"Late- Talking Children is a wonderful book. For lovers of medical mysteries, Sowell has an eye for telling detail that one sees in only the finest clinical observers. For parents of children with language problems, he combines a compassionate first-person account with sound, clearheaded advice. For scientists and professionals, he offers provocative data with possibly profound implications for our understanding of language, mind, brain, and genes. And it is all done in Sowell's style: indefatigably researched, sharply reasoned, and beautifully written."
