I really found this book helpful. I started applying some of the advice and already feel like I can make fasting a part of my life. Highly recommended! I will say there were a few parts where the person reading it was different... almost like they were making audio corrections but still enjoyed this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. I think the narrator captured the feel of this book perfectly. I never really thought about how to live well before this book and the art of refined living at most practical level rang out. I actually walked a little taller and tried to enjoy the most mundane chores while listening.

I really enjoyed the no nonsense and humorous way information was given in this book. I haven't really paid much attention to my skin but after reaching a certain birthday recently I knew it was time to start taking better care of myself, so I bought this audiobook. I learned a ton and have started using or applying methods mentioned. I even bought the hard cover as a reference book. Highly Recommended!

If you could sum up Setting Limits with Your Strong-Willed Child in three words, what would they be?

I found this book to be very helpful. I even tried some of the techniques with great results. I come from the southern way of discipline and the tools illustrated in this book are more effective.

Who was your favorite character and why?

N/A

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

He voice was very soothing and clear. I felt like he was teaching me with patience and understanding.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

No extreme reaction but I did have quite a few "AH-HA" moments.
