Left, Right, and Whole-Brain Writing

Many popular authors have a left-brain writing style. Some authors have a right-brain writing style. Very few authors have a whole-brain writing style.

Consider articles in news magazines. Many of these, such as the ones found in Forbes and Fortune magazines, have a left-brain writing style.

That is, these articles incorporate facts in a linear, logical format. Data and information are analyzed, and ideas flow from one idea to the next, then to the next, and so on. This is a classical left-brain writing style. Many nonfiction books, newspaper articles, and magazine stories use this writing style.

Very Smart Parents

During the 20th century parents, who are the primary educators of their children, tried to manage this vital educational role untrained and often lacking insight. “Very Smart Parents” is the ultimate whole-brain parenting book.

  • A child’s future does not merely happen, it is created
  • Every child has the creative potential to be successful
  • Creativity will determine whether your child will crawl or fly
  • Children must have vision and a passion for the future
