Publisher's Summary

In this unique and groundbreaking book, business consultant and New York Times best-selling author Patrick Lencioni turns his sights on the most important organization in our lives - the family. As a husband and the father of four young boys, Lencioni realized the discrepancy between the time and energy his clients put into running their organizations and the reactive way most people run their personal lives. Having experienced the stress of a frantic family firsthand, he and his wife began applying some of the tools he uses with Fortune 500 companies at home, and with surprising results.

    "Extremely practical, highly useful"

    I have read a number of Patrick Lencioni's books. This one, too, does not disappoint. I read a lot of business writing and Lencioni again does well to help us grasp new habits that could be complex if we were left to decipher them ourselves.

    This book takes us through a family's trek to discern their own family values (using the 3 q's), and as a product of that, they are able to develop their own priority statements, which they use to develop short term goals while maintaining crucial priorities.

    I initially picked up this title because it promised to answer the questions my wife and I have debated for so long. My wife has come out of it even more enthusiastic than I!

    This was time well spent. My wife and I are already using it to define our own value and family priority statements.

    "Spot on!"

    My wife and I listened to this on a recent trip back from KC to Dallas. She said the life of the wife was spot on. She ordered the book from Amazon and we're going to give this approach of family planning a try to put some agreed priorities in our lives.

    "Very good reading for families like us"

    The examples in the book are extremely authentic. It was like narrating every day activities for my family. Sound practical solutions and, in many ways, fresh look at how to inject more success in family life. The narrator is a weak point.

    "Great for families, frantic or not"

    I started listening to this, then stopped and started it over so both my wife and I could listen. We loved the principles and ideas presented. This is very doable for any family, and is recommended for any family, whether they are frantic or not.

    "A must-read for the typical family"

    This book was recommended during a workshop. My wife and I read it, related to it, and immediately implemented a plan. I highly recommend!

    "Lost in the nonsensical story"

    I wanted so badly to enjoy this book and get the leadership principles from it. The "fable" completely takes over and you are left with 90% story and 10% content. I could not even finish it. Very sad.
