From Library Journal:

Educator Beals wants to help left-brain children thrive. These bright, quirky, misunderstood kids who are shy, socially awkward, and oblivious to nonverbal communication are often submitted to psychological testing and medical diagnosis, as educators increasingly pathologize them under the assumption that lack of sociability is a problem. Beals especially laments the pervasive use of educational trends such as "Reform Math," which takes a subject left-brainers usually excel at and leaves them lacking by attempting to make math a social activity. Her points are valid, yet she falls short when making concrete and realistic suggestions for revising curriculums to meet multiple learning styles.-Julianne J. Smith, Ypsilanti Dist.
