    Story
    (101)

    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!"
    "Really fun read!"

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes because it looks at the "family" unit in a way we haven't before.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The different approach Bruce Feiler took to research how functional families work.


    What does Bruce Feiler bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Hear this read by Bruce Feiler makes it feel more like a discussion with the listener than just reading the book.


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

    Realizing that we are moving into unchartered territory in our technology driven world and that we need to rethink how to connect with our children and one another as a family.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was not just informative, it was fun to listen to and I am going to try many of the suggestions!
