While the personal stories of the author, Barbara Arrowsmith (who is the founder of the Arrowsmith method), and the children they helped are wonderful, I left the book with no good idea of how the program works. Perhaps the methods are proprietary? If so, they should sell educational software for wider distribution and implementation, and if the author only had one week of training himself with Barbara Arrowsmith's program, the educational entity could make a training video or program for teachers. With the exception of working with clock faces of increasing complexity, how these children improve is really missing for me. The author makes it clear that the work is repetitive and that it can be tedious, but I was looking for how the 19 exercises work and how each affects the brain. As it stands, the book offers inspiring stories of neuro-cognitive changes that reflect the benefits of working with neuro-plasticity (vs. standard training in remedial compensatory skills) without explaining how the brain was changed. Without enough HOW, the stories, albeit interesting, left little to remember for me. The chapters seemed to simply follow a template of descriptions: 1.neuro-educational problems and 2. before and after testing results. While good descriptions, these remain simply anecdotes that I experienced as underdeveloped. In addition to explanations of HOW the exercises were implemented, it would be interesting to have a neuroscientist co-author fill in the explanation of HOW the brains changed. Maybe in the next edition?
