A New York Times Bestseller

Renowned neurologist Dr. Frances E. Jensen offers a revolutionary look at the brains of teenagers, dispelling myths and offering practical advice for teens, parents and teachers.

Dr. Frances E. Jensen is chair of the department of neurology in the Perelman School of Medicine at the University of Pennsylvania. As a mother, teacher, researcher, clinician, and frequent lecturer to parents and teens, she is in a unique position to explain to readers the workings of the teen brain. In The Teenage Brain, Dr. Jensen brings to readers the astonishing findings that previously remained buried in academic journals.

The root myth scientists believed for years was that the adolescent brain was essentially an adult one, only with fewer miles on it. Over the last decade, however, the scientific community has learned that the teen years encompass vitally important stages of brain development. Samples of some of the most recent findings include:

  • Teens are better learners than adults because their brain cells more readily build memories. But this heightened adaptability can be hijacked by addiction, and the adolescent brain can become addicted more strongly and for a longer duration than the adult Read More chevron_right

   This is an illuminating and easy to follow read for both the scholar and layperson.
This is an easy and illuminating read for both the scholar and layperson. I used it in my Lifespan Development graduate psychology course because it made brain development and anatomy easy to understand. As a mom to a 14-year-old, this book makes a lot of sense. I really can't put it down.

   GREAT book.
It changes the way you look at your child, and others, and self. This is not a self-help book, and I'm not much on it. Leaving the client to make the call, Mr. Rule leaves the client with the responsibility of how to handle it. I was impressed with the product.

   Essential read for parents
I recommend this book to anyone. It completely changed the way I approach my two teenagers as well as my younger children. Once I understand how they see the world and I understand the ramifications their actions have on their future, I can approach each of their decisions or random acts with a newfound knowledge and understanding.

   Teachers and Parents must read!
What a difference a year makes? I wish I had this book when I first began my teaching career 12 years ago. My teaching would have been better because I would have understood the brain, he said. It's great to see teachers reading, but they should be required to read this. Healthy kids tend to have less problems and have more confidence, the report says.

   Too many stories that seem like the author is a bit too into herself
While the information is accurate, it is too heady for most people. What a brain! There are too many stories that seem to be written by the author, Witt said. I agree with Mr. Snow's assessment that the Government is not doing enough to support the troops.

   Not a how to guide!
As a parent of two teenagers, I am always looking for advice. The book had a lot of information about neuroscience and the brain, but it was less useful to the average reader. What do you do when your brain is so immature? Not a difficult read, Michael O'Neill said.

   A book every parent, teacher, law enforcement officer ...
He goes on to explain the biological basis for many of the behaviors the lay person can understand.

   Great Resource
I do wish I had this earlier in life with my own kids. I would have liked some more specific strategies that I could incorporate into our program, but it's well worth the read.
