Description: Do children's aptitudes and interests depend more on genes than parenting? The author of this riveting read answers "Yes" to this question -- and draws on two decades of research in behavioral genetics to support this provocative perspective.

Children are not born as blank slates. In fact, new research indicates that DNA, rather than parents, may determine much about how people think, feel, and behave. Although environment does play a role in development, the degree of parental influence could be far less than is normally thought. In this riveting book, psychologist David Cohen puts a human face on the age-old nature-nurture debate, and explains how genetics impact personality and aptitude. Any parent who has ever questioned what they did wrong -- or right -- needs to read Stranger in the Nest.
