Mind in the Making is by Ellen Galinsky, president of the Families and Work Institute, who spent nearly a decade interviewing more than 70 scientists about the latest research into how children learn. Here she presents that research in a way that’s useful for parents and educators, boiling it down to seven life skills. As some of us with spotted academic records may be happy to hear, the latest research shows that doing well in school is not as important as learning how to take on a challenge and loving to learn, among other skills.

Galinsky outlines basic things to do with children to build those skills, which will be ever more important in the post-industrial world, and she emphasizes “how teachable kids are,” as Miller put it. The book goes on sale April 6.
