  • “Catherine L’Ecuyer predicted many of the problems that we face today: the overstimulation caused by hyper-education and the digital world which is blinding our children. Catherine is gifted in two ways: she writes for the wider public about scientific foundations which have been extraordinarily consistent; and she rightfully criticizes our ingenuity when it comes to incorporating digital technology in our children’s lives, however she does this without being pessimistic but by offering practical and beautiful alternatives”  Vicente Bellver, Professor in Philosophy of Law and Politics, Valencia University, Spain
  • Catherine L’Ecuyer’s merits are not easily achieved in our times. Not only has she reached the 21st edition without promising fantastic formulas and inmediate results, but she did it combining the rigor of the current neuropediatrician literature with the long-standing and consolidated expression of pedagogical and philosophical thoughts.Hugo Lagone, Estadao Newspaper, Brazil
