Made it 2.5hrs in and only learned two things about screen time, set time limits and monitor content. The book is about how to raise children and although has great information, gives no additional instruction in how to use screen time with children to enhance lives or make them more successful in the future. If only mentions screen time and how it causes destructive behavior and how parenting and spending more time with children can benefit.

This is not for someone new to investing. The author spends 90% of the book arguing how amazing index funds are however offers no counter argument. Finally at the end he elaborates and explains index funds. Poor delivery.
