Where does Get Out of My Life rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Anthony Wolf understands teenagers. What did I get out of this book? I learned (or was reminded) that parenting is "a job, it is only a job." Take nothing personally about being a parent of a teenager. They will often treat you like rubbish (to put it kindly) and that is their job to do just that. Adolescence is often the worst time in a person's life and a teenager needs to be able to express that. Anger is like poison and remaining calm is the antidote to 99% of situations. I love this book. If there was ever an expert on teens, it is Anthony Wolf.
