Reader Reviews for this Book


Review posted March 20, 2018


I work in a high school as a School Social Worker and this was a GREAT read that is very tied into my career. It gave me good insight into ways I can explain ACEs and their affects to my co-workers who don't have the same educational background as I do. Nadine's TED talks are always enjoyable, but this was an excellent way to dive deeper into the material and come away with a better understanding of how important positive relationships are in the lives of our youth.
