Review

"Under Pressure is a Godsend! Full of common sense advice that will help parents and children everywhere return to sanity, peace, and health."
—Christiane Northrup, M.D., author of The Wisdom of Menopause

"Carl Honore’s Under Pressure is must-read book for parents, educators and all those concerned with the health and well-being of children. Written with warmth, wit and incisive intelligence, Honore presents a clear and compelling argument why our current high- pressure, high-stakes culture is sucking the joy out of childhood and leaving our children ill-equipped for even the most mundane challenges of life. Solutions and alternatives are thankfully provided."
—Madeline Levine, Ph.D, Clinical psychologist and author of The Price of Privilege: How Parental Pressure and Material Advantage are Creating a Generation of Disconnected and Unhappy Kid

Under Pressure can be viewed as a wake-up call to parents and educators, as well as a solid summary of how children are being raised in the 21st century. Honoré covers a lot of territory, investigating academic testing and homework issues, extracurricular activities and sports, consumerism, and safety issues. . . . This is not a parenting book or a how-to manual, but rather a comprehensive look at the state of the childhood nation.” –Quill & Quire

Praise for In Praise of Slow:

“The No Logo of its age. . . . An epiphany for those of us who have forgotten how to look forward to things or to enjoy the moment when it arrives.”
The Herald (UK)
