I really love watching Supernanny, so I had big expectations for this book. But, it takes on too much. It is a good introduction the subject, but I think she needs a book for each subtopic or each age range. A perfect example is that there are two pages on breastfeeding. There are also lots of filler pages of Jo with kids or kids playing. There are clear pluses, though. Its very organized, so if you were having a particular problem, you could easily pick it up and find a solution. Its not really a read cover to cover book (which is why I'm calling it read even though I didn't read most of it). There is also very sound advice; its just that you might need more detail or support than this book offers.
