Description
From a leading expert, a groundbreaking book on the science of play, and its essential role in fueling our happiness and intelligence throughout our lives.

We’ve all seen the happiness on the face of a child while playing in the school yard. Or the blissful abandon of a golden retriever racing across a lawn. This is the joy of play. By definition, play is purposeless, all-consuming, and fun. But as Dr. Stuart Brown illustrates, play is anything but trivial. It is a biological drive as integral to our health as sleep or nutrition. We are designed by nature to flourish through play.

Dr. Brown has spent his career conducting more than six thousand "play histories" of humans from all walks of life. He draws on his clinical research and observations of animals, as well as advances in neuroscience and psychology, to explore the power of play in our everyday world. In this book, Dr. Brown explains:

• How parents can nurture their child's development through play
• How schools can use play effectively to motivate students, and more!

About the author:

Stuart Brown, M.D., is a medical doctor, psychiatrist, clinical researcher, and the founder of the National Institute for Play. The producer of a three-part PBS series, The Promise of Play, he has also appeared on NPR and his research was featured in a cover story in The New York Times Magazine. He lives in Carmel Valley, California, and works out of his office treehouse.
