    Story
    (87)

    Best-selling author and New York Times family columnist Bruce Feiler found himself squeezed between caring for aging parents and raising his children. So he set out on a three-year journey to find the smartest solutions and the most cutting-edge research about families. Instead of the usual family "experts", he sought out the most creative minds - from Silicon Valley to the set of Modern Family, from the country's top negotiators to the Green Berets - and asked them what team-building exercises and problem-solving techniques they use with their families.

    Amazon Customer says: "Well worth reading, even if you can't do it all!"
    "Definitely kept me intrigued and listening !"

    Story
    Would you listen to The Secrets of Happy Families again? Why?

    Yes. I'm not a frequent REPEATER ... dont watch movies or listen to books more than once very often... but I will definitely with this one simply because the information was so vast, there was no way to soak it all in with just 1 listen. The 2nd time through I'm guessing I will gain more because it wont be as much information overload/


    What did you like best about this story?

    The way the author took such a personal interest in his own family and wanting to improve himself. This wasnt about telling everyone else what they should do .. but more conveying what he found worked for him/them .. then lets the reader decide what they liked and didnt like.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the author discussed working out the daily routines / rituals to bring each other together and cut down on the chaos that occurs day to day in the home and among the family members.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the author talked about throwing out some of the standard relationship / family advice, and some of the common mundane practices, like Date Night, and a set dinner time, etc .... it opens your mind to other possibilities and makes you excited to try some yourself.


    Any additional comments?

    Great book... well written. Well read .... just all around entertaining and light... yet in depth enough to make you want more.
