This very short book is informative and would benefit both the uneducated and the educated parent. I think that it is a useful tool even for those of us who don’t plan to have children, as it explains which ways of approaching the emotions of others are incorrect ways and which way is the correct way. As always, Gottman doesn’t talk down to you, but instead opens your eyes. I’ll read anything written by this man, and I recommend this to others.

If you don't have time to read "Raising an Emotionally Intelligent Child" by the same author, this book is a very short, quick overview of the same ideas. It helps teach ways and strategies for helping your child learn to communicate their feelings. It is a great tool for parents, and can give them something to think about in their own interactions with others.

This is a parenting book that is supposed to aid in helping adults with children and parenting with feelings and to have an added benefit of helping adults figure out their feelings as well. Didn't really work for me but it was a short read and lots of big pictures. :)
