Praise for "Free-Range Kids": 'Lenore Skenazy is a national hero' - Mary Roach, author, "Bonk and Stiff". 'This book is a bubbly but potent corrective for the irrational fears that drive so many parents crazy. Skenazy is witty, perceptive, persuasive, and above all, sensible' - Robert Needlman, M.D., coauthor, "Dr. Spock's Baby and Child Care, 8th Edition". '"Free-Range Kids" is the best kind of manifesto: smart, funny, rigorous, sane, impassioned, and bristling with common sense. If you're a parent, or planning to become one, read this book. You have nothing to lose - apart from your anxiety' - Carl Honore, author, "In Praise of Slowness and Under Pressure". 'Even scaredy-cat parents like myself now have a how-to manual on overcoming irrational suspicions and, finally, differentiating between an axe murderer and a play date!' - David Harsanyi, syndicated columnist and author, "Nanny State". '"Free-Range Kids" makes the perfect baby shower gift' - Nancy McDermott, parenting blogger, Spiked Online. 'Moral insight without moralizing - how rare is that*' - Amity Shlaes, author, "The Forgotten Man". 'Keep "Free-Range Kids" on your bedstand next to your Bible and the TV remote, and refer to as needed during the 11 o'clock news' - Jordan Lite, news reporter, "Scientific American Online". 'Read this book - Mommy said you could' - Penn Jillette, Penn & Teller.
