I can't help myself - but I am really loving both books!

Healy writes about attention being so wrapped up with motivation and the emotions - it is so complicated and beautiful to think how the brain works. Her ideas about people with attention problems being wired differently are interesting - that the brain is responding differently, but they do not know if it is genetic or environmental. Anyone have any links on this?
But she also says that even with a genetic tendency to attention problems, the structured environment can be very helpful and assist in modifying attention problems.... and fostering self regulation

She also writes a lot about motivation..... anyway, I should stop gushing.

Lise Eliot also writes very convincingly about why a natural vaginal birth is in the mother and babies best interest. Again, wonderful reading how it all works so beautifully if give the chance.
