing child's brain, but helps build more compassion and patience. A gift for us all. -- Goldie Hawn 'Brainstorm is a must read book for every parent if they want to avoid emotional turbulence in their own lives as their children go through adolescence. It's lifesaving for the whole family.' -- Deepak Chopra, MD This book is filled with validation, vision, and clarity to help us navigate the seas of an often overwhelming time in life - the teenage years. This book is chock-full of cutting-edge knowledge as well as a deep compassion for teenagers, the adults they will become, and the teenagers in all of us. -- Alanis Morissette 'Warm-hearted, respectful, and comprehensive ... I have not seen anything to match it as a resource for thinking parents of teens.' -- Steve Biddulph 'For many parents, understanding the teenage years is a little like trying to pick up mercury with a fork. In Brainstorm, the great Dan Siegel takes the mystery out of the train crash that is adolescence. This is essential reading for every parent and every worker with young people in health, education and welfare.' -- Dr Michael Carr-Gregg 'An enlightening but straightforward read for parents of teens, or teens themselves.' The Weekend West -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine vergriffene oder nicht verfügbare Ausgabe dieses Titels.

(1) It's always good to remind oneself of the positive aspects of the developmental phase of the adolescent. Siegel lists these strengths as: intense and spontaneous emotions, intense and powerful peer and social connections, a spark of uniqueness and originality, and a profound search for one's identity and place in the universe. Frustrated parents can easily fall into the trap of seeing only your teenager's faults and negative behaviors. Remembering to see the upside (which is really only discussed in the first chapter of the book) is a good thing.
(2) Somehow Siegel wanders into the topic of healing your brain from trauma. During the course of this digression, he reviews an intriguing theory of psychological trauma (p. 176ff) that painful memories that are 'locked up' in the right hemisphere - the seat of emotion, imagery, and "implicit" (timeless and voiceless) memories - cause intense pain, fear, and flashbacks. When the right and left (verbal, analytic, logical and chronological) brain are integrated, the left side of the brain can give a coherent narrative to the trauma story and place it into a past perspective. Healing from trauma then occurs when what was formerly intense, limitless, and present danger, is transformed into more comprehensible, limited, and coherent past experience. This is a powerful theory of trauma and healing and helps to explain why social connections and social supports aid in the prevention and healing of PTSD. Note: the theory is not presented here for the first time, but Siegel's review of it is interesting.
(1) In contrast to "Brain-Based Parenting", I found the book haphazardly organized and the writing style surprisingly poor. Siegel's sentences were run-on, off topic, and varied irritatingly between medicalese and schmaltzy sentimentality. His topics were all over the map, too: from the title topic, to attachment theory, to general advice for getting enough sleep and eating well, to "Mindsight" exercises for meditation and raising awareness. I was disappointed; I felt the book didn't stick to any consistent theme and was probably a hastily put together collection of blog posts. Search "teenage brain fitness" or "the adolescent brain" on Amazon.com and one will find many appealing titles on the topic that look more propitious than this one.
(2) Siegel's stated intention is to write a book intdended to be read by both parents and their teenagers, perhaps even read aloud from one to another. Despite a number of cute cartoons, I can hardly imagine a teenager in modern America today who could make it successfully through this meandering, poorly written volume. I have one teenager and one pre-teen, and I am involved in volunteering and in contact with many of my daughters' friends (and, well, I also happen to be a psychiatrist and have seen hundreds of teens in crisis through a psychiatric emergency center in Fairfax County, Virginia). The only thing I can say in response to the idea of an American teenager finding this book readable would be "fuggedaboudit." Or maybe "you must be Cray-Cray."
I found the following books infinitely more useful, readable, and enjoyable than Brainstorm: (1) Haim Ginot's "Between Parent and Teenager", (2) Thoms Phelan's "surviving your teenager", (3) Anything by Gershen Kaufman, Ph.D., especially "personal power for teens", (4) "Brain-Based Parenting" (see above), and (5)Ginsburg's "Roots and Wings." I tried hard to find the positives in this book; I read around five books per month so I am not averse to working hard to get something from a read, so I don't give out the dreaded "2 star" rating casually. I had to put this one down for long stretches and really force myself to punch on through, however. There are any number of other books on teenagers and their development I would encourage readers to turn to before, or instead of, this one.
Dr. Siegel is an excellent researcher and he has entered into an area of study that is surprisingly not as well studied as one might guess and I don't mean those silly self-help guides in bookstores. I saw the professor speak at a conference this weekend which is why I thought of buying the book. To be honest, the room gets very crowded when he and his ego enter and it became very clear from his talk that I would be better off just reading the book instead of staying for him to recite chapter topics so I found a different workshop in the afternoon session. Now of course, the professional reading still has the professor, but he is much less egoistic in his reading than when he is putting on his show.
The text is meant for both the professional and the layperson-parent and he actually encourages the reading of at least some of the material by adolescents too. His advice is sound and his descriptions are easy to follow. Overall, an excellent resource.
