FYI - this is a lecture, not a book.
Having said that, it's a pretty decent hour-long lecture. In my opinion, Mr. Fay presents three major points: using an "energy drain" technique, repeatedly using "I know" when kids try to counter a consequence they've 'earned', and that trying to argue or 'talk sense into' an upset kid never works.
I didn't agree with everything he shared, but it was worth the listen - if nothing more than to help the parent analyze how they are handling the inevitable difficul

This is an hour long Lecture by Jim Fay who has worked with Children as a Teacher and a Principal in many schools. His son is a School Psychologist. I really like his Love and Logic approach and techniques, in raising children.
This is actually an hour long cd. Right after I listened to it I probably would have given it about 3 1/2 stars, but now that I have tried out some of the parenting techniques for a few days I gave it 5 stars.

Nails my kid perfectly. I've already tried one of the techniques and it worked. The hard part is going to be staying consistent both with how often I use this and with both parents.
I don't agree with everything but I'll take a little advice every once in awhile... when my kids are acting nuts.
Audio--- Loved it, everyone needs to hear these lectures and take stock! Highly recommend it.
This cd has saved me over and over again. It makes lots of parenting problems simple to solve.
Love this CD - I listen to it at least once a year or so as a "refresher course"!

Would love this CD!! Even for a refresher course periodically.
This was good.. short and sweet. Always good to get more examples.
Lots of good love and logic situations and examples
