A hilarious and insightful read! I learned a lot about myself, my husband, parents, and siblings while reading this book. Though my family is a weird make up his chapters on each birth order described each of my siblings to a T (Clark and I are first born personalities, Becca is and only child, and Thayne is a Middle). Also his chapters on perfectionism were incredible! I learned a lot about myself, having never thought of myself as a perfectionist I realized that according to his definition I am and many of my habits and flaws made a lot more sense. I also enjoyed his chapters on parenting, as a prepare for our first baby I found a lot of ideas and insights I plan to put to use in raising my son and whatever siblings my come after him. I actually may have to go and read his parenting book. The only section I did not enjoy was his section on birth order in marriage. Since he spent most of his time saying my marriage was a bad idea that I would have to suffer to make work for the rest of my life. I married an only child and as a first born Dr. Leman believes our match up is the worst idea of all the birth order pairs. Otherwise I loved this book. It was so entertaining.
