Introduction

Why Love Matters explains why love is essential to brain development in the early years of life, particularly to the development of our social and emotional brain systems, and presents the startling discoveries that provide the answers to how our emotional lives work.

Sue Gerhardt considers how the earliest relationship shapes the baby’s nervous system, with lasting consequences, and how our adult life is influenced by infancy despite our inability to remember babyhood. She shows how the development of the brain can affect future emotional well being, and goes on to look at specific early ‘pathways’ that can affect the way we respond to stress and lead to conditions such as anorexia, addiction, and anti-social behaviour.

Why Love Matters is a lively and very accessible interpretation of the latest findings in neuroscience, psychology, psychoanalysis and biochemistry. It will be invaluable to psychotherapists and psychoanalysts, mental health professionals, parents and all those concerned with the central importance of brain development in relation to many later adult difficulties.

Our Story

When I became a new father, I knew that I wanted to be the best parent that I could possibly be, but I didn't know exactly what I should do. Talking to the other parents, I found that I wasn't the only one with an unread pile of parenting books.

We should read them all, but there has to be an easier way to learn how to be a great parent. This was the inspiration for #dadsclub, a private book club for dads. An easy way for dads to "finish" 100 books in a year, without flipping a single page.

Each week, Dad's Club members are sent a 10-minute audio summary of a New York Times or Amazon best seller. It's bite-sized, actionable knowledge delivered straight to your favorite podcast app.

Together, the Dad's Club is on a mission to help each other be better, so our families can live better.

Why Join

It'd be great to have all the info without reading through all the bs in the books.

This is a great idea. Let’s be honest, nobody has time for parenting books nowadays.

I’ve definitely lamented the lack of Dad-specific parenting books, advice, etc.
