THE ABSORBENT MIND explains Maria Montessori's acclaimed educational method, which is now commonly practiced in public and private schools everywhere. Its effectiveness has most recently been demonstrated by the results of a study which indicates that Montessori children have improved behavioral and academic skills compared with children from the mainstream school system. The authors concluded that "when strictly implemented, Montessori education fosters social and academic skills that are equal or superior to those fostered by a pool of other types of schools."

The Montessori method of education has subsequently been applied successfully to children and is quite popular in many parts of the world. Despite much criticism of her method in the early 1930s-1940s, her method of education has undergone a revival. It can now be found on six continents.
