I’m very gratified that people are reading and talking about the book; check out this great review in Publishers Weekly and on Brain, Mother (the blog to the top parenting magazine Brain, Child), in addition to this thoughtful review in Library Journal (you can read a PDF of it here on pages 5-6, or at the B& page for the book), along with discussion in Dance Teacher, which recommends the book, on Slate, and on orgtheory. PLAYING TO WIN is listed as one of the Top 12 Education books to take to a desert island by Parent Map, and it was the subject of an excellent book club discussion at The Brilliant Book Club: Illuminating Reads for Parents (The first set of five entries are available here: Mommy, for Real; omnimom; Urban Moo Cow; Left Brain Buddha; and School of Smock!. Click here for a link to all from the second set of discussion!). The book has also recently been spotlighted in both Dance Studio Life and Chess Life, and mentioned on the popular websites Grown & Flown and home, school. It has even been covered by the press in Spain! For more press coverage click here.
