    1. This was Skinner s most audacious move He took up the challenge from A.N Whitehead to try and explain verbal behavior Not a bad try at the time, given the theoretical framework available in the 1950 s We re a bit further down the road now I d make this comparison Verbal Behavior is to verbal behavior as The Origin of Species is to contemporary genetics, if you know what I mean


    2. A seminal work Really Half a century later, the concepts in this book are the bedrock of some of the most empirically validated approaches to teaching language to children diagnosed with autism A radically different way to think about how and why we talk but also confusing and dry.


    3. A difficult read that requires commitment to finishing However, unbeatable in every way A wonderful theoretical case for how verbal behavior develops and how it is maintained.



    4. DO YOU WANT TO UNDERSTAND HUMANS scientifically You need to read this book.Aside from the Bible, it is the most amazing book that exists.


    5. I only give it three stars because a lot of it went over my head It is a dense book, but not in a bad way I want to reread it soon and also re rate it after I finish it.



    6. This is a difficult read, which requires full commitment e.g re reading, note taking If you re interested in ABA and verbal behavior, however, it s a must read.


    7. Read for a classI like the application of this theory VERY hard to read It s a completely different language
