This book is awesome, it is to-the-point, no fluff. It presents the issues and the solutions/ideas. It is perfect for busy parents who don't have time to sit and read a bunch of books, make sense of them and then try to remember it all. It's as if someone read really great books on parenting and then provides you with the best points and the "bottom-line" from each. Reading is not my favorite thing (hate reading actually) and don't have much spare time to read anyway, but I love my kids and want to raise them the best I possibly can. So when I saw this book, small and inexpensive, I picked it up, started reading it right away and following the advice, and immediately saw results. It is such an easy read, that I plan to read it again with highlighter and notebook on hand, to make sure I don't miss a thing!
