Pretty good. Worth reading. I liked the short chapters focusing on a wide range of different topics. I picked this up looking for some ideas about how to teach kids about finances and ended up reading the entire thing (well, all that applied to me--I didn't read the chapters about twins, boys or only child). I did not agree with the author 100% (I did agree 90%) of the time but I appreciated the different perspective she gave. I appreciated the extra resources referenced in the book too.

I try to read one or two books like this a year, just to keep up with my development as a parent and see what experts are saying about child raising practices. This is an easy to read, very digestible book that pulls in theories and ideas from other, more specific and academic, books. While not every chapter will apply to everyone, I thought it was worth checking out if you're a parent.

Good stuff in a short format. Easy to read. Some good reminders, especially in the A for Apple chapter. How I wish I could back off and let my kids decide to just either eat or not without saying a word! I'm working on it...

Sort of a good parenting primer... a quick read and not very in-depth, but hit the highlights on some important stuff!

Excellent, non-judgmental information. Provided in an easy-to-read format (you can read bits at a time) but isn't simplistic or dumbed down. Lots to think about.
